You can get Aero Glass with this DLL:

Use a program such as WindowBlinds combined with a Windows 7 skin that replicates the exact look of the older OS' UI.

This software is not free. I should specify that I'm looking forsolution for free for personal use at least. But it really contains theme in trial edition that brings back the look&feel. Thanks! – LukasT Jun 20 '13 at 12:14
