PreCentral: Themed: Windows 8 (WIP)

1 post in this topic

WP Central

In our very first edition of Themed we took a look at webICS, a theme that applied an Android 4.0-layer of Ice Cream over the webOS UI. A lot of theming work is done to make one device look like another - this blogger at one point had a Windows XP-running Tablet PC outfitted to look and generally look like Mac OS X. webOS themes are no exception to this make-it-look-like-something-else, uh, theme, and some are more ambitions than others.

webOS Nation forum member fraincs took to the forums with a theme of his that's a work in progress, but it's one that we couldn't help but find interesting. He's taking webOS and reskinning it to look like something unexpected: Windows 8.Yeah, the next generation Microsoft operating system for desktop, laptops, and tablets.

The work-in-progress theme doesn't throw a layer of blocky flat Metro UI onto your TouchPad, and it's not likely to ever do that. What it does to is reskin the aspects of webOS like the Quick Launch bar, Just Type search box, and phone app emulator to give them a Windows 8-inspired appearance. That means flat color boxes and square corners, very much in opposition to the rounded corners and heavy gradients that give webOS depth where Windows Metro is flat.

While the Windows 8 theme is a work in progress right now, we couldn't help but give it a once over. If you're feeling the urge to do the same, go ahead and jump into the forums to check it out.
