There are some APIs that many wind 95/98 apps depended on that are broken in recent versions of windows.

Wrong. Not "were broken in recent versions of Windows", it is "are utterly broken since WinNT 4.0 at least." Been burned by it.

A lot of my wife's programs - sold as "runs on everything Windows" in the Vista days, is now broken on 7. And because we've got the Home version, running it in XP-compat mode isn't an option :-(

I want to know if Office looks like an app written in 98 if you enable the Windows Classic Theme.
