Check out the Sailing Theme for Windows 7

Redmond-based software giant Microsoft has released yet another Windows 7 theme that focuses on the beauty of the open water. Earlier this month Microsoft rolled out the Surfing theme, which is a collection of 10 top quality images of waves. The Surfing theme is now followed by the Sailing theme for Windows 7, which is a collection of 14 top quality images that present ships sailing on the open seas.

“The surfing theme puts you right in the tubes, hearing the roar of the waves and seeing the sun sparkling through the water,” explained Jennifer Shepherd, site manager for the Windows Personalization Gallery. “The sailing theme puts you on deck for a virtual voyage from Boracay in the South Pacific to Bar Harbor, Maine, with stopovers in ports of call such as Antigua, Sardinia, and the Maldives.”


What I liked about the Surfing theme is that the beautiful images are accompanied by a nice sound-scheme. Get the Surfing theme and you will hear seagulls calling, you will hear waves crashing, you can hear drops of water falling, and several other interesting sounds. The recently released Sailing theme uses the same sound-scheme as the Surfing theme.

Jennifer Shepherd again: “As I was working on finding images for these two themes, it occurred to me that something essential was missing: Sounds! So these two themes are a bit different than others we’ve released. Seagulls, splashes, waves, and water-drops – even a distant foghorn – now signal key events in Windows, from the arrival of a new email to the emptying of the Recycle Bin.

The abovementioned Surfing and Sailing themes are available for download, free of charge of course, on the Personalization Gallery. Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, and Ultimate users can get the themes and enjoy the beautiful images and the cool sound-scheme these two themes feature. Windows 7 users can get more than 100 themes from the Personalization Gallery.
