If you are a sucker for beautiful and organized desktop, then I’m sure you love the all new UI that Microsoft brought with Windows Vista. But I know a lot of you might not want to install Vista just for its looks, if you are one of those people who love the stability and features that Windows XP offers, but you want to have the Vista look, then Vista Transformation Pack is for you.
The Developers of Vista Transformation Pack have just released the latest in the series of the Transformation packs and this time, it makes your Windows XP install look like a complete ditto of Windows Vista Ultimate, with all the drop shadows, reflections, and all the other eye candy that you see in Windows Vista.
The latest version, i.e. version 8 brings a lot of new stuff. Some of the important additions are :
- Added TrueTransparency 0.8.5 to bring Aero glass-like transparency effects
- Added WinFlip 0.42 to emulate Vista Flip3D
- Added CPU speed to welcome center
- Updated Vista Sidebar to version 2.3 Lite
I installed it on my spare machine and it worked like a charm. But I would recommend that you set up a System restore before you install Vista Transformation Pack, just incase something goes wrong. From my past experiences with VTP, the uninstaller of VTP doesn’t work perfect, so you might to need to restore your system to a previous state to get back the Vanilla Windows look, incase you decide to remove Vista Transformation Pack..
