Bootleg of the MonthAbout

The desktop of Windows Mega 1.0

Windows Mega 1.0 is a bootleg Windows XP SP3 edition, which was created by the legendary Fouad Laz. It released on March 10, 2014, and was added to the archive on April 6, 2024.

The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO. It comes with AHCI storage drivers.

On the first boot of the OS, it will initially show a stock Windows XP installation, until you will get a screen where you will have the choice to pick 3 looks to use. There is Crystal Mega, Windows Mega and Mac Mega. After that, you will get the choice to install and pick the additional programs that come with this bootleg you want to use.

The Windows Mega look is heavily reliant on the Neon Skin Pack 2.0, which is responsible for the new theme and most of the visual enhancements this bootleg comes with. It has some programs included (excluding additional programs). The default wallpaper is picked at random, which goes for all of the other looks.
