Good to know that Default_8.0.nb is there. And, also under OS X, I can 
use choose it as stylesheet -- although it takes a lot of navigation to 
get there.

But how does one add it to the Format > Stylesheet menu list? I uses 
File > Install to do so and even restarted Mathematica 9 with a clean 
cache (using Shift + Cmd at startup). But Default_8.0 is still not 
listed there.

P.S. Docs say you can reset Mathematica's preferences to their default 
value by holding down Shift+Ctrl during startup. But under OS X that 
doesn't even allow Mathematica to open! It just brings up the context 
menu for Mathematica.app.
