Makes Windows Look Like Windows Phone

OK, this utility won’t really make Windows look like Windows Phone, but it seems Metro is everywhere these days.   I just posted a note about making Windows 7 look like Windows 8,  then I found this Metro Home open source project.  This utlity/app/gadget will add a very nice looking metro styled info pane on your desktop. As a user of Windows Phone, this looks very appealing!  Of course when Windows 8 is readily available I’m not sure either of the projects will have much use to me. In the meantime, check it out the pre-release code:  http://www.htchome.org/en/metro/
