Halloween Windows 7 Themes From Microsoft

While I can’t say I am really crazy about Halloween, it’s always great to see new stuff released on this occasion, no matter if we’re talking about T-shirts, mouse pads, games, books or even Windows 7 themes. As you probably know already, I’m not crazy about Windows 7, either, although I do own a Windows 7 laptop that runs this OS as it should, but I must also confess that I never cared much about the way my laptop’s OS looks – I just messed with a few settings back when I got it, and that’s it! On the other hand, I am sure a lot of people care about the looks of their desktops and, if given the chance, they wouldn’t miss a Halloween Windows 7 theme coming straight from Microsoft…

… especially when we’re talking about two Halloween Windows 7 themes, not one! The official mumbo-jumbo is pretty straightforward, going exactly like this: “Dark abandoned rooms, mysterious cobwebbed passages, spiral staircases descending into shadows, and ancient arches leading to the unknown: an atmospheric free theme for Windows 7.” Since the screenshots above should say it all, I guess there’s nothing else to add about these two Windows 7 interface sweetners, right?

In case you’re still stuck with Vista or that good old Windows XP, then it’s bad news – according to the official page(click here to visit it), “Windows 7 themes can only be used in Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.” Sure, you can always extract only the wallpapers and then use them on a Windows XP/Vista/Linux/Mac computer, but that would turn our Halloween Windows 7 themes into Halloween desktop wallpapers and nothing more. Well… I guess that’s it – enjoy this find, it doesn’t happen too often to see Windows 7 themes released by Microsoft themselves! 😉
