They got rid of (somewhat) both those things because they were graphics hogs and did not bring much to the OS itself. In fact, some people have stated that they were part of the reason why Vista was so slow at first.Bring back Luna themes AND AERO theming.
You screwed up really bad with the Windows h8 interface, which looks retarded and a bit better than Windows 95, for F(r) U C K`s sake!
Except that they WERE listening to feedback from people like myself who loved and still do love the Modern UI interface. Personally, I am glad that they are not totally getting rid of the Modern UI interface but just allowing you to 'choose your own' interface.hope this time Microsoft listen to feedback before launching the new version of win, not after -.-!
