Asus EeePC back… with Windows XP
Well, as mentioned in an earlier post, my Asus EeePC 1005HA’s HDD had died… So I sent my netbook to Asus and they got me a new hard drive and a new keyboard (the tab key had “jumped” from the last keyboard xD) – and of course, my OS changed to this netbook’s default one – Windows XP.
I decided to have a little fun before installing Arch and forgetting about Windows – so I thought about theming my Windows XP to look like Ubuntu or even a random linux distro which looked good. However I only found ancient linux themes, and they were all ugly.
So I thought – well, I don’t want Windows to look like Windows but the Linux themes are ugly as hell.. Hmm… Oh, I got it – Mac OS X.
And that was easy as hell – just had to find a Mac theme I liked and then… right, and then what? How the hell can a person install themes in Windows?..
So all one has to do is patch a dll file and install the theme – simple right?
Right… Still prefer Linux anytime though. All the unnecessary downloads I did just to manage to install a theme before I figured out what I had to do exactly… Linux is better anytime :)
Oh well, anyway… This is my desktop right now, which won’t last long because I’m thinking of having a Linux/ Mac dual boot and get rid of Windows for good… Mac can cover my proprietary needs like using Microsoft Office and stuff… and has Keynote and a bunch of other cool stuff to play around if I don’t feel like Linux one day xD
