I have put a lot of reg hacking into my current copy of win 7 that will not work on the win 8 gui, I dont want to have learn all the new reg additions to win 8 to be able to customize the interface the way I want it to be, so I will not be swithing to the Tablet OS


What reg hacks are you using for windows 7?

a lot, most now are done by programs but I did the reg hack before I found out about the program, the main one which is the most important one to me is the one where I can have a different background for each of my 4 monitors, the 2nd and also almost equally important one ... having a task-bar for each of the monitors ... both now are done by display fusion ... so if I do kill my win 7 install I can get that and not have to do the reg hacks. But outside of reg hacks I have completely re done the main libraries for the OS I have removed a lot of legacy crap libraries and then add the many different compilers so that my install can natively compile C++, C, Java, Perl, and many other languages ... this all being said my OS footprint is fucking huge ... around 50GB for just the install.
I have left the main controls and the way the OS works alone, I just made it easy for me to do my coding at home and not have switch between or waste my ram on a Linux VM.
But that does not mean that I dont use my linux partition

Different background on each monitor: It's already in there.
Taskbar on each monitor: yep, it's there too.

The coding thing: I'm not so sure...

For me, I think I would need a new hack to disable Windows Media Foundation, driver protection and hack the Bluetooth's "Play" button to open media files in defualt player (not in WMP). Then again, the only hack I found out of the three with Win7 was the WMF thing.

You can have a taskbar. Just it has no start button. BUt if you hover in the left corner, you get the Start window appearing any way,

Taskbar:

Edit:
when ever I hit Print Screen, the start window disappears, so you will have to take my word on it

I dont like the bar hidden and I like having the start menu its how I can tell its a windows machine without having to think, also another hack I used which I know will still exist in 8 is the reg hack that I had to do for the boot up sound ... my entire sound setup sounds like the .Hack//GU sound profile

The bar is not hidden, but like other Win OS' you can set it to hide (like I always do :P)

I dont have icons on my desktop
i use a program called fences to hide them
when I am not using them, it makes for a very clean envirnment

have you not ever looked at the posts I made in what your desktop backgrounds are ... I just screen shot my desktop most of the time or at least I used to
but now I cant do that since I has 4 of them

Just look at fence it is great, I think something like that is what windows 8 should of been like for desktop users.
