What did I expect to get from this project? A WinXP like look to my Windows 7. Many seemed to advertise this project just like that. What did I get instead? Ugliest UI decorations in the world and to get those blows and whistles, I was forced to sacrifice a lot and thanks to that, it then got even worse. There's no real comfort of WinXP. This project does not give the original XP look and feel. Verdict? People should carefully think if what they say is really true before advertising anything, especially if it's freeware they are advertising as usually false advertising is used for commercial products. People who give 5 stars and just say: "It installs and it works!", well I think we need a higher discipline here at SF to prevent misinforming and abuse of power.
