Looking at the Choices

You have a number of choices in terms of add-on software that enables you to manipulate the look and feel of the Windows XP interface. Each software choice puts a slightly different spin on how it modifies the Windows GUI and typically provides its own set of tools for managing themes, visual styles, and skins. As already mentioned, skinning software also provides the ability to modify the Windows boot and logon screens.

When I say modification, I mean that these products provide the ability to select alternative themes, visual styles, and boot and logon screens. I am not using modification in this case as a synonym for creation. We discuss creating visual styles and assembling skins in Chapters 7, 8, and 9.
