7 is faster depending on how you handle your computer. When I had 7 it was running almost as fast as my current system in xp. But that was before I updated my graphics card drivers, after that it was insanely fast.

In other words windows 7 ran better on my computer without a graphics card then my computer does xp with a graphics card in it.

Any downsides? I recall this being done when Vista came out (make XP look like Vista), were there any issues then?

I haven't run into any but who knows. The only thing I can really complain about it you don't get the super bar although you do get the smaller icons at the bottom of the screen. Personally I prefer this look but if you use everything it may lag your computer depending on what you're running. Still if you have the ability to upgrade I would do so instead of doing this.
