    I voted linux then realized it was Windows because of AIM. I'm pretty sure there isn't another AIM client that has those f***ing ads and shyte. Or, does the client look the same for other OSes? I've used linux a little and all the clients I tried look nothing like that.

    [edit]
    ps, I edited out the ads and other useless menus and such from my AIM

    If you read my full post, you'd realize that my comment was directed at linuxdude, not the OP.

    Actually you don't need WindowBlinds or any other lame shareware program. WindowsXP has inbuild theme support. All you need to do is either generate a valid checksum for your theme (so XP recognizes it as a "proper Microsoft theme"), or get a hacked ui-dll (so that stupid theme manager shuts up and displays all your themes as it is supposed to do).
    Then you can use one of those countless native XP themes available on the net.

    ThemeXP.org is a good source, although they claim you need their theming tool to use their visual styles ("themes"). Can't really blame them for trying to make money with an application nobody really needs. Still a lot better than trying to make money with stuff nobody *wants*

    Anyways, my information might be a bit outdated. I haven't booted Windows for a while now.....

    I think you forgot to put on your flame-retardant suit.
