Windows Thin PC

Windows Thin PC (WinTPC)  is a stripped down version of Windows 7  for legacy PCs that do not have the resources to support a full version of Windows 7. WinTPC includes some management features of the full Windows 7 operating system, but end users can’t run services, business applications such as Microsoft Office, or store data locally.

Windows Thin PC is useful for companies that have Windows XP hardware and want to migrate to Windows 7 without updating their PC hardware. Despite the “thin” name, WinTPC doesn’t run on thin client devices.
