    supposedly it's still buried in there and you can reactivate it, in a since, using windowblinds or some similar add-on program. would like it if someone could confirm or deny

      It still exists, you just have to dig around online to find some workarounds and re-enable it because Microsoft a shit

      And not only is it broken but it will get even more broken with every new windows version
      Someday I'm going to learn X programming and make a window manager + desktop environment for linux that recreates old windows versions on an autistic pixel level

          Native Wayland you mean?

          In all seriousness whats the point of using wayland and could it theoretically support both

            It could, Wayland is still a X server.
            I used to be a Wayland hater, but once it matured and I started using it, it's better in literally every way.

            Been using KDE and Plasma with Wayland for over a year now on my ThinkPad, zero problems.

            Use wayland so that your autistic desktop environment will still be usable in 15 years when X is really dead dead and wayland is about to be replaced with something else and it will be 10 more years until wayland is dead dead

            Ok, also any advice on how to get started and what to use for drawing? I've never had any experience with low level windowing or software rendering, just SDL2 for some games

      Is this a native theme still in Windows 10 or an external one you've added with tweaks?

      Look how fricked up it already is just trying to pose it for a screenshot. You just know it will be shitting the bed constantly because trying to get the classic theme in shartblows 10 is a bunch of hacks layered on top of an already shit OS

      No the old UI is disabled for religious reasons. The most important and central tenet of modern UI design is that it must be as hideous and unusable as possible. The get off on ruining lives. They can't have you using the old UI and escaping their latest creation.

    no one to maintain it because maintaining niche stuff costs money, no maintenance = vulnerabilities = risk so they just remove it outright

    My suspicion as to why they so frequently change the UI is that they simply lost the knowledge on how to work with the old UIs. The best they can do is disable or layer new shit on top of the old. The best example of this is the new right click menu having a button to open the old right menu in 11. They don't know how to add new features to the old one and they don't know how to bring old features to the new one.

    I don't know, it's honestly a tragedy. It would make using windows so much more bearable.

    It's still possible to use on 10 and even 11. Check out these forums if you want to get into it: https://winclassic.net/

    Or you can just be lazy about it like me and just use Windowblinds, Retrobar, and Openshell.

    They didn't really, it's still there. The problem is a lot of programs rely on services provided with the DWM, and don't work if it's not running.
