Windows8 Developer Preview Kit by PeterRollar Windows8 Developer Preview Kit by PeterRollar
Customize your OS to look like the most recent version of Windows8:)
What you get is what you see.

:new:Have a look at this wonderful tutorial by Vishal Gupta for the best way how to use this[link]

File contains: A Windows8 lookalike bootscreen (WindowsXP only. Sorry)
You need TuneUp Utilities to apply it. Free trial of TuneUp here[link]

A Windows8 lookalike logon (XP users only)

A Windows8 "startmenu" (Vistart). You need to download the Vistart.exe from
Lee-soft.com.[link] Download link included in the download. Lee-soft doesn't
allow the redistribution of their executables anymore. So there's no other way. Works with XP, Vista and Windows7.

A Styler skin which imitates the Ribbon UI of Windows8. Works on XP, Vista and Windows7 (Needs some patience and experience to use in Vista and Windows7).Styler software free available here[link]

A skin for Komalo's wonderful deviation BorderSkin(Glass borders) Works on Xp, Vista and 7.

A rightside shellstyle (XP only).

Windows8 Developer Preview wallpapers

Two different taskbar images for XP. Replace them using Reshacker.

A transparent overlay for the Windows8 version which can easily be added to any wallpaper you use.

A theme for SBar which gives you the squared preview like in Win8 and also the look of the systemtray.. Not really finished now. Will be updated soon. Works on XP, Vista and 7.SBar free available here[link] Don't download it from another place, because it is made for version 1.041.

T clock light which gives your taskbar clock the look of Windows8.

This is WIP. So stay tuned.:D

Screenshots taken from my XP SP3 system.

This was part of a transformation pack for XP, and it ate up nearly all my time. So no time for Win7. Meanwhile it is outdated.

can you give me the configuration for tclock lite? (like format and stuff maybe even better as a tutorial)

And can you give me the styler toolbar installer for vista? i am suspecting that our versions are different because you said it worked on vista...

The styler toolbar is version 1.401 and can be downloaded on Crystalxp.There's no Vista version. You have to run it in compatibility mode.

Most of this stuff is already done for Windows7. So there's no need to do one more. Simply look around DA and you will find everything.:)

Thank you so much for the feature.:handshake:
The new theme looks very nice. Only the preview pictures are very blurred, and after clicking on it you get a miniview instead of a maximized picture. Tested with Firefox, will test it with IE later. Maybe this only happens to me.
