When I wrote a review about Q4OS last year I was emailed about a package called XPQ4 which makes it possible to make Q4OS look like other versions of Windows such as Windows XP.
I therefore set about reviewing XPQ4 and the results were very good indeed.
Shortly after I had posted my review of the latest version of Q4OS I received another email asking me to take another look of XPQ4 because there had been a number of updates.
If you wish to use a Linux operating system but you want it to look like Windows then XPQ4 is definitely what you are looking for.
How To Get XPQ4
You can get XPQ4 from http://xpq4.sourceforge.net/
There are 2 versions of XPQ4 available:
The full version uses proprietary images and icons etc whereas the free version does not. Neither will cost you any money.
The webpage has installation instructions but basically all you have to do is this:
- When the license agreement appears make sure the "I Agree" checkbox is ticked and click "Install".
The User Interface
An icon for XPQ4 will appear on the desktop and when clicked the above screen will be displayed.
You can choose between 6 themes:
- Windows 2000
- Windows XP classic
- Windows XP luna
- Windows 7
- Windows 8
- Windows 10
The screenshots basically speak for themselves:
