Softpedia Editor's Review for Seven Remix XP
A program designed to beautify the Window XP GUI
Written by Giorgiana Arghire on August 13th, 2012
Although a lot of Windows users still run XP, it does not mean that they do not want to add a little color to their PC or customize its looks. Since Windows 7 is the OS that threw everyone aback with its revamped appearance, XP users might like get a taste of it and try Seven Remix XP.
It needs to be mentioned from the beginning that attention is required when installing this software as it features some bundled additional components that need to be unchecked to prevent any changes to the host PC.
After installing this app, a PC restart is requested in order to apply the OS modifications. The interface is considerably changed, since the XP desktop icons and window style are replaced with some that resemble Windows 7.
It might take some time adjusting to the new look since Windows Explorer and Start Menu have been updated to match the ones on Windows 7, along with the taskbar and the context menu.
Seven Remix XP allows users to choose an image that will be used as their account picture and that can be used to easily identify accounts, when there are several ones created on the same PC.
XP users can even choose a new color scheme that matches their newly-upgraded OS, and apply different styles until the output truly satisfies them.
It might not be the actual Windows 7, but it looks as if it were. It can be installed to see if XP should really be renounced at, and replaced by a new OS. If the results of Seven Remix XP are not pleasing enough, at least it is a fun way to pass the time.
