  1. My computer at work runs on Windows XP and I'd like to really make it my own, I seem to only really be able to change the colour scheme on the XP theme between three colours, blue, olive green and silver, I'm using silver now.

If so that's a bit gay, you can buy the full version but I'm not spending $20 just to change the theme on my desktop.
