Windows 7 Christmas Edition 2015 is a bootleg Windows 7 SP1 edition, which was created for TeamOS by The Rain. It released on December 25, 2014, and was added to the archive on December 13, 2021.

This bootleg used to be the second largest Windows 7 bootleg in the collection, but it has since been knocked down to 10th place due to all the Black ISOs being added later. Windows 7 8.1 10 PRO 2016 (also known as E-Gamer Edition, it's actually by Freeware Sys, so don't worry it's not some boring compilation ISO) (8.8 GiB) and Windows 7 Indego x64 2015 (9.6 GiB) have since surpassed this bootleg as the largest Windows 7 bootleg.

It is also known for having a comically broken default theme (especially in Aero), and being the last entry on the CollabVM Advent Calendar 2021 edition.

The mod was also used as the OS on VM 0b0t, a VM on CollabVM, since the 8th revision, before being superseded by Windows 7 Mac Extreme 2015 on the 11th revision, and shortly after due to a crash, Windows 10 Christmas Magic Pro on the 11.1th revision.


The bootleg is a modified Windows 7 SP1 ISO, with a Christmas skin pack applied. It has some programs added, along with some themes, and wallpapers. It is not preactivated, but you can use the included Windows Loader to activate it.

The ISO was made using WinToolkit.
