Refresh your boring Windows desktop by transforming it to resemble the sleek Mac OS X with the FlyakiteOSX transformation pack. The free software package automates the installation of tweaks, third-party programs, desktop themes and menus to make your Windows PC look and act like OS X (see screenshots below).
I tried the software and found the installation easy. I did not encounter errors when I installed it into my Windows XP with Service Pack 2 office computer. You need to restart your computer after the installation.
I was concerned that the transformation would be such a resource hog and would slow my system to the point that it becomes unusable. It did not. I was surprised that I did not notice any noticeable speed difference after I installed FlyakiteOSX.
What’s great about the transformation pack is that it mimics OS X’s menu system, where you see icons docked at the bottom of your screen. This menu system is very useable and is way superior to the menu system used by Windows. It is also such an eye candy.
Here are screenshots of the desktop of my office PC after I installed FlyakitOSX (click on photos to view larger images):
