DAE use the Windows Classic theme on Windows 7?

All the professors at my college use it. It's basic.

No because Aero really doesn't seem to eat too much of my resources. Besides that, Aero seems like it runs faster on my system, even if it is just placebo.

interesting

I turn off the glass effect, since I think text on transparent background is bad. I don't turn off aero, though.

Yes.

First thing I do on any new Windows install is remove all the bloat GUI shit. Like, oh boy I get to see my window being minimized! It's all bullshit propaganda.

And classic looks better.

Did you know that Windows 8 has a much better optimised UI and also that far less resources are in use while idling? I'd hazard a guess at saying the full W8 UI is faster than W7 with classic theme.

It's not placebo. By default, Windows Classic Theme disables GPU acceleration, modern font rendering, and a bunch of other stuff. Now if you re-enable everything but the Aero visual styles, then you get the best of both worlds.

How?

I just started an office job for a bank, looking at xort codes all day, that uses XP but has them all set to classic, just to make it all even more grey

I checked the specs, a faster processor than mine and 4 gigs of ram but they still want it to feel like 97
