purple for win8 x86 and x64 by yacine29 purple for win8 x86 and x64 by yacine29
:new: now you can use any background using this little app [link]
-Updated with x64 files ,thanks to ~pierdelp :aww:

this is an alternative background for windows 8 developer build

the green one was horrible ...

-how to install :
1-run "takeownership.reg"
2-go to windows/system32 and take ownership of shsxs.dll and uxtheme.dll
3-rename them "shsxs.dll.bak" and uxtheme.dll.bak
4-extract the ones included in the archive
5-reboot ,and you are done :)

note that it also changes the logon screen color ,and some other parts



comments are welcome :)

think I'll be staying with windows 7 if the end release looks this gay :(

Stupid Microsoft, why they had to go and fuck with the GUI so much, it works perfect on win7 .. and now they switch this horrid metro shit .. on tables or mobile devices sure thing, but desktops .. yuck :(

I do agree ,yet you can disable the start screen and get back to the classic win7 start menu using some 3rd party app ,the only thing I like in windows 8 is the "hybrid boot" option (it decrease considerably the boot time)

I wasn't trying to convince you to upgrade to windows 8 lol
windows 7 is much more "handy" =D ,while everything that Microsoft added in windows 8 is for the sake of change ,it doesn't offer anything which is worth upgrading to win 8 (except fast boot times ;p)

ils ont radicalement changé l'interface ,et t'aura un peu de mal a t'y habitué
et puis il n'y a plus de menu démarrer ,le start screen est loin d'être aussi pratique

open uxtheme.dll with a hex editor ,press ctrl+f and search this hexadicimal value : 0E6D38 (which is the default green color in hex) ,you will find two values ,but don't know which one is for the middle and which one is for the welcome screen lol
