I can't believe they have two UI themes anyway. Why not stick with the Aero theme and sell more video cards? (But then, XP has two UI themes, too: classic and that other nasty thing.)

Is it just me, or does anybody else think that all of the themes that MS has come up with, from XP on, are ugly, childish, or just plain stupid?

I hope for the sake of my eyes that they will always include the classic 9x look in future versions of Windows. Taking that away would send me running at top speed for a Windows alternative.

Hey App -  Most people think that too... they're just afraid to say so.  :P

I actually enjoy the new windows GUI's, but am glad that microsoft left in the classic view for users who do not like the new colors. I tend to use the newer gui more as i find it more appealing.
