Bootleg of the month

The desktop of a fresh install of Windows The Avengers

Windows The Avengers is a bootleg Windows XP edition, released sometime in 2014 and added to the archive on December 12th, 2021. It is known for having a comically bad installer and theme, and for possibly birthing various bootleg offsprings.

As the name suggests, the OS is themed after the Marvel movie The Avengers, specifically the 2012 film. Appropriately, the OS comes with several themes based on that movie (along with some other unrelated themes). By default, the theme is set to an Windows 7 Aero-esque style complete with transparent borders and effects. The bootleg has a WPI with extra software, like many others.

Despite the fact that the OS itself is in English, several pieces of software bundled with the OS comes in Arabic.
