Windows 3.11 XP by mrrste Windows 3.11 XP by mrrste
Please, for the love of God, forgive me for this lol. This is purely for fun

=PoulNyrup made a comment that Windows 3.11 reminded him of the good old days and thought a skin based on it would be cool. This is the result of me listening to him lol

Windows 3.11 never had a close button or a taskbar so I have created them as though they were originally with it and have tried to replicate every little quirk of an old OS for a new OS. It might look like a simple skin but this was actually quite challenging for some strange reason :omg:

I've even tried to make the preview in the same style.

This is the Windowblind for Windows XP. Vista version can be found here [link]

Who needs Aero, per pixel and png's, 16 bit retro revival FTW :lol:

I tried 3.1 on Virtual PC. Wasn't too shabby, but not as good as XP.

Windows 3.1 is revolutionary but... for it's time. There no way to compare Windows 3.1 and Windows XP. No way!

I liked Windows 3.1 a lot. I miss Reversi. :(

Brilliant and Unique Visual Styles.

Some quirks are present, but nothing that will sabotage the user's experience.

As htfcuddles said, though, converting it to .msstyles format would make it even better for those not willing to purchase or go through the process of hacking WindowBlinds!

A big thumbs up for effort!

You said "Who needs Areo,...". But XP doesn't have areo, it has a theme called Luna. You might want to fix that.

Just as curiosity: There's any way to port this skin to the native .msstyles format used by XP?
