Microsoft is currently working on completing Milestone 3 of the Windows 8 development process. This basically means that a lot can – and will – change in the coming months. The user interface is no exception to that, even though it looks cleaner and more professional than that of Windows 7 already.
When the first desktop screenshots of Windows 8 appeared, several designers began to create themes for existing operating systems.
The latest is called 8 Skin Pack for 7. It was posted on Deviantart where it is available for public download. The theme looks very professional, which can be attributed to the fact that it goes beyond what standard themes can offer in Windows 7.
Here are the basics that you need to know before you start installing the Windows 8 theme:
- It works on both 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows 7 SP1, works better under 32-bit according to the developer.
- It is compatible with all language versions of Windows 7.
- It is necessary to patch system files before you can install the theme.
- Before you do that, create a backup of your system.
The developer has posted links to all necessary files and tools on the theme’s page.
If you ask me, then I’d say that this is the best looking Windows 8 theme so far.More Galleries: All Galleries | Windows 7 Galleries | Windows 8 Galleries
