Just look to some previous threads at this forum PC section, and you find lots of messages confirming tools that do give "old fashioned" desktop look.

Thanks! I did and it seems people are going out of their way to make the 8 behave like the 7. Maybe there is an advantage to get 8 and then make it look like 7. But my intuition says going 7 in the first place is the better option.

I came from Win XP, so it is an advantage. If you come from Win7, there is no or only slightly advantage. If you already have Win7, stick with it. If you are building a total new PC you can have advantages if you take time for best install options. (E.g. installing W8 in "UEFI"-mode to have set HD drives in GUID Partition Table (GPT), so you can use boot-able drives over 2 Tb storage size).

Thanks, that sounds fabulous even though I have no idea what it means. I currently have an aging Vista 64-bit system with 8 gigs of RAM and want a much faster machine.
