I'm developing version 2.0 right now. By saying development, I'm not making new software to put in or some new stunning visual style. Darn, I started to miss days I burnt my soul refining every pixel in themes at night till next dawn, seeking every possibility to get close to Longhorn/Vista as much as possible. I also miss my friend Lee who spent all day and night working on projects in lee-soft.com. It was great time.

I realized my prime time about theming and features replication has passed already. The best I can still give to community is finest selection and presentation for means to get there. Nice UI and easy UI for moderating Windows customization. I actually put a lot of effort and thoughts for making installer things highly flexible and simple. Windows 8 UX Pack is the first project I really make it to get there and hope you'll like it.

I remember those days. Vista Transformation Pack was very popular at that time. :)
