As mentioned earlier, Microsoft has announced the launch of Windows 7 (beta) and you can grab a free copy as well. But, for that you are required to be using Vista and you must have enough RAM to spare. Just in case you like to test-drive and experience the Windows 7 feeling, here are some Windows 7 themes for Vista and XP.

    seriously i see this win 7 thing just an update to a moderate product called windows vista. it’s just that. even with the graphic environment same thing. i don’t know why everybody is buzzing anyway…

      Microsoft made a huge blunder by releasing a crappy OS called Vista and instead of investing on it, they invested on building a better OS (which is nothing but fixed version of Vista) and gave some cosmetic touches.

        Confession: Sometimes I write for others then for myself. this is one such post.

    Yeh, I agree with statos. I don’t understand the ‘hype’… Although, I might check out some of their new wallpaper. :-)

      Just to be fair from microsoft’s perspective, Windows 7’s Minimum Requirements are much lesser than what it was for Vista. That is why I believe Windows 7 to be an improved/fixed version of Vista and I predict it gonna be a huge hit. Ofcourse I won’t dare to beta test any MS product :)

    I had forgotten about the possibility that some users of Vista and XP would want their interfaces to look more like Windows 7 is currently looking. It makes sense, and these themes have come out quite soon after the release of the beta version. The designers must have been on top of the issue.

      These themes were released long time back but I just compiled and presented them together
