LION
Welcome to the return of OS X Lion for your Windows 8 and 8.1 desktop.

:new: UPDATE

01/16/2014 | Combine taskbar fix, jumplist fix, start menu fix.

To get started you'll first need to make sure your system is patched to accept themes.
I recommend using uxstyle.com/ for a user friendly install.

Here is a more in depth article on installing Visual Styles or Themes.
How to Install Custom Themes by neiio

Once your system is patched it's time to install the themes.
Place the contents of the downloaded 'themes' folder into your 
'WindowsResourcesThemes' folder.
You should then be able to see your themes installed if you right click on your desktop and select 'personalize' from the menu.  There you'll be able to choose which them you wish to use.

Some special instructions for Windows 8.1 users, there is an included registry hack to modify the caption text to blank.  Make sure to use it.

Also these themes are borderless, which means you'll have to use this handy tool, WinaeroGlass found at winaero.com/comment.php?commen…
You'll have to reload it each time you change styles.  I found creating a shortcut to it in my Programs Startup folder to be usefull.

You may also have to play with the border width using this app winaero.com/download.php?view.…

Also for a more minimal look try using Ribbon Disabler for Windows 8 found here winaero.com/comment.php?commen… it also works on 8.1.

I can't seem to get rid off the border, like in your preview. It still shows a pixel or two wide, even tho i lowered the settings on winaero's app to the lowest.

Can you make a version which doesn't need shit which is "WinaeroGlass" not only does it gives a shitty watermark on desktop, it also annoys you with a window which popups every time you start this things. I despise this pice of software >,<

I would like to have a mac styled theme without all the 3rd party software if possible, btw.

You are thinking of AeroGlass by Bigmuscle.  Winaero glass if you look into it is freeware without a watermark. :)
It's the only way to get borderless or rounded themes, btw.

Hi, When I install the theme (its very nice by the way) I get these weird looking borders, I can make them smaller with the second application you mentioned, but If I use aeroglass to get rid of it, the top bar goes invisible, do you know how I can fix this? thanks, Bizla

How do you apply the start orbs?

I tried Windows 8.1 Start Orb Changer.

Didn't work. :(
