I am using windows 7 now. It is great, no doubt. Previously I tried vista for a few days, but I found it making my system slow and easily crash-able. So I bounced back to xp and weighted for 7 to release. In windows 7, only one thing I found less attractive than xp that it is not so easy to customize. In xp, I used windowblinds, iconpackager, styler, and many apps to make it over at will, but the versions of windowblinds and iconpackager I have dont work in 7. Styler is not applicable in 7 at all. so I found xp is easily customizable.

Still I dont want to back to xp because it is old, needs a lot of drivers and codecs to run properly, and most important thing is that it lacks aero. In my openion, if xp comes with aero, it would be great. But the greatest option would be xp with aero and cover flow.

Edit: I found 7 (versions higher than home basic) backward from xp coz it doesnt run in all systems. To have aero, you need a graphics card or onboard graphics, wherw xp can be installed in almost all machines.

This is windows xp black edition. A modded version of xp with a windowblinds theme (perhaps invi pro) and thoojse sidebar (a vista sidebar clone). It flows here and there in file sharing sites, and contains a lot of spywares. So my suggestion, dont show any interest on it.
The wallpaper is hal walpaper (from the film space odessy).

You almost won a prise ... It's XP Pro 64 ... Attached is XP Pro 32.
The only thing I'm missing in XP is DX10.

Since W7 Beta .. I've been trying to put missing XP tools back in W7 so I can use it.
I think it's easier to make XP look like W7 .. and add the Toys n Gadgets ..
Than Add the good tools back in W7.

I don't do Themes .. So I had to Email my Neighbor for these Screen Shots ..
If there was any spyware in it .. He would Know it.

In both the shots, only one visible drawback is system icons. if they are changed to 7 icons, and the system trey is organised, it would be almost difficult to say that "no! its not 7, it is merely a xp. When I used xp, my most favorite game was to make it look like vista or leopard.

But if u only apply themes on genuine microsoft os, and do not use any modded os, there is no risk of spywares.
