    I'm afraid you are stuck with the looks of Windows Explorer as is unless you hunt down a third party explorer replacement.

    Damn. I might just do that then. I had the same question, and the Vista version drives me to distraction.

    That is fine if you want but I'd suggest you use Windows Explorer in Win7 for a while. If you are going to buy into the new Library paradigm I don't believe you'll get that sort of organization with current third party products. I find that many of the things I was used to doing I don't really need to do or there is a new way of accomplishing the same task.
