You can even have a alternative Vista drive Icon! It's not as high tech as the vista version, but pretty nice done!

Live Window previews

Just like in Vista, live thumbnail previews of Windows when hovered over in taskbar. Download Visual Task Tips here.

Your guide is awesome !!!
do you try xentient thumbnails? is a utility for replacing image icons with thumbnails.
and there is others apps that make xp more like vista...
Medotate
Yz´shadow
Winflip (instead of shock aero 3d)
fading taskbar or alpha xp lite instead of glass2k (nice effect in the taskbar)
Vista rainbar (best side bar)
And the recent lebendig for the windows animations

If you you use a transformation pack, (i used the Seven Remix XP v2.3.1.225 by Niwrad) doesn't it already do the uxtheme.dll patching for you? or do i still have to apply the patch myself and what are a list of compatible themes with the Seven Remix XP v2.3.1.225 by Niwrad? has any one used the seven remix pack? So far I like it. some other things i wanted to do is apply the percentage to be displayed next to the vista icon, not just the lil bar, but both. Is there a way to do that? and are there any glass aero skins i can use with this transformation pack i chose? thanks for the help everyone, i have to admit this probably the most useful forum i found on the whole subject of xp to vista or WinSeven customization
