Well, I'm fairly sure a Google Image search for Bliss, etc. would be useful to you, yoga. Unfortunately there are only 1024x768 versions, because that was the industrial standard in 2003.
I'm sure you can find tons of demake graphical themes for the Win 7, you might need to use graphical theme managers, but if you that determined that can't be a problem.
No need to manually do anything, twillight.

Full themes can be problematic, but if you find what piece matches what piece, you can manually add in the content I bet.

Merci, dear twillight,

I will tell my friend Your advice.

But he is so clumsy that i do not believe he will follow correctly this matter.
Anyway i completed my promise to find the info about his problem.
Moreover i think that this is Not problem at all.

The real problem is to kill bad Frank with a simple stone in the hand.

Thanks a lot, dear Tracker.

I know that when i want to drink clear water from the root the right way is to ask The Three Musketeers from Hungary.

They are T,H,T.
(not Atos, Portos and Aramis).

I noticed its fast but i dont like it. It hasn't been out long enough really for me to say much about it but after its been out for a while we'll know the good, bad and ugly. I had it on this laptop as a second operating system but just recently deleted it cos the time ran out for it. Wonder how it will be with game compatibility.

Windows 8 introduces a new style of application, Windows Store apps. According to Microsoft developer Jensen Harris, these apps are to be optimized for touchscreen environments and will be more specialized than current desktop applications. Apps can run either in a full-screen mode, or be snapped to the side of a screen.

All those fancy features etc.

I can't afford the upgrade, so maybe I missed something: did they finally include with Vista/7/8 such useful functions as:

- mass file rename (various ways to renumber/trim filenames etc.)
- search for identical files (CRC)

...or do I still have to resort to external applications, just like in WinXP days?

They included "tag search" and somewhat "text search", so you can find info by headers inside mp3 tags and such.

Mass file manipulation? Never. It's not file system, it's _user-friendly_ system, remember? You don't need to know what "file" is it!

(In win8 there is "genius" move with tiles - you cannot see files here at all. You can see only program name, set where windows decided to put it - in Games, Software or something. You can move it where you want it, but file? What file?)

Searching by metadata or even full content (for some formats such as plain text, Word, Excel) was already present in earlier versions, even XP I think.

Spectre's right about power features. But actually for that kind of thing there's PowerShell (which is an optional Windows update):
http://www.microsoft.com/powershell

And as long as they continue providing good support for 3rd party developers... That's been the key to Windows' success since version 1.0. Of course other OSes have to come with more utilities built-in, and yet you can't find as many as for Windows.

Windows 8 for PC is different from the mobile version--actually it includes that (apps and tile start menu) on top of a normal 6.x Windows. The only difference is the tile start menu, which IMO is a big usability improvement over the traditional cascade one (and that you can run "Win RT" apps, as well as normal Windows desktop programs).

The tiles are just shortcuts located in the same exact paths as the start menu shortcuts in previous Windows versions. Both apps and desktop programs create tiles, the latter when they would create start menu shortcuts in previous versions. Of course in mobile Win8 it's different, but so's in Android or iOS.
