Turn Your Windows Desktop to Mac OS X with Snow Transformation Pack

Tired of the usual interface for your Windows desktop? Want to make it look like a Mac OS X, but doesn't want to drop the whole system? Well, the Snow Transformation Pack is here to solve your dilemma. And it's absolutely F-R-E-E!

Now you can change the appearance of your whole Windows Desktop into Mac OS X without dropping the Microsoft system. Snow Transformation Pack will change your GUI including the login screen, wallpapers, icons, clocks, dialog boxes, sounds, docks and many more! However, you’ll need to disable your User Account Control in order to install it. Meaning you will need to run the installer twice — one to attenuate the UAC and another one to incorporate the package. Afterwards, you’ll be prompted whether you like to install a few background apps — which is good if you don’t need your computer to be powerful. Surprisingly, with a few exceptions in usability, it looks like the Mac OS X. To make it more Mac-like, you can add a few manual tweaks like clicking on the Taskbar, hitting Properties, and using small tab icons. If you’re tired of the usual Windows GUI, you can have a Mac experience for a while by downloading the Snow Transformation Pack. It is absolutely free but available for Windows Vista/7 only.

Windows XP Downgrade Rights, Extended Until 2020

You think Windows XP will be out in the market? Think again.

Microsoft has announced that it will be extending the life of Windows XP offering downgrade rights to companies who buy copies of Windows 7 for the next decade. Downgrade rights allow consumers who bought the later version of Windows OS to remove it and install an old version without paying for a second license. It let users bide their time until they are ready to upgrade.

Microsoft has offered downgrade rights for XP since the release of Windows Vista, but giving multiple years to reverse an OS back to an older version is unexpected. To sum up the details, Windows XP downgrade rights will be extended as long as Windows 7 is supported by Microsoft. That means until January 2020 for Windows 7 Professional and January 2015 for Windows 7 Ultimate. These downgrade rights are intended for enterprise customers only.
