Softpedia Editor's Review for Windows 8 Transformation Pack


Bring to your desktop the look of Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system

Written by Bogdan Popa on January 16th, 2012
Windows Transformation Pack is a bundle of tools developed to convert virtually any edition of Windows, be it XP, Vista or 7, to Windows 8. The change focuses only on the interface though, as this pack won't bring any of the features the developers over at the Redmond-based giant promise to include in the upcoming iteration of Windows.

The installation of the Windows Transformation Pack is perhaps the most difficult part, as you could actually spend several minutes in front of the screen to decide what features you should select. Fortunately, many options are pretty intuitive, but, if you're a user who has never experienced Windows 8, it's most likely you'll have little to no idea about the things you're about to install.

The interface is pretty basic and, as noted during our test, it's only a matter of choosing among a bunch of options that impact directly on the way your operating system looks.

This Windows Transformation Pack can change almost everything, starting with icons, the Start Menu, themes and wallpapers. Plus, it brings a fresh logon screen and pre-configured gadgets for Windows 8's Metro UI.

As enticing as the new Windows 8 interface may be, it can still a little bit risky to install such packs, as history proved that uninstalling this kind of application can actually lead to tons of errors in the OS and there are quite a few user reports that confirm it for this transformation pack.

All things considered, if you're planning to get an early taste of Windows 8, this new pack is a great solution, but only if you want your computer to look cool because productivity could be affected to a certain extent.
