Windows 7: New Windows boring, release "classic" Windows

New Windows boring, release "classic" Windows

Hello, as you have guessed I am new here and I have been using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit for over a year. I guess I am feeling memories, but it's been getting kind of dry and boring recently. Will or can Microsoft ever release a "classic" Windows-like OS in the future?

Welcome to Seven forums Seaners. Well windows 8 will look more like a cell phone.. Windows 8 Developer Preview release - Page 23 - Windows 8 Forums
You can use the Windows classic theme though, it looks a bit like Win 98.

Hello Seaners, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I'm not sure how "classic" you want it, but Windows 7 does have a Windows Classic theme that you could use that may help.

In addition, the free program Classic Shell may help with the nostalgia a bit more.

Hope this helps,
