Microsoft was one working on a Windows XP theme that made it look like Mac OS X. Check it out right here and tell us what you think about it.

Recently, Microsoft officially ended support for Windows XP to the general public, but along with certain government agencies, those running the Windows Embedded Industry variant of the OS will also continue to get updates until 2019. Formerly known as Windows Embedded POSReady, it's based on Windows XP Service Pack 3, and since the updates are perfectly compliant with the end user version of Windows XP, you too can benefit from these security fixes.
Security isn't the kind of thing you should play fast and loose with, and the same goes for security online. In a day and age where we manage almost all of our lives on the Internet, having a computer, phone or tablet that's potentially open to mischievous entities is far from ideal, but that's the position users of Internet Explorers find themselves in today.
After well over a decade of service, Microsoft has officially ended support for Windows XP, meaning that no further updates will be released from here on in.
An operating system upgrade is always worth having, in my opinion. Newer changes are almost always valuable, and the ability to utilize the latest technology on your smartphone, tablet, computer or laptop is a much-needed benefit. Similar holds true for Windows – the world’s most used PC operating system – where Windows 8 is the latest and greatest in the choices that you have. A lot of people have their issues with the operating system, but that isn’t stopping Microsoft from making constant updates to the OS, making it even better than before. I leave the debate of how useful Windows 8 is at that, and come to something that’s actually limited in the operating system: backward compatibility. Up until Windows 7, Microsoft allowed users to run applications that were compatible with, say, Windows XP, but that has been taken out in the latest iteration of Windows.
If you’re using a desktop computer and it is powered by Windows 7, then you and your computer are now, almost three years after its release in late 2009, part of the majority. Yes, according to the latest statistics, Windows 7 is the most popular desktop operating system today. Check out the details after the jump.
Of the many upcoming entries to the technology fray, Windows 8 is by far one of the most anticipated. The Consumer Preview dropped in February to critical acclaim, and although there's nothing particularly amiss with the current Windows 7, consumers are still pretty eager to sink their teeth into the Metro interface.
Sometimes someone comes up with a beautiful piece of tinkering that results in a thing of beauty. Something that either creates a need that we didn't know existed deep within our hearts or plugs a hole we've been trying to fill for years. Something magic.
