I've decided to finally give Windows 7 a chance, at least for a while, so I can learn about and get used to it, and maybe even learn to like it. However, much like I've made my XP install look and "feel" reminiscent of Windows 98 ("classic" settings), I would prefer to get 7 looking, acting and "feeling" as close to XP as possible. Searching for info on Google brings up a boatload of different pages. I figure plenty of people here have already figured out the best way to do what I'm asking, so I'd rather ask here than blindly comb through links on my own.
In addition, I'd like to know the general success rate of getting older 32-bit applications to run properly in 7. I currently rely on quite a few "legacy" applications, written for Windows 98 but that work 100% in XP. Am I going to be up against poor odds trying to get them to work properly in 7?
Finally (for the moment), I had to make use of a few tricks to let XP allow me to delete certain system files (i.e. screensavers, etc.) without them automatically being reloaded. I imagine such workarounds exist for 7; could someone point me in the right direction?
These are some of the things that are important for me to get a handle on before popping in that installation disc and having a go.
Any help appreciated, thanks.
