Redmond-based software giant Microsoft has posted a third Windows 7 theme to the Personalization Gallery. Bearing the simple name “Winter”, this theme is meant to get you into a festive mood, just like the other two themes Microsoft published, mainly Holiday Lights and Snow Angels. The Holiday Lights theme was rolled out in November, the day before Thanksgiving, while the snow Angels theme was rolled out earlier this month, about a week ago.

What does the Winter theme has to offer? As its name so adequately points out, this theme focuses on one specific season – winter, of course. The theme is a collection of 13 top quality images that have one thing in common – lots and lots of snow. There’s snow outside and there’s plenty of snow on your desktop thanks to this theme.

Here’s the theme’s official description as presented on the Windows Personalization Gallery: “Serene scenes of snowy landscapes grace this seasonal Windows 7 theme.”

I mentioned above that Winter is the third festive, wintery theme Microsoft rolled out this season. The first theme that celebrates the winter holidays that Microsoft released this season is Holiday Lights. This Windows 7 theme is a collection of 17 top quality images that feature Christmas lights and Christmas trees and various decorations. On the Windows 7 Personalization Gallery this theme is described as follows: “Brighten your desktop with sparkling images of holiday celebration and winter wonder in this Windows 7 theme.”

The second theme rolled out by Microsoft is called Snow Angels. It is a collection of 5 good looking images that have two things in common: images of snowflakes, tons of snowflakes; and images of angels, winged girls that remind me of manga cartoons. On the Windows 7 Personalization Gallery this theme is described as follows: “Snowflakes fall as delicately as angel wings in this wintry Windows 7 theme.”
