We have earlier shared a set of Windows 8 transformation packs for Windows 7. And now we have Mosaic ,earlier known as Metro Home 2,is an experiment by Stealth2009 and allows your Windows 7 desktop to have Metro Looks.
It works exactly as Windows phone 7 , with Windows 8 tablets design having live tiles or widgets synced live with your information from PC or web.It is built upon .Net Framework 4.0 and runs on Windows 7 only.
Adding from author :
Mosaic supports WPF and HTML widgets. Currently HTML widgets has some restrictions: they are visible only in Fullscreen mode, there are some problems with input.
Currently some widgets are just link to something (e.g. video or desktop or control panel) but in future they could get more functions.
Mosaic is in alpha stage and can work unstable
Some tips for using Mosaic:
- To open Mosaic menu move mouse cursor to the right border of screen and click. This could not work if your taskbar placed on the right or left or you have more than one monitor.
- To add widgets open Mosaic menu click on the Widgets… icon and choose widget
- To remove widget click on widget icon in Widgets menu again
- By default widgets are shown over your windows and can be covered by them. There is fullscreen mode in the Mosaic options which makes Mosaic to cover whole screen
- If your widgets covered by windows just click on the right border of screen and they will quickly bring to front
- Some widgets has options which can be accessed through context menu
- If widgets animation annoys you, you can disable it in Mosaic options
- “Me” widget shows your avatar from Windows. You can change it by dragging any picture to it
