We have previously written about HTC Sense widget for Windows 7 which makes our Windows 7 desktop look alike of HTC Home screen. It also simulates the current weather on the desktop. Now the simulation of Windows Phone 7 for Windows 7 called Metro Home is also available.
Metro Home is a special version of HTC Home with dynamic interface. It displays the same boxes like Windows Phone 7 including time, weather, pictures etc. Let’s look at the requirements of Metro Home:
- PC with Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit operation systems). The program also may function with other Windows operation systems, but we cannot guarantee that.
- Internet connection (also possible through proxy-server)
- Installed Microsoft.NET Framework 4
