Windows 7: Making new taskbar like XP's taskbar?

Making new taskbar like XP's taskbar?

Is there a way in Windows 7 to make the taskbar show which windows are open, like XP and Vista all the time? I like the XP task bar better because it easier to see which windows (and how many windows) are open.

This picture might help better illustrate what I am talking about.
