Microsoft’s legal team has struck down against an iPhone hacker who was developing and distributing software to emulate Vista on an iPhone.

The coder told ModMyiFone, "Due to a big fat legal letter that was sent from Microsoft, I will no longer be making/distributing Vista themes."

The developer was building software called VistaPerfection 2.0, software which hacks the user interface of the iPhone for the ‘perfect’ Vista experience. The software offers over 90 icons along with the Vista wallpaper, dock and on/off ‘experience’.

It replaces the iPhone dock with Windows Vista style bar, while the WiFi icon, EDGE icon, and even the slide to unlock arrow were all to be Vista-themed as well.
