I absolutely hate the new start menu and task bar.
To each his own I guess. I think the Windows 7 taskbar is a great improvement. But then I preferred Vista's as well. When I have to work on XP I feel hobbled.
Win XP had a 'Windows Classic' option. This one doesn't. How do I get back to the Windows XP interface?
Right click on the taskbar and use small icons. Then unpin any pinned applications. Then you can choose the "Windows Classic" theme under the Desktop \ Personalize section. It should now look and act a bit more like XP/Vista.
