SevenMizer is a free software which you can use in order to make Windows XP look like Windows 7, but only when it comes to interface, the themes. Apart from Windows XP, you can even transform Server 2003 or MCE machine and make them look like Windows 7. We are of course not talking about the underlying functionality. When you install this free software only the appearance will be changed to match the one of Window 7.
Image above shows us Start Menu of Windows XP after it has been converted to Window 7 style. Notice that when it comes to appearance the menu as well as the panel down below are practically identical to Windows 7, but there are small differences. Look at the menu, All Programs are opened on the side, instead of collapsing within the left portion of the Start Menu. Same thing is true for pretty much every other aspect of the system.
