Bring back a 1980s theme to the IDE, similar to Turbo C with UPPERCASE menus and monocolour icons.
The theme in the IDE for VS2010 is so modern it looks terrible. What I really want is a theme similar to Borland Turbo C. ALL UPPERCASE MENUS, no depth to anything, and monocolour icons. I want to feel like I am back in the DOS console. Take me back Microsoft, your C++ conformance does so why not the IDE.

A++ would vote again.
This gets my vote just to highlight the silliness of the Visual Studio 2012 UI

Shouldn't this be marked as completed?
I'd upvote this brilliant suggestion if I didn't already spend my votes on other issues addressing huge deficiencies in Visual C++.
Sad, but true.
