Aside from Metro, is Windows 7 better than Windows 8 in any way?

This is more of a personal preference but the Windows 8 Aero theme is ugly. It makes the desktop look cheap, like a Windows 95 clone or something. Aero Glass in Vista/7 is much nicer with its drop shadows, smoothed edges and transparencies. Default file associations for 8 make things open in Metro regardless if your in Metro or Desktop mode. They changed the classic file menu in file explorer to an Office style Ribbon which annoys people.

Aside from the missing start menu that I do occasionally still use that was all I can recall from the short time I had 8 installed (a few weeks). As much hate as 8 gets (and deserves) most of it is fixable with 3rd party programs. Can't fix it being beaten with the ugly stick yet though.
