How about the start menu? Is it one a la XP or Vista's classic style? The one I have seen so far is only a quasi classic style. If it is truly classic style, I would like to know how to do it.

My previous post was in response to copernicus' post. I prefer XP only in its certain aspects(quick launch, no-scroll start menu) to Windows 7.
