• Looking to make WPF applications more Metro-styled in Windows 7

    I've just installed Windows 8 on my computer and I really like 'Window Chrome' in Office Suite and Visual Studio. Now, I'm still developing applications in Windows 7 but I'm looking for a way to emulate the style in Windows 8. Is there an existing template or libraries to add a more "Modern UI"...
