    depends on what style you are lookin for... for xp the hot thing is windows 7 clones which i use... well i usually modify them to my liking first... xp has so many to choose from so basically anything and everything is out there... i will say if youre gonna go with win7 styles for xp look up vishalgupta on deviantart... he has some great stuff plus he did the original vista clones for xp as well... if ya choose win7 style i highly recommend using the iconized taskbar hack for xp... let me know if ya want some visual styles i can hook ya up... ive got about 1gb worth of styles ive collected or made

    Lol I reckon you might as well just install W7 if you want it to look exactly like W7.

    I tried loading one of the W7 themes though anyway and it took like a whole minute to change to the new theme, it must use a lot of system resources obviously.

    I however didn't decide to try the registry edit to make the icons huge and text not show on the tasks on the taskbar though to make it even more identical to W7 as I am probably not going to use it permanently at this stage.

    I couldn't imagine using that new theme permanently being my computer was lagging after it finally loaded so I think I would need more ram if I was to use that W7 theme permanently, how much ram do you have? Is the limit still 4gb's on x86 or has sp3 made the limit more now?

    Wow you have a lot of themes, I have like about 4 or 5ish lol, do you find it hard to find a specific theme with 1gb worth of themes?!?

    Anyway I'd still be interested if you want to show me some screenshots of some of your favorites, maybe some of the ones you edited and if you have them some ones that don't look completely identical to W7/vista, sorta like the unique Royal Vista 2 theme I got, I tend to like the blackish grey themes rather than the ones that look like lego/acid trip such as the default XP Luna one though lol.

    I wonder why Microsoft decided to call their theme Luna anyway it doesn't remind me of the moon at all maybe that was the color scheme they were going to originally go with, who knows?

    Yuck that just looks exactaly like XP's Luna one but it's black and has mostly weird bright colored start menus and close buttons to select from that look out place.

    It has a few dark ones though but I still don't like it, there's no chrome look to it just solid colours, looks like it was made in mspaint.
