I have no idea why this topic died, so I shall start anew!  And to start this random train, the ads in this site are giving me sites for "young Japanese singles!"  Odd. :-X

wait...I thought 3 was on the old site, then we had 4th one here called "new software edition". Now this would be 5...or with the theme of number titles, it would be 4.

Okay, anyone have their xp looking like this?

Well, its mine, and it was done COMPLETELY FREE.

Goodness gracious, atariangamer. That looks too much like Windows Vista to me. I want my XP PC to look separate from Vista. If I want it to look like Vista, I'll get a new Vista computer, or install it over or with XP on my current computer, all of which are extremely unlikely events in the foreseeable future.

I hope that isn't "Windows XP Service Pack 3" or any other similar hack. Who did that to your computer for "free", anyway?

:( I did. Vista looks great, but even after toying with it in Staples, I decided it really was bad, and not to even buy it. However, the graphics look awesome, and I knew there was some way to do it (I had just gotten Stardock WindowBlinds trial version). Well, I was looking for some ways when this video on youtube showed me some programs, albeit out of date. However, I got two things from it: Madotate 3d (makes the windows 3d for easier shuffling) and TopDesk (simulates Vista's task switching) and I had to find an alternate DL...it was bugged from the video.
I then decided to look around, and found someplace called crystalxp.net, that hosted BricoPacks. This can make your xp look like Vista, Linux, or Mac. It gave me the icons, bar at the top, and some cursors (not shown), and the taskbar and window styles. I then said "well, now to find a sidebar". Google's wouldn't download, so I found an alternative. But its a bad one. O well.

Sorry for the long post, but I think this is kinda awesome.

One thing I forgot to comment on: What is with the program icons at the top of the screenshot, the Firefox-looking one in particular?

Nope, its called RocketDock: http://rocketdock.com/
Came with Vista Inspirat 2 (the bricopack), and one of the PNG (somehow scaleable w/o losing quality) icon alternatives was this cool firefox. I chose it.


EDIT: Whoops! Replica posted.
Well, its not exactly vista...its Vista Inspired. I have another theme you might like...Actually, you might not...it looks kinda weird, and the transparency messes up normal function:

Eh...plus, I have no idea where to get a REAL vista wallpaper (mebe replica could help? in 1280x800). Thats the Microsoft Starlight background...minus the logo. I did add some good vista styled screensavers. but, o well. Replica, can you post a picture of your desktop? I am wanting to get mine to look right.

Actually, I have my own wallpaper of The zelda game Ocarina of time, hang on and I'll post a regular vista one on it. I think I could post some wall paper off of the computer for you if you want. (My res is 1280X800 to.) You need a screen saver as well?

Any way, I messed around with mine and it doesn't really look all that differant.

Thanks. Wow, my laptop really looks like Vista now. These screensavers...I really don't think they are vista, even vista like. And I dont think that taking the .scr from the system would work. It might use extra resources that xp doesn't have. If I get farther in my quest...I will post links and instrux on how to do it (on my website, not here).

Well, does anyone have the installer for the Google Sidebar? or a link?

FOR THE RANDOM: Rocky just came on 30 miniutes ago! I'm kinda ashamed to say I haven't seen it. Already, its awesome. I've seen alot of stuff about it...now i get to see it.

I dont think you would want the Toolbar, it just gets in my way.
