    Windows 8 Themes


    How will MS pressure win 7 loyalists to upgrade? They won't let them install Win 8 themes.


    I have already posted that Win 7 themes and gadgets install successfully onto the Win 8 Preview.

    Man, that was a surprise. I got the item in a Hotmail report. Anyway, MS has published on a blog that the new Windows 8 themes will not be compatible with Windows 7.

    That's right. Deskthemepacks don't work on Win 7. Themepacks works on 7 and 8.
