Give your Windows XP netbook a new look with XPize

XPizeIf you are tired with how old Windows XP is looking, especially with the imminent launch of Windows 7, then you may want to give XPize a look. It is a free application that allows you to update the look of XP with a new theme and user interface.

The team behind XPize run the software on a volunteer basis, along with similar software for Vista called Vize. As you can tell from the screenshot, the larger icons are well suited to netbook displays. You can check it for yourself here.

    Any idea if this eats away at memory and power?

    I haven’t tested it myself to be honest Igor. According to the site, it’s meant to have a low overhead, but don’t take my word for it!
