Where do I find all that stuff that makes Win98 look like XP?

I can't remember the adress now but browse around www.download.com and see what you can come up with...

Well, I already new about WindowBlinds (www.windowblinds.net) but I thought I remembered a website article that listed many other programs to compliment WindowBlinds and somebody had once listed it here.

I'm pretty sure that the people who make WindowBlinds make a ton of other programs that compliment it. Search around on their website - i believe they have a suite. I dont know if it can be completely like XP, cuz of Xp's new stuff.. (transparency), but it should come close.

StarDock - the makers of WindowBlinds

ObjectDesktop is da bomb. It makes Windows almost as good as Linux. :P

But I still prefer good ol' KDE, and BlackBox, and Enlightenment, and AfterStep, and all the rest...

If you have Win2K, then y ou can get transparencies like XP. But 98 can't. :(

And for the Mac, there's Kaleidoscope and PowerWindows - www.kaleidoscope.com

Eagle try this. (http://www.wincustomize.com/skins.asp?SkinID=1366&library=1&file=winxpluna.wba&filesize=171497)

tell me if it works. ive never tried it because i think WindowBlinds is a poor piece of software (it and zonealarm are the only programs capable of crashing my rock solid winxp pro)

Thanks PJ64er, I tried Stardock.net and couldn't find a thing that looked like XP.

It works great except the takbar isn't the right color :(

Nope, you need ObjectBar for that. :P

And PJ64er, that's rather odd, because I think WindowBlinds is the only piece of software I've never had crash on me.

Some of the skins can change the taskbar. Look at my screenies in the desktop thread. (toward the end there are two of them showing desktop skins)

stardocks take a few skins from the skin community sites. go to these sites, such as www.wincustomize.com (where i got ur skin), to get the good ones.
