Better looking OS

10 posts in this topic

okay, i want to have a better looking OS, but there are some rules it must adhear to.

*It must install over xp, without uninstalling xp

*it must run on less than 1gb ram

*it must not be linux

*it must look good, and have functionality

so im thinking, something that looks like a netbook OS, but runs like a fullscreen browser. it has access to all my files and programs and has it all neatly presented.

anyone know of such a thing?

ChromeOS or Android? Why a "must not be Linux" restriction? That pretty much excludes the best options for what you're looking for.

Look at VirtualBox if you want to run another operating system within Windows. Take note, this will be slow as all hell if you don't have a gig of RAM.

If you are looking for something to change the way Windows looks, you are looking for a shell replacement. I use SharepEnviro for one of my laptops.

Here's some shell replacements to check out:

inferno, my friend. It's got the shady-ish window decoration ALL over the X's. Full color tetris-blocks and 24-bit pictures. It's got all that shit, it even has it's own web-browser. Did somebody say wikipedia? Yeah, I thought so. You want to know how much heap you got? Don't worry Inferno's got you covered, a few clicks away and BAM! You got memory indicator bars all up on your screen! Inferno's is off the hook, man. Best of all you can run it over your os. What's that?! you heard me, you can run your os on your os. That shit's crazy
