There are a lot of Windows XP users who simply adore the way Vista looks, and many of them have already tried to install themes and all kinds of customizations to get closer to that shiny interface. A better solution comes from Universal Vista Inspirat Brico Pack Ultimate 2, an entire pack of improvements that modifies most interface elements of Windows XP to bring them in line with those of Vista.
We've seen similar packs in the past too, but most of them did nothing good and sometimes every damaged the operating system, modifying a bunch of vital system files.
Universal Vista Inspirat Brico Pack Ultimate 2 however can make Windows XP look modern and stylish without affecting too much the computer performance. It is easy on resources and does the whole job after creating a System Restore point, which basically means that in case of emergency, users can revert the installation and go back to the initial settings.
It changes almost everything, including the taskbar, which now features a transparency option just like the one in Vista, the titlebar, the desktop icons and even the Start button. Plus, it adds a dock, similar to the one developed by Apple for Mac OS X, that lets users launch applications with a single click.
During our testing, we had no problem with it but we've heard a lot of people complaining that you can't uninstall it without damaging Windows, so it's probably better to use System Restore to get rid of the pack. Overall however, if you're using Windows XP and got rid of the interface, you might want to give Universal Vista Inspirat Brico Pack Ultimate 2 a try.
