    Hi!
    i really like the task manager of windows 8, i got hooked to it when i was trying out windows 8 (in my opinion its the best feature in windows 8!) and id really like to use it instead of the default win7 task manager:rolleyes:, ive tried copying the tskmgr.exe from windows 8 to 7 but it didnt work, is there a way to do this and make it work? perhaps adding some entries to the registry or modifying the exe?

    Process Explorer is getting Windows 8-style heatmaps soon. :)
