I think the classic UI in Windows 2000 is actually very clean and nice. But in Vista and especially 7, I like Aero better. One main reason for me is that it allows the GPU to handle drawing to the screen and leaves the CPU to handle other stuff. With Aero off, that functionality is returned to the CPU like in older versions of Windows.
Yeah, I agree with you. The classic UI on Windows 2000 is very nice and consistent, imo, unlike the classic UI in Vista and Windows 7. However, I prefer Aero for its looks, as well as the reason devHead stated.
