this is what i want:
an operating system that has similar look to XP, but uses way less memory

i imagine there are skins for windows 2000, that make it look like XP, with the blue start bar, etc..
skins use memory

I've seen back in 2002 that stores where selling machines with 128mb ram with windows xp, and the computer I have now originally only had 256mb ram and it ran ok with xp.

they run ok until you added a antivirus, firewall and spyware, which is required. then when you add program it become a hassle

Well new programs will slow down, but if you use antivirus like avg that uses very little memory it would be sort of alright
