Quick history lesson: Over the past several years, I've been learning more and more about how to make Win Vista/7/8/10 suck less: how to gain ownership of the "Program Files" directories, how to install and use Classic Shell, that sort of thing. I eventually got Win7 to the point of being relatively painless to use, and functioning almost identically to XP except for the lack of animated wallpapers. Nowadays, despite having an XP partition, I spend most of my time in Win7.\n\nAnyway, I've gotten quite used to the heavily modified Aero themes I'm running (black on my laptop, ice blue on my desktop). When I switch back to my XP partition, The Luna theme and themes which are derived from it, like Embedded, look kind of... ass. Title bars and the taskbar still look as good as ever, but the Start menu looks unfinished. The background color is a pure stark white, and there's no bevel like the Classic theme has, nor is there a colored border like Aero and Metro have. The background color can be fixed easily enough in the advanced settings (color values 212, 208, 200 should get you the perfect shade of gray) but I can't fix the lack of a border or bevel. It just looks lazy and makes me want to switch to the Classic theme. I can't believe I never noticed this before.\n\nHowever, this is a slightly unfair comparison, because I'm using Classic Shell to get Win7 to look good and I'm not using any third-party software to make XP look better.
