Previously, I’ve written several posts about the upcoming Windows 8 and here are some of the links.
In fact, I’ve also covered on how to get the feel of using Windows 8 features on Windows 7 platform through the installation of Windows 8 pack and NewGen. I personally believe the best way to experience all the new features in Windows 8 is by installing Windows 8 on your PC but this is not a popular option for most of us, so here’s another Windows 8 transformation pack that can change the landscape of the previous version of Windows platform.
Windows 8 Transformation Pack
Windows 8 Transformation Pack is useful package to those who want to experience the exciting new features of Windows 8 without the need to install Windows 8 Developer Preview. This transformation pack is released by Windows X’s Live, the developer of 7 Transformation Pack. You may think that you will not stand a chance to experience Windows 8 features if you are using Windows Vista or Windows XP. You are wrong there because this transformation pack supports Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.
Windows 8 Transformation Pack will essentially transform your Windows user interface that include but not limited to themes, Windows 8 boot screen, login screen, wallpapers, sounds and icons. Among new features that are available in this pack is the User Tile on taskbar, Aero’s Auto-Colorization and Metro UI (Newgen).
