I recently switched from XP to 7. I tried Vista in a VM, and I do like the Vista taskbar look. But having googled around, all I find is "How to make XP/Vista look like 7" or "Make 7 behave like Vista". All I want is "Make 7 look (not behave) like Vista".

I've found one site with info on getting the Vista look on 7. But that, for some unfathomable reason, requires actually patching a system lib. I'd prefer not to have to do so.

I mean, all I really want is to get that glossy taskbar. Me just likes! ;-)

You could maybe add a "glossy look" texture to the Windows 7 taskbar using the Texturized Taskbar tool.

In addition to Joseph's answer, you can also Add the Quick Launch Bar to the Taskbar in Windows 7, then unpin all items from the taskbar by using the right-click.
