Winter, Christmas Themes For Windows

I know users who change wallpapers and themes regularly, and others who have never changed the theme and still use the standard default theme that ships with Windows.

Statistics to compare Windows 7 theme usage with theme usage on previous Windows operating systems could reveal whether the changes made to the Windows 7 themes engine resulted in usage changes.

I would expect that there are more Windows 7 users that change themes on a regular basis than there are on previous versions (per thousand installations).

Why? Because Microsoft made it easier to change basic themes and because it publishes new official themes regularly.

Today I would like to highlight Winter and Christmas themes. While it may be a bit early in the year, considering that we are still in the Autumn period, I still think that some readers may enjoy the overview.

The themes are limited to users of the Windows 7 operating systems. The wallpapers on the other hand can be used on other operating systems as well. Just extract the .themepack themes on your computer with a program like 7-zip. All wallpapers are located in the DesktopBackground folder.

      I refuse to “follow anyone” on Facebook or Twitter. First of all, it is a “sales promotion for both of them, and secondly…there is no reason for anyone to have to use these two to do “whatever”!
      Facebook and Twitter have both been proved to be “UNSAFE” AND WHO NEEDS TO KNOW EVERYTIME YOU GO TO THE BATHROOM!!!
