..... find it funny how people are still designing visual themes for an OS that isn't even out yet.... to be used on an OS that's kinda past it's prime.

Would make more sense to see a theme like that for Vista..... which actually HAS that type of start menu button by default.... and also has Aero.

Thanks everyone. XP is not out yet and there are many people who are still using it. I created this theme after getting big demand for it. :)

so long ms is still using the nt technology, nt file system with the same nt memory constraints there are good reasons to use the more functional designs on an older and stable os, xp, and if vishal's theme gives more functionality as well as the modernized look, those reasons combined with the fact that vista and windows 7 cost money a user isn't willing to spend since their os is fine for their needs

first release os' from ms don't have a real good reputation for stability

I agree though, I hope vishal does the same for a vista makeover too

this is great stuff vishal

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
