    If you would like to get a taste of Windows 8 before it comes out, a dev over at XDA has created a Metro UI theme that will work on any Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich based Android tablet. This theme is effectively a functioning replica of the Windows 8 aesthetics and more. How is that for cross-platform creativity?

    BroBot175 is the creator of this eclectic fusion of Android and Windows 8. It is still in beta so it sill needs some tweaking, but over-all it is a pretty solid and complete package. Here's a quote from the TalkAndroid article with a few details,

    Head over to the XDA source link below, and sound off in the forums if you have tried this and what you think of it.

    Incidentally, I know we all love Android, but we can always appreciate good tech when we see it. So, if any of you guys are potentially interested in checking out Windows 8 tablets in the future, we have a sister-site dedicated to them @ WindowsTabletForum.com.

    This is pretty cool. Might give it a try on my CM9 Touchpad.

    not a Windows fan at all, especially the live tiles, but I can definitely appreciate the fact that people are able to make this happen. Some may question "why would you want you android to look like win8?" Because we can ;)

    I tried installing it on my nexus and got a status 0 error. Looks like a good chunk of people at xda are getting it too. Looked fun to try out : (
