Windows 8 interface - Omnimo 5 released:Free Download


Everyone craves something they don’t have or can’t have for one reason or another. Whenever a new version of an operating system is previewed, it is common for users of existing versions to want to mimic the new features or look of the upcoming release. The Metro interface found in Windows Phone 7 and Windows 8 is a case in point, and using Omnimo 4.1 for Rainmeter, you can transform the look of your computer to look as though you have Windows 8 installed.
Seasoned system tweakers will be aware of Rainmeter, a free desktop customization tool that can be used to completely - and we mean completely - change the look of your computer. Used in conjunction with the Omnimo 4.1 for Rainmeter skin, you can easily achieve the look of Windows 8 and its tile based Metro interface.
The skin not only changes the appearance of your desktop, it also helps to make it more useful. Each of the tiles that makes up the interface can be customised in a variety of ways to display all sorted of information from the number of unread emails in your inbox to the weather forecast for your area. The tiles can also be used as shortcuts to your most commonly used programs and web sites which can be a real boost to productivity.
All that is needed to take full advantage of this free skin is a copy of the free software Rainmeter. Once these are both installed, you are ready to start customising your desktop. Whether you are looking forward to the next version of Windows or not, Omnimo is a great addition to your desktop that you're sure to love.
Omnimo 5 is a huge upgrade. It brings a Windows 8 panel and sidebar (which is customizable), kiosk apps and much more.
Verdict:
If you are impatient to update the look of Windows but can’t wait for Windows 8 to be released, this impressive skin may be just what you have been looking for.
