Are you unsure whether to migrate over to Windows 8 or not? Are you, like me, more satisfied with your current Windows platform? If you are not sure what to do, and yet want to experiance the wonders of Windows 8, then you need only to install Windows 8 themes on your previous Windows platforms to get some measure of satisfaction.
Now there might be many reasons why you wouldn’t want to migrate to Windows 8. First among many is the fact is that only the Consumer Preview of the OS is available. Admittedly, it is not at its best stage, with a lot of instabilities and bugs. Secondly, many drivers still need to be optimized for the new OS. Then there is the fact that Windows 7 was awesome! I, among many, am a big fan of Windows 7.
Then comes the uncertainty around the OS. It is not yet close to finished. Who knows how it will perform when it’s finished, despite all the promise it’s showing? There is a common joke about Windows that it only performs well in alternate releases. Let me explain.
Windows 95, as you all might know, lifted Windows, from nothing, into the OS world with its graphical UI (User Interface). Then came the not so popular Windows NT. After that came the king of its time, Windows 98. The Windows 2000/ME were again a flop. Its successor, the Windows XP was a legend! It is still in use among a large number of people.
Vista, after XP was a fiasco, and most will agree with me. Then came Windows 7 to salvage the situation caused by Vista. And salvage, it did! Windows 7 is a legend which will remain in use for a long time, and I am sure of that. So the question is, how well will Windows 8 fare against history? There’s a lot of uncertainty around it. Which brings us back to our point. Getting the Windows 8 experiance on your previous Windows. Well, here are some best themes that you can try on other Windows platforms.
