Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Theme Transformation Pack For Windows 7 Available for Download

A new transformation pack makes skinning Windows 7 to like OS X Lion an absolute breeze. This transformation pack will transform the way your Windows 7 looks into the next-gen Mac OS. You’ll find it over at DeviantArt from user hameddanger.

It is an extremely easy to install Mac UI theme, which transforms the look of your Windows 7 into a Mac OS X Lion desktop. It does not require any theme patching software and can be installed via a simple executable file. It can be quite handy for die hard Mac lovers who require using Windows for some reason (e.g. at office), or Windows users who wish to bring the Mac style to their desktop.

The finished look is very nice, though it’s not without glitches. The top portion of a Firefox 4+ window, for example, looks a bit odd with no borders. Another irk is that drop shadows behind application windows are blurred by Windows 7’s Aero Glass functionality. Disabling transparency in your personalization won’t really help — you’ll be left with non-transparent shadows which look even less attractive. I’d also like to see an Expose impersonator added to the pack, like dexpose2 (though it’s certainly easy enough to download and install separately) to complete the look.

Thanks
