Seven Remix XP Turns Your OS into a Windows 7 Lookalike

Microsoft may have put out the Beta version of Windows 7, Build 7000, a while back, and the media may be raving on and on about how good it is, but the simple truth of the matter is that a large number of PC users decided to stick with XP until the final version of Windows 7 comes out. Microsoft did say it will move from Beta to Release Candidate, but it did not provide a timetable for this, so until then, users that want to get their Windows XP to look like the next iteration of the Windows-based operating system will have to use Seven Remix XP.

Since the functionality of Windows 7 may be subject to change, what we are left with are the looks. Seven Remix XP does just that; it replaces icons, images, animations, makes changers to the Windows registry, installs skins, adds new sounds, styles, in a nutshell it changes every visual aspect that reminds you of Windows XP into a Windows 7 lookalike. It works with all versions of Windows XP and even Windows XP Tablet PC edition, but does not work with x64 versions of the Windows OS.


One of the cool new features of Windows 7 is that you can set it up to automatically change your wallpaper after a certain amount of time, or whenever you reboot the PC. That functionality is not available in Windows XP, but there are a couple of software products we’ve covered before that will accomplish the same task: Wallpaper Slideshow LT, Wallpaper Changer and Caledos Automatic Wallpaper Changer. If you are having trouble locating high quality images to use on your desktop, you can find some hints here.

If none of this is to your liking, then here are three software applications that will help you customize your desktop.
