Anyone tried the Vista Transformation pack?

I have downloaded this pack today and it is superb. It is only a 5MB download though you have to patch the file 'uxthemes.dll' first. It completely transforms the look of XP and is well worth a try!

The patcher is available from click here

The Vista Pack itself is available from click here

Let me know what you all think.

You wanted to know what we all think.

If I understand this Transformation Pack correctly, it gives XP the appearance of another O/S, right?

Well, from my point of view and I might be old fashioned in this but, I use my computers. I don't have them sitting there doing little other than displaying their operating system desktop or GUI to be admired by me or anyone else.

Of course I use my computer you fool. I just see it as a refreshing change to the usual XP themes.

I have just been looking, the Vista Pack is 25 mb. Or am I on the wrong one?

There is a 'Lite' version click here

Sorry, I tried it but I don't care for it. Each to his own, eh!
