The development team behind the Windows 7 operating system will be releasing the RC (Release Candidate) version to TechNet and MSDN subscribers today, and a few days later to the general public. But what if you do not want to download and install the operating system? If you simply wish to stick with your Windows XP OS and at the same time make XP look like Windows 7, then you can use a free piece of software called Seven Transformation Pack 1.0.

By downloading and installing Seven Transformation Pack 1.0, which comes free or charge by the way, you will be able to modify the following items in your XP operating system: boot screen, welcome/logon screen, new ,sstyle files (visual styles), new desktop icons, new file icons, new tool bar icons, new progress dialogs, new sound schemes, sounds schemes, new wallpapers, and many more.

“Seven Transformation Pack is a software utility that transforms Windows XP's appearance to resemble that of Microsoft Windows 7. 7TP will transform your entire user interface, including a 7-themed Boot Screen, Welcome Screen, and Visual Style, as well as new icons, wallpapers, and more,” explains the developer.

Transforming your XP operating system into a Windows 7 look-alike takes but 10 steps – this is when you get to choose which mods to implement, things like system applications UI and Windows interface, screen resolution, and 3rd party apps. Once you choose the mods you wish to implement (pay attention to 3rd party apps and their system requirements) all you have to do is wait for the software to do its thing (the installation time will vary according to your system configuration).

Keep in mind that Seven Transformation Pack is a not an alternative to Windows 7. You will get the looks, but you will not get the functionality that Windows 7 has to offer. And with Windows 7 Release Candidate soon to become publicly available, you might consider downloading the OS (for free) and testing it (Windows 7 RC will work well into 2010).

If you would like to get Seven Transformation Pack, a download location is available here and here.
