    That's purely a matter of opinion, personally I would say don't install it as it's pointless.

    I have a bad exprience with trying to decorate my WinXP. I figured the best thing is to just stay with the casual theme (or move to Win7).

    I've got a better idea. It's a bit less complicated, more reliable, and you actually end up having windows 7.

    Wanna hear it?

    Go ahead. Back when I had XP I installed one of those themes. They are pretty decent.

    I'm using a Windows 7 Theme on my XP because I can't afford Windows 7. I also have a few other themes.

    Why don't you just install Windows 7? Then again, I guess I can't offer any suggestions as I don't theme anything. Stock installs ftw.

    You could get the OEM copy, it's a bit less expensive for some reason(it comes with just the disc in a plastic DVD case w/ a little booklet, no fancy box or packaging).

    It's a bit less expensive because you get ZERO support and the version that you buy is THE ONLY version on the disk. Don't ever buy OEM, I got screwed the last time I did that (XP Home SP3, had an epic fail, went to get support from Microsoft and it said "Your version of Windows appears to be an OEM version. Microsoft does not provide support for OEM versions of Windows. Please contact your OEM to receive support."

    Like this thread is a perfect opportunity to get some lulz from the OP and yet FP always takes these kinds of threads seriously.

    Get a sense of humor people. I mean, the OP didn't even put a space after his periods.

    No you shouldn't. What you should do is buy Windows 7 Ultimate.

    How poor do you have to be to the extent where you can't pay for a $80 operating system? Seriously.

    "Don't ever buy OEM", what?

    There no reason to ever buy anything except the OEM version of Windows. Microsoft support is useless anyway. Search for solutions to your problems yourself, that's what Google is for. Even if you plan on upgrading hardware you can call MS to get your key working again should it start bitching.

    This was for my parents, who barely know how to use the internet. I'd googled the problem already and found nothing on it, so I resorted (or tried to resort to) Microsoft support, only to get that. I'd prefer to have a backup like that then nothing at all.

    But that's just me.

    If it hinders you in anyway in XP, then I would say NEGOTIVO.

    So wait, you want a 10 year old operating system to look like one that came out last year? You need to get your brain checked, then throw out your computer.

    Keep in mind, that if the 99 in his name means what I think it does, he's only just older than Windows XP

    With RAM and everything...
