You can disagree, of course, but that does not change the fact how
WinXP theming works. An application designed to work in WinXP or upper
must honor themes. Just open notepad, and go to "Format -> Fonts" do
they look "flat" ? Change your theme to classic windows and look at
the font selection in Notepad... does it looks 3D ?

Take your own conclusions. I hope to not sound rude but the fact that
everybody here answer you the same, does not means nothing for you ?
