It is now the month of February and we all know what that means: Valentines Day is on its way. Microsoft is getting in the mood by releasing a rose-themed theme for its Windows 7 operating system and Rovio is prepping a Facebook version of its incredibly popular Angry Birds game.

Starting with Microsoft, the Redmond-based software giant has released a new Windows 7 theme on the Personalization Gallery, the place where you can find a large collection of themes, desktop backgrounds and gadgets. The new theme is called Roses and it is a collection of 10 images of, well, roses. The theme offers a nice means of decorating your desktop in honor of Valentines Day. Below you can read the theme’s official description and check out a preview.


Official description of the Roses theme:
“Known as "the queen of flowers," roses have been valued for thousands of years for their beauty and fragrance. Their connection to romance also spans the generations, popping up in songs, poems, and in lovers' bouquets since at least the Middle Ages. Savor the extraordinary beauty of roses in this free Windows 7 theme.”

The Roses theme is offered free of charge to Windows 7 Home Premium, Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate users. You can download the theme from the Personalization Gallery here.

Moving on to Rovio, the Finnish computer game developer has a very nice Valentines Day surprise for all the Angry Birds fans out there. The surprise is that Angry Birds will be made available on Facebook on the 14th of February – on Valentines Day.

“SQUAWK! Everyone's favorite furious fowl is coming to Facebook! Nothing says "Happy Valentine's Day" like competitive pig-popping among friends!” said the Rovio team.

Rovio has released a gameplay trailer for the Facebook version of Angry Birds it will release this February. You can check it out below.
