    Hi. I've been a long time reader on this forum, and the stuff here have really helped me understand Windows better.

    I thought it will be good to give something back. This is github.com/buildcenter/windowsbuilder, a powershell driven framework for modding Windows.

    Instead of the traditional audit mode modding, this system here directly make modifications to the stock install.wim image. I think this is much cleaner and less buggy than relying on copyprofile. Right now I am working on win10-1709 and got the following modules:

    - AccountPicture: mod the default dark grey account avatar
    - Appx: remove appx provisioned packages like Microsoft solitaire
    - BsodColor: change the bsod color scheme. not working.
    - Capability: remove windows capabilites
    - CopyFile: directly inject files
    - Cursors: add cursor schemes
    - Driver: add 3rd party driver
    - HostFile: block host names
    - Lockscreen: change the default lockscreen image
    - OEMInfo: customize your OEM info
    - OEMLicense: customize the OEM license on oobe
    - OptionalFeatures: add or remove optional features
    - Package: remove system packages, including hidden ones like Cortana and onedrive
    - Regional: modify the default regional settings
    - SoundTheme: add sound theme
    - StartupSound: modify the system bootup sound
    - ThemeColor: change the default color from blue to something else
    - TTS: enable Eva and David

    You can make customizations to a config file and files in the resources folder, and then the build script will modify the wim file accordingly. Your end result wim can be deployed with minimal interaction from the user.

    Please let me know what you think. Contributions are very welcomed.
