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.
