Windows 8 skin in windows 7?

i like how it the explore.exe in windows 8 is very simplified and minimal it is, but i like how windows 7 is designed that the desktop is the under layer(i know there is boot to desktop in windows 8, but that's not it), so i was wondering, can i change it that my explore.exe (windows bar, start menu, windows frame, etc...) be style like windows 8?
