Win 7 any edition; classic look & classic start menu?

Postby videobruce » Sun Feb 13, 2011 6:12 am

I'm sure I will get some 'flack' over this question, but is there any way to wind up with anything that looks like Windows classic look including the classic start menu with any flavor of Win7??

I really can't stand all of this artsy fartsy new look to the GUI. The classic layout including the classic start menu worked fine for 15 years, I see no need to change it. other than just another lame reason to sell more bloated software. :mad:

At least, like XP, give the user the option to revert back if he chooses! :rolleyes:
When not in use, turn off the juice.
Think of someone else instead of just yourself. There is far more to it than your utility bill

Here's how.... BTW, the default theme is Aero, themes etc. use up very little of the overall system and don't really bloat it...
I have been programming on computers since the ZX81.
I am an apprentice trained Electronics Engineer with qualifications to back it up.
I have been repairing computers since 1996.
Yet to some people I still know nothing...
