The first is the Windows 8 Lemon Drop visual style. It has a Mac style minmalistic interface.
You can download this here.
And the second is the Whisper Windows 7 visual style with its clean, clear interface.
You can download this VS here.
The guys at Changed for Life have a FREE 2013 desktop calendar for download here.
Simply print on glossy paper then use a cheap plate holder as your calendar holder. Enjoy!
Here’s an icon set that’s certainly worth a look. Over 165 Litho system icons for pretty much any program in a comprehensive package. You can download this well designed icon set here.
The new Windows 8 transformation pack has been released but from my experience its buggy and needs some work. Also, the welcome screen still has the text ‘Consumer preview’. On my first install it locked up my Windows XP system and on reboot the start menu and taskbar went missing. I also noticed the package reset my browser settings so personal addons and extensions were uninstalled and the start up page was replaced with windowsxlive.net.
The whole package is resource intensive and left me less than impressed. But for those of you who can’t wait for bug-fixes which are inevitable in later versions, you can experience the Windows 8 transformation pack for yourself here.
Though also a little buggy and resource intensive, I would recommend the more stable but no longer supported Seven Transformation pack. This is still available for download here.
I had trouble with the installation of 3rd party applications and ended up removing all of them. Also, I prefer Vista Switcher to Winflip or the alt-tab alternative included in the transformation pack.
Here are the settings I ended up with:
and a screenshot of my desktop:
Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows 7 users would be aware of DreamScenes included in the Extras update. This allows you to view videos and slideshows as your wallpaper. Now, this feature is available to all Vista non-Ultimate and Windows XP users as well. For lots more information and and HD videos for DreamScene check out Winmatrix.
Here’s a set of pleasing browser icons. This icon pack includes icons for Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer and Konqueror – take your pick.
