Retards have been predicting the doom of Microsoft after every release of everything they've ever built since Windows 95. Three years from now, you'll all be using Windows 8 and predicting their doom as they ramp up for Windows Eleventy.

/ Yes, subby, I mean you.

Meh. Of the gargantuan-sized software/hardware companies, outside of Google, Microsoft is currently the biggest innovator. You'll get over it.

Thanks for the tip on ClassicShell, I'd forgotten about it. Does make Windows 8 kinda redundant though if all everyone will do is roll it back to look and function like Windows 7.

Though I did once use a bunch of 3rd party apps, custom icons, and resource editors to make Windows 7 on my crappy netbook look just like Windows 95 for shiats and giggles.

The result (yes, that IS Windows 7!):

There are actually some pretty good ideas in Win 8 when you're freed up to explore them with Classic Shell. I love the new Task Manager. It tells you damned near everything about the machine.

Am I the only one shaking my head that you need to use a 3rd party tool to make Win7 look like Win2k? Shouldn't it be able to do that itself? Shouldn't the user just be able to turn that the hell on if they want? And I'm not singling Microsoft out here either, GNOME. KDE, Apple... perhaps... just perhaps... I liked the way it farking looked before!

You know, I used to feel that way.

Then I realized that if I wanted to interact with things that stayed the same, I probably shouldn't use computers.
