  1. What style do you use in Windows XP?

    Classic Style
    XP Style

    Why did you choose that? What makes you think that the style you're using is better than the other one? Just curious, so I thought of this topic to get something going in this category.. !

    Classic Style because the XP style makes the bars look too big and the taskbar is also too big the way I have it set up (on the right side).

    I use custom themes on the four boxes I actually look at. The themes are light in size (the bars aren't obese or anything) and make the GUI much more pleasant to look at.

    Here is an example of some of the themes I use in XP:

    on my server and some of my other machines I either have no GUI or use the classic theme with everything disabled.

    Nice themes Soul!! Make them yourself? Better than the XP style I use. Anyone know any good sites to download custom themes such as Soul's please post back. Gracias.

    I modified them from themes I took off of www.themexp.org using a resource editor. Mostly only minor changes, like a fix for a winamp button, et cetera.

    Anyways... http://www.themexp.org

    Normally you will have to get StylesXP to use these themes, but I can provide you with a modified theme dll (yes it is legal) that will let you use any of those themes... just talk to me on IRC.
