    Someone had the guts to say it
    I like Windows 7 very much, just like I used to like Windows XP. As for Windows 8, I tried it very little and didn't like it much on desktop.

    Hmm ... you guys are tweaking my interest. I had Windows 7 ultimate edition I believe, running in a vm a couple of years ago, and it was ok. Maybe I'll stick it on my new drive for a another test spin natively on the bare metal. For me though, I have no need for it. It won't remain.

    Enjoy!

    I like the way you want to install the ambience theme.

    Windows 7 in a VM sucks compared to on bare metal. It was pretty buggy to me.

    I've run it in a VM at work for some time now for those things that I need Windows for. I haven't had much problem with it, but I run the "classic" theme. Seems like it was sluggish when I enabled Aero themes.

    I've been using it with the classic theme as well, but that might be cuz I've been running it as a headless VM and the server doesn't have a GUI, so no graphics drivers will fancy stuff are installed.

    I think Classic looks way better than that 'Windows Basic' or whatever it's called.

    Win7 is okay... but still has a lot of the same flaws it has had forever.
