Most netbook consumers using Windows XP assume that the old-school look is just part of the sacrifice you take in exchange for low prices when you buy a netbook. Luckily, that’s an uninvestigated assumption that needs some correction.
XPize is a project run by volunteer developers, designed to update the user interface of Windows XP to give it a newer look. Its visual bells and whistles make the OS look a lot better, which may appeal to the vast number of XP-using netbook users out there.
Vize is also available if you want to touch up Vista, and a Sevenize getup is planned after the release of Windows 7. Check it out!
