HTC Sense UI for PC

For HTC or HTC Sense UI fans out there, now you can have it on your desktop/PC/laptop. You can run it on WinXP and Win7.
Here is the print screen of it.

Basically it has the time, date and weather only. The time and date are based on your PC/laptop, but the weather is from either Accuweather or MSN. So internet connection is needed to have the weather update. You can choose weather of which place you want it to show and how often to update it.

The website:

For Win7, you can right away use the 2.0. I tried the 2.0 version but it require .NET framework 4.0 on my WinXP. I tried to install .NET 4.0, but having problem to install it on my WinXP SP3.

Version 1.1 works for my WinXP SP3.

I have this desktop widget on my windows 7 netbook and it works great! Never glitches, always accurate weather reports.

Well, I think that is a cool Idea from HTC, the tough competition must have been pushing them to make such amazing new ideas.
