A Windows 8 clock on your Windows 7 desktop

Windows 8 Desktop Clock is a simple application that puts a clock inspired by the next OS release from Microsoft on your Windows desktop.

Microsoft's new operating system, Windows 8 , hasn't been released yet, but programs like Windows Desktop Clock 8 allow you to get a taste before the actual event. Installing the clock is very easy - just download, unzip and run the program file.

Windows 8 Desktop Clock displays the time, date and day of week. The minimalist design and transparencies give a futuristic air to the clock, and it really is a very elegant way to display the time.

The downside - and it's a big one - is that Windows 8 Desktop Clock doesn't let you choose the size or the place where the clock appears.

Windows 8 Desktop Clock is a simple, free solution and a great way to get a taste of the new Windows 8.

PROS

  • Very easy to use and install
  • Nice appearance
  • A taste of Windows 8!

CONS

  • No personalization options

Program available in other languages
