The Windows 8 experience (Pokki, Rainmeter, Builds)

Since the preview of windows 8 a lot of  stuff modeled after the style has emerged around the web. Here goes a try to sum it all up.

POKKI

The windows gadget bar was the best thing when Vista came out (however flawed it was :P)

The adaptation of the same into mac like applications has really got us all excited. The first freeware that actually gives us a feel of this windows revolution is Pokki. Small widgets are placed in the taskbar and on being clicked they open up as small popups. The application is beautifully designed using HTML5, CSS and Javascript. It has been around for a few months, however the first beta came out yesterday.

Leaked builds!!

Apart from all contreversy this is Win8. But it is a rather old milestone version so it doesnt have any of that epic live homescreen or fancy shit of sorts. Dont get pissy. Programmers love to show off so I can assure you one developer or the other will end  up leaking it to the world. Till then (Build 7580)- [LINK]

UPDATE: The latest build is 7989. Unfortunately, its only availible in X64. Here it is- [link] [link]

That’s it Folks!

RED PILL ENABLER

“Unlock all features locked by slc.dll in all windows 8 build (7955,7959,7989,…) x86 and x64, without patching any dll (It just add a new slc.dll, and rename the old slc.dll to slcrp.dll).”

However it is rather buggy but most have found it to be brilliant. Here- [LINK]
