Thank god for downloadable apps that can leave you trapped in the past. Hooray for celebrating a refusal to learn, grow, adapt and move forward. Who needs to evolve? It's not like anything in the world changes, after all.

You can't. You just have to educate those who understand that Life IS Change, and let the rest of them die off. The species is better off that way.

Not true
Windows 8 got alot done under the hood, if you are the average person you would get used to press windows + I to reboot, shutdown or access settings. I would say Win 8 is even better than win 7, at least on my middle spec laptop

The Windows 7 UI is not 15 years old. Similar != Same. It doesn't suprise me that someone who would say that is fine with a Metro desktop, though

yes it is, it might have a new coat of paint on it every now and then but essentially Win 7 has used the same UI since Win 95

Look, you clearly don't want to listen and you seem to have a warped sense of reality...

Win95 - Win7 UI

Desktop, Icons, taskbar, start menu, tool bars. = function and purpose the same (bar fancy looks)

Widgets are not I suppose as they are apart of Aero, however that level of development wasn't available 15 years ago, but I could make an HTML program to do the same thing and have that set as my desktop on 9x desktops, so function could be the same, bar looks.
