Does anyone know about a Windows 8 theme which looks similar to the Windows Classic theme from Windows 7?

The high contrast themes are out of question since they change colours not only in Windows Explorer but also in IE which makes it unusable... I'm thinking about something close to the Classic AE theme for Windows 7:

Spoiler


Does there exist anything similar for Windows 8?

I would also be interested in this. A classic theme for Windows 8 that basically looks the same as the classic theme from every version of Windows since 2000.

The same person who created the theme listed above has been working on a Windows 8.1 version here:

It seems to still be in the works though.

I wouldn't go as far back as far as 2000, I'd go back even further to Windows 95. That's where the classic theme started.

True. But before Windows 2000, the "Classic Theme" was very different. It used a different font and different colours for everything.
