Going back to XP - Does W7 have an xp shell/UI? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • After four solid weeks of torturing myself trying to work out what advantages are in W7, I give up. The past weekend was spent trying to organize photos in file manager, and that was the final straw and tonight I go back to good ol' xp. I tried my hardest to like W7 and came up empty-handed. So I'm curious if I'm the only one that finds it truly uninspiring and in the case of the file manager truly hates it. But the bigger question is that if I'm forced to eventually move off of xp will there be an xp "shell"/UI available so that W7 is invisible to me?

  • I would doubt it.  Your only choice will most likely be either use the classic style, or use a 3rd party theme solution.  :)

  • True dat, hopefully someone will come up with something. I'm proud of myself that I actually lasted four weeks longer than I did with vista and who knows how long MS may actually support xp for. fingers crossed.
