Default XP to Vista Converion

Has anybody ever tried it? Me and some freinds did, and the only reason i would have vista would be for the skins. the file is named VTP081 or something

Oh the Vista Transformation Pack? Yeah I tried it when I had XP, it worked good but it slowed things down... A LOT!

You should look at this: http://vistaosx.net

drumthrasher is missing the point lol.
the op wants a vista skin/transformation pack for xp.
ive personally tried it, and although it looked and worked great, it was a bugger to uninstall. this was a long time ago now and im sure its improved
