Pretty windows?

So the news on the street is that Microsoft has released a theme for windows XP called Energy Bliss or Royale. It is based on the new skin for Windows Media Player 10, and is meant only for Windows XP Tablet Edition.

Well, we'll have none of that! The official download is just a self extracting .ZIP with a fancy interface, which also dies if you aren't running Tablet Edition. With WinZIP, WinRAR or any other similar tool, extract it to any new directory. Take the "royale.theme" file and put it in the "c:\windows\resources\themes\" directory. Inside that directory make one named "Royale" and put all the other files that you extracted into this directory you just made. Now go to display properties, themes, and it should show up right in the list. It's quite flashy. I'm not sure if I'll stick or not, the gradients for the task bar and window titles seem very harsh.
