Apple‘s next upcoming OS X 10.9 dubbed as OS X Mavericks was announced recently at the WWDC 2013. OS X Mavericks boasts improvements and a lot of changes under the hood. If you adore the look of the latest OS X and want the same look for your Windows operating system, here’s OS X Mavericks transformation pack for you.

OS X 10.9 Mavericks transformation pack is available for Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 including Windows Server Editions. According to the developer, using Mavericks transformation pack you’ll have the best user experiences which greatly resembles the real OS X Mavericks from Windows operating system side.

In one of our earlier articles, we shared a good news for Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick” users who wants to get Unity 2D without upgrading to the latest Ubuntu 11.04 version.

Unity 2D is basically a desktop shell developed for hardware platforms that don’t support Unity’s OpenGL requirements. In other words, it’s developed for Ubuntu systems having less hardware resources.

2D’s architecture is very close to that of the original Unity desktop shell since it shares the same backend components, except that it replaces the user interface elements. The user interface elements which gets replaced in this strip down version of the desktop shell are the panel, launcher and places components. Moreover, it uses a tweaked version of Metacity instead of Compiz as its window manager.

Unity is “the completely new” user experience available in Ubuntu 11.04. It is available in two versions; Unity for the powerful machines with compatible graphics cards and Unity 2D, the less hardware resource hungry version. I prefer and use Unity 2D much more than Unity 3D on my Ubuntu 11.04 system.

If you’re still stuck with Ubuntu 10.10 for some reason or the other and you don’t want to miss out entirely on the “new” Unity user experience. You can now get it on your Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick” by using the PPA‘s listed in this article.
