Linux Transformation Pack For Windows 7 Fix


Note: Please bear in mind that such transformation packs are difficult to uninstall and a system restore point will not revert the changes. Before installing the Gnome Skin Pack, make sure that you backup your computer to revert the changes (if required). Moreover, make sure that UAC (User Account Control) is disabled.

It appears that this transformation pack follows the GUI of Gnome 2, as the recently released Gnome 3 supports a more stylish GUI. You can use the links below to download the respective 32-bit and 64-bit version of the Skin Pack.

Ubuntu 10.04(Lucid Lynx)/9.10 users or any other Linux based OS users which uses GNOME desktop as windows manager can install windows 7 themes pack or Win2-7 Pack for windows 7 look on your ubuntu(10.04 or older versions).Win2-7 pack 5.7.2 is the latest version available now!(See below for download link).The purpose of this win2-7 pack is to provide simple,efficient,user friendly and easily customizable windows 7 transformation pack for the gnome desktop.

Do you want to try Windows 7 but don't want to shell out the upgrade price Or do you long to give Mac OS X a test run but don't particularly want to buy a Mac There's a way to do that (although the OS vendors won't love you for it): Use a "transformation pack."

These software packages go beyond changing the graphical user interface to make it resemble that of a different OS. Most of the technically sophisticated transformation packs will tweak or patch the native operating system's code and add startup applications to more accurately simulate the functionality of another OS.

It's important to note that the changes these packs do to your computer's operating system are only superficial. Just because a transformation pack makes your OS look and play like Mac OS X, for instance, doesn't mean you can then install Final Cut Pro on your not-a-Mac. You may get the look, but not necessarily the full performance, and certainly not the software compatibility, of the operating system being mimicked -- for that you need to run the actual OS on your system using virtualization software such as VirtualBox.

But even virtualization software won't let you run Mac OS X on a Windows or Linux machine, and such gaps are where transformation packs come in. They're also appealing to inveterate computer tweakers -- and to anyone who doesn't want to shell out for a second OS just to give it a quick spin.

Be warned, however: These OS makeovers are all unauthorized. Apple in no way endorses any of the transformation packs that turn Windows or Linux into an ersatz OS X, nor does Microsoft support those giving Windows XP a facelift to make it look like Windows 7.

I took a look at four of these transformation packs. This is by no means a comprehensive list, but rather an overview of some of the most popular. I tested how easy each was to install (and to uninstall), how useful it is in practical terms (i.e., would you really want to use it for your day-to-day computing) and, very importantly, whether the pack can adversely affect your computer's original OS. (Remember, many of these packages will alter system files and add programs, which can bog down your computer's performance or even lock up your operating system. Always back everything up before installing one.)

I ran all four packages on a very basic 2GHz Pentium Mobile notebook with 2GB of RAM and no built-in 3D graphics. It dual-boots Windows XP Home and Ubuntu Linux. Even on this unimpressive machine, most of the transformation packs ran reasonably well. Keep reading for my assessments of each one.

This software comes from the same developer (going by the nickname "Windows X") who assembled and put out a popular transformation pack that remade Windows XP into a pretty convincing facsimile of Windows Vista. In fact, his Vista Transformation Pack established how extensive an OS makeover can go; beyond merely redoing the theme, Vista Transformation Pack hacked system files and incorporated mini-applicat
