Apple iPhone gets Windows Vista interface

Vista icons, Windows Sidebar and more

iPhone enthusiasts can now install an emulation version of Microsoft’s Windows Vista user interface on to their handsets.

The new VistaPerfection 2.0 theme for jailbroken iPhones is available now from Spec-Works. It 'enhances' the iPhone by adding a Windows Vista interface onto the device.

The application took a few days to create and includes over 90 icons, wallpaper and sounds, including a toolbar and Vista chimes.

Mac bloggers have been reluctant to praise the software, with the Boy Genius Report's Zach Epstein noting that it might be useful for "a Vista addict who has begrudgingly picked up an iPhone but always loathed its clean UI."
