Dear all,

Could we use this skin freely or we have to buy it.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Personally, I think it was a huge mistake to call this style "Windows XP Style". It confuses the hell out of XP because unfortunately, XP already has a built-in style called "Windows XP Style". On my PC I can only get this (WindowBlinds) style to work properly by a very convoluted mixture of using WindowBlinds in conjunction with XP's Display Settings dialog. I'll keep perservering because I like the idea of having skinnable apps within a GUI that looks like plain old standard XP - but it's difficult to make this style work properly and not conflict with the built-in XP style of the same name.

An excellent effort - but this isn't one for the faint-hearted!!

Windows XP Style is the BEST man, for the User's that do NOT understand why YOU would Use this skin : You can Put the computer in to "Windows Classic" Theme, That then let's you have more RAM and CPU to play with, then you can go back to Windows Blinds, and Apply this theme, (So NOW you have more Ram/CPU to use with the look of Windows XP) SignedAdam... What'z Not to understand Now!

Believe it or not, after so many years, I find this skin useful even in Windows 7. I am to bring to completion a technical manual containing screen grabs from Windows XP. This means my own screen grabs must look consistent, which would require me either to use a Windows XP Virtual Machine (slow and inconvenient!) or this skin here! Thank you MessiahWWKD!

You need to download WindowBlinds.  Once you have WindowBlinds installed then you can double click this theme from your desktop, and it will install into WindowBlinds.

If you have Windows XP, what's the point of this skin? However, if you have Windows Vista or 7 and you miss the XP Luna theme, it'd be perfect.

People complaining about this are doing so because this theme was created in 2003, when XP was modern already. Now thanks to Windowblind's backwards compatibility, this theme works great on later versions of Windows.

Now, in 2019, it's quite fun to have that throwback !

2002, roughly 17 years ago. Feels like Win10 is there since a month or two
