    Hey guys, do you think there any possibility in replacing the Windows NT kernel at all with NT 10. I remember there was a way to do it with Windows 7 but support ends with that next month. Any ideas?

    I never heard of a way to do it and based on my understanding of the underlying architecture you're not be able to hot-swap kernels without doing some serious grunt-work to make some layers talk to each other (And I mean some serious work using the core source code as opposed to writing some code on the existing installs)

    I'd say this isn't really possible without Microsoft doing it. But I'd be happy to be wrong.

    I'd think it's a lot easier than compared to Win XP (Given that a lot of the NT 10 kernel is the 6.x kernel but renamed and updated rather than replaced)

    That said, I still think it's a pretty large task and you would need to have a team(s) going through it and it would also need to be heavily tested to make to catch any compatibility changes as the newer updates may not work with the existing shell components of Win7.
