Do your sims ever get tired of the same dark, boring-looking Maxis OS? Then this mod is for you!

Introducing Microsoft Windows for The Sims 2!
(Windows 2000, XP, Vista, 7, and 8.1 are Available)

Do away with the dark, ugly Maxis OS for the power of Microsoft's Windows!

I have included 4 1280x720 photos of each version of this mod, demonstrating the Chat service, Yahoo! E-mail, the Desktop and one of the Bootup screens for each OS!

Here are the screenshots of the desktops of each version of this mod:


Mod Type: Texture overrides.
Compressed: Yes
Conflicts: This mod will conflict with any other mod that modifies the default computerscreens,
for example: joninmobile's Simlish Modthesims Default Replacement Browse The Web Screens
Installation and Uninstallation:

To Install: Place your chosen version of this mod in your Downloads folder.

To Uninstall: Delete from your Downloads folder.

Take note that you can only have one (1) version of this mod in your downloads folder at any time.

Notes: These default replacement mods are fully compatible with NixNivis's Brighter Computer Screen Mod, and it looks great too!
Additionally, this mod will NOT override computers with custom screens, only computers that use the game's built-in screens.

Tools Used: SimPE v0.72.01c, The Compressorizer, MSPaint, and a bunch of screen captures from actual computers!
