    I don’t know about you, but personally I have been watching Windows Phone 7 development closely (you can even say I own a device). Interestingly, it seems there are also some other Android users out there interested in the visual aspects of WP7 and here is where we get this new theme. Developed over at XDA, this theme bring you most of the look Windows Phone 7 has to offer and a bit of the feel, for those interested in the whole thing. The theme gives you

    Just for anyone as crazy as I am about trying new things....It works flawlessly on the original Droid running the latest unstable gingerbread release I could find. USB isn't recognized so you have to boot to recovery and mount usb mass storage and put it on the sd card, then boot and go to astro and install and your done.

    downloaded the lite version from the market on my D1 and had the same issue that multiple people who commented did. I got nothing but a black screen when it launched.

    While I am all for themes it never ceases to amaze me how that when developing an alternate platform somebody always seeks to make it look like 'the other guy' in some way or form be it icons color scheme or even name.

    IMO Android is ANDROID. There are so many themes that speak out in terms of originality and creativity that just about anything 'similar' seems almost pointless.

    Of course part of the open platform is choice. If such a thing is your cup of tea them by all means go for it I wont be however. Its far easier to display androids capabilities and the creativity of ROM designers with original work. I hear enough of 'Iphone can' or 'blackberry can' without tolerating a voice going 'why are those windows icons there then?'
    Just my 2 cents

    Why would you want the horrible Windows look on your phone. Android look is sooo much better. Adw/launcher pro make it even better.

    FCing a lot. Its cool to see. And ill prob rag on my friend who has a WP7 phone lol but just like any other build that is based off BB/iphone/now IP7. It wont last as a main focus for more then a few days for your normal user.

    Some people who are locked into android that might want a windows phone might find it nice till they can move over.

    In the end some people like it. Nothing wrong with it in any way.
