I hijacked another theme to create this one for my wife who liked the look of XP but wanted to try Ubuntu. I thought someone else might like it also.Enjoy!


I added two different start buttons in addition to the original "windows" start button. Now you can choose from a Linux penguin or an Ubuntu start button

(NotXP w/start buttons)

What the hell? >:( No offence man but rated bad. I'm sorry if you put a lot of work into this but this is defiantly what we DON'T want to see. This makes us look like we have NO taste and have to copy M$. All mac/windows nock-off themes need to die.

I share with you the disliking of win and mac clone themes, but I don't think they are necessarily a bad thing. If somebody likes the look of another OS, but doesn't like the OS itself, it is nice for him to have a similar look. It is just a matter of taste, and it is good to have choise for that matter.
But what bothers me the most in all this theme cloning matter are the logos. I can understand that somebody likes Vista's Aero theme or Mac OS's Aqua, but I just can't understand the reason of why to put a win or apple logo on it! It is like wearing a fake Nike t-shirt (or even worse) - what's the point?

Well the creator of the theme did mention that he has a wife who is using a Linux machine. And guys, believe me, some people are kinda BrainWashed by the whole windows look, so a Linux transition might be kinda hard for them to handle. My wife had (has) the same problem. When I first installed Linux, she asked Questions such as, "Where is the close button? Minimize, etc..." Seems stupid, but it's true for many folks. So I said F*** it, I'll just find a Windows theme and put it on her machine, and that actually worked fine. So these themes do have their useful purpose.:-)

"I'm sorry if you put a lot of work into this but this is defiantly what we DON'T want to see."

We? We? I surely hope it's the royal WE you're using. I like the theme. It's given me the opportunity to put linux on my parent's box without having to explain everything to them.
Windows- and mac-interfaces are designed by large teams of professional interface-designers. It would be a shame if linux/ubuntu/others did not use the insights gathered by these people.

Just remember: because YOU want to desperately be unique and 'different', that does not mean everyone shares your ideas.
You are not a unique and beautiful snowflake.

I actually think this is great. I have a laptop running as a server. I have it autoboot to a guest account so I can access it on the road. So my wife powers it up as I need. She's much more comfortable (accustomed) with XP, so this boots right into a comfortable interface for her. My admin account is more traditional Ubuntu, but this fits the bill perfectly. Great job.

Don't get me wrong - i hate windows - however, I often need to do a quick screen cast or tutorial for someone who is stuck in windows. This is so much easier than having to remote desktop in to a second machine. People just freakout sometimes if you look too cool :)

Personaly I see this as very useful. there are times i dont want people to know I'm using linux in a public setting.
Call it hiding in plain site but if I'm sitting in a bar or library many people have walked by and dismissed my machine because they see what looks like XP.
My hat's off to the creator. You Sir,are a visual artist.
