    Default Turn Vista into Windows 3.11

    I found this theme for vista, if you like feeling a bit retro and lets face it if you where born before the 80's then you probably do. Then you will love this Window Blind.




    Quote from Artist.
    'Windows 3.11 never had a close button or a taskbar so I have created them as though they were originally with it and have tried to replicate every little quirk of an old OS for a new OS. It might look like a simple skin but this was actually quite challenging for some strange reason'

    Enjoy. JR

    Nice find JR it was really cutting edge at the time, some of us were still using typewritters in the office and I had to go on a special course to get to learn this new thing Windows. Never thought it would take off...............just proves how wrong I was

    That actually looks nice, for "retro" design that is. The author did a great job.

    This ... is ... a ... GREAT find

    You have tuts on:
    Make XP look like Vista
    Kake Vista look like XP
    Make Vista look like Windows 7
    but never came across How to Make Vista look like Windows 3.11

    But does it require WindowsBlind for applying ?

    I only wish it were a visual style, not WindowsBind.
