Windows A lot of our readers are still happily using Windows XP - 36% of our users use XP, 12% Vista, and 6% Windows 7. While Windows XP is showing its age in a lot of areas, there is at least something you can do to prettify the operating system at minimal cost. In Windows XP, and to a lesser extent Windows Vista, there are still a lot of old-style icons and graphics that should be updated to more modern variants. There are free tools that do just this (thanks to IStartedSomething).

Is there an estimate of how many Win2k users there are out there? For instance, there's a project called Vistpack that changes the icons, etc. of Win2k, and there's a project called SmoothText that adds something like ClearType to it and is starting to support skinning.
