Here is a new theme for Windows XP and 2003 users. Its called "Embedded" theme. Its an official Microsoft theme so you'll not need to patch anything. You can apply it without any problem.

Posted Image

This theme has been taken from "Windows Embedded Standard CTP Refresh" and works perfectly in Windows XP and 2003.

Download following ZIP file, extract it and run the .EXE file. After that you can apply the theme from Desktop Properties. A sweet wallpaper is also included in the pack.

What is Windows Embedded Standard CTP Refresh?



Hi all,



The Windows Embedded Standard product team has been hard at work on preparing a refresh of the Windows Embedded Standard Community Technology Preview (CTP) for all of our dedicated testers out there! This new download is now available on the Windows Embedded Standard Connect page: https://connect.micr...windowsembedded. The CTP Refresh includes an improved setup experience and migration support from previous versions of Windows XP Embedded. Additionally, it now includes .NET 3.5, additional device drivers, System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) Client Prereq Macro, and various other updates based on direct customer feedback.



We also posted a CTP of Service Pack 3 (SP3) for Windows XP Embedded. This is a rollup of hot fixes and security updates Microsoft has released since the RTM of Service Pack 2. SP3 also includes select out-of-band features and enhancements. SP3 provides a new baseline for customers deploying Windows XP Embedded.



Try out these new downloads and let us know what you think!

Hope vista vill get some official themes soon :D

I was wondering what it was aswell. If Vista does get some new themes, we'll probably have to pay for them. Oh, and if Microsoft is reading this, don't get any ideas.
Theme looks good though.

Hey Vishal, is it just me, or is the original news source down? I saw the link on your site (go there daily, BTW) and i got in to the forum once, then it went dead... you think MS put a stop to it?
