Hi,

For some time i'v been using windowblinds to style my XP, but i'm tired of the extra resources it eats up, and i know that you can patch XP so you can custom styles, however, does anyone know a good source to browse/download styles that make it look like Longhorn/Vista ?

Modern Windowblinds doesn't really take that many resources. The best place to look for XP Visual Styles is probably DeviantArt in this category

However, XP msstyles have a number of limitations, including no transparency support.

I like trueTransparency with jadaero theme, and with longhorn 4067 msstyles theme.

Browsing deviantart is a very good way to find msstyles, vista-esque or otherwise. I used VistaCG as a theme for a little while.

It's got two styles, one kinda uncanny one, and one quite accurate to RTM.
