But can you hide the ones in OSX or Linux?
Or Windows XP?
Windows has always had the analog clock, but -I'll give you that- you had to double-click.
I seriously don't get what might offend you there.
How bored are you at work that you worry about being displayed the time in another format.
Who gives a toss.

And it opens the program right where the taskbar icon is
So I have Program, Program, Icon, Program
Just like it does in OSX or Linux.
And guess what... if you open multiple instances of one program by SHIFT-clicking the icon... it even groups them. Both the SHIFT-Clicking and the grouping are features that help keep your taskbar tidy and speeding up work, I wish the mighty OSX had them.
I, again, serioulsy don't get what might offend you with that.
If you want your computer to look like 1996, then just disable the Designs service (WIN+R -> "services.msc" -> ENTER) and Bob's your uncle.
Did you google how to have the explorer.exe open the Explorer on the "Computer" level rather than the libraries when you drag its link into the task bar? Or is that the next thing that will tick you off? Followed by the Indexing service, the Windows Search thing, the f**king annoying way you can now NOT drag a window to the edge of the screen and NOT have it adjust its size...
I don't mean to pick a fight, but people with your attitude piss me off.
"Ey, it's different! What a load of crap! It's always been good the way it was, I don't want it the new way!"
Like you and your habits are the measure for the rest of the world.
Like you not being able to cope with it would be that ONE opinion that negates the opinions of all the other Windows users who are happy with it.
I, as someone who has been using Windows since the 3.1 days, can and will vouch for Windows 7 as the best, fastest and most performant Windows operating System for modern Computer hardware.
They say "there's no use teaching an old dog new tricks".
If you want to be an old dog - don't try new tricks and bark if you can't manage.
If you don't want to be one - stop barking and learn the new tricks.
XP is an outdated P.O.S., it was stable and lean back then... but that's it.
It's not designed to run on any modern hardware with SSDs, USB3, Multi-Core CPUs, x64 architecture, multi gfx-card setups etc. It can't make efficient use of all the new technologies, CPU extensions, modern bus speeds, RAM > 3.6GB, etc.
So as "lean" and "fast" as it might have been back in its days, on a modern machine it would just be like dragging an anchor behind your boat. If you want to live in the past ... don't use Windows 7. If you don't, then quit ranting and learn.
If you have questions or feel bestranged and bewildered or don't know something... ask.
Don't belt out profanities, and please, don't ignore Google.
