    Hi all. I want to know if there is a way to change the bootscreens, logon/logoff screens, theme etc. to make it look EXACTLY like XP in Windows 7? I like Windows 7's design but I like the look of XP.

    Yes, and all food you like tastes like shit. Also blondes are better than brunettes, etc.

    He means it's just a matter of opinion, I like Luna too, but I do prefer Aero

    Of course it is. :|

    Unless this is one of those silly "don't state your opinions as fact" things, as though it actually matters.

    but that would be ridiculous and I'm sure it's something deeper than that.

    Haha don't rage. I do like Windows 7, but Windows XP was the first computer I had. I appreciate the help and please don't rage.

    I also don't think that you should. Give W7's stock look a chance, you're gonna like it a lot.

    The problem is that he's asking for an exact replica, and that's just not gonna happen.

    Someone asked "I want help to do this." You came in and said, "The thing you want looks like shit," and contributed nothing to the topic.
    gparent called you out on it.
    Who is being more ridiculous?

    I was ridiculous for making such a poorly worded post.
    gparent was ridiculous for being overly-sensitive to it.
    You're being ridiculous for stretching it out.

    The OP is the only one who doesn't seem to mind, hilariously.

    Replying once in a calm manner is being overly sensitive now? I do agree that you and the other posters are being overly sensitive about the issue, considering how many posts you guys made about something I literally do not care about... but me? no. I had already forgotten about this thread.

    if you don't care, and had already forgotten of all this, why do you get back in here and post yet another stretch to the discussion?

    If you don't mind, my PM inbox is not private so feel free to continue this discussion where it belongs if you want (seeing how your post is worse than what you are querying me about).

    A few years back in high school, I spent a lot of time shifting between Windows 7 at home and Windows XP at school in ROTC.

    If you actually yearn for the heady days of XP's take on Explorer, you're fucking crazy.

    I liked Royale over the dated-looking Luna theme, but I liked the Royale Nior and Zune themes even more.
