Windows XP Ganja Edition is a bootleg Windows XP SP3 edition, which was created by cropptown89 (also known as Ziomek). It released on November 1, 2009, and was added to the archive on December 9, 2021.


The bootleg is a modified Windows XP SP3 ISO, which comes with DriverPacks LAN/WLAN/Chipset and mass storage drivers, along with many updates integrated. It is slightly stripped down.

It comes with a completely new look, featuring ganja, rasta, weed, and everything inbetween! ...Along with a icon set, a funky-looking wallpaper, and free ganja skins in the WEJDZ TU folder, among many other things.

Anyhow, it is unattended and preactivated. The ISO was made using nLite on Windows XP SP3.
