I have been using cpanel for 17 years!!!

I've always used the retro theme - now you are making me learn a new theme, when i will soon be retiring?!

Why!? I know the retro theme by "icons" - your new glass theme you are suggesting - it has no icons!?! I do not want to read every options - an Icon just let's us see what we need.

I know all the positions - glass has main bar on other side of screen.

Please make retro an option - I do not care about new features, or new designs, I just like things how they've always been - so I know where they are.

(You are doing a "Windows 11" update on us! We want the start menu in the left corner.)

Disable the automatic cPanel update feature and don't update.
You cannot expect a company to not try to update their design and add new features.

The retro theme is old and it's going to be a pain to keep supporting it.

If you want to keep using Retro, you really shouldn't update.
If you want new features, you can't use Retro.

It's important to note that this user isn't even talking about Jupiter, but retro. Glass is a skin for Paper Lantern, which will be removed in version 102.

If you'd like to keep the old theme, you can still use the classic interface without Glass, and you can keep your server on LTS or pinned to version 100 so you don't receive the Jupiter update.
