It is a best practice to manage GPOs on the most recent OS that you have. For example, if you have Windows 7, you should create GPOs on a Windows 7 machine. When configuring settings within a GPO, you will notice an Operating System requirment. For example, a setting may say "Windows Vista or Higher". If you set that setting, the client must be Windows Vista or Higher to process the setting. If the client is Not Vista or lower, it will simply ignore the setting.

If you have a windows 2008 DC in place, wich is sounds like you do, if you edit the Group policy on the 2008 DC you will get the new GPOs for windows 2008 (Windows 7).

I would highly recomend you also create a Centeral Configuration store for your GPO templates.
