GNOME

+ - Making Ubuntu Look Like Windows 7-> 1

Submitted by DeviceGuru
DeviceGuru (1136715) writes "Although it won’t help Linux run Windows-specific software applications, this easy hack produces an Ubuntu desktop that looks and feels a lot like Windows 7. It's particularly suitable for reviving older PCs or laptops on which the main activities will be web-browsing, email, document writing, and streaming music and videos from from the web. The process installs a Windows 7-like GNOME theme on an otherwise standard Ubuntu 10.04 installation, although it might work on other Linux distros with GNOME and appropriate other packages installed. Naturally all this begs the question: why would anybody want to do this? Why indeed!"

Making Ubuntu Look Like Windows 7

  • ...install a different theme on each of the virtual desktops? Say, have the Ubuntu theme on one, this on another, and a Mac OSX theme on a third? I realize this will make it quite processor-intensive to switch between virtual desktops, but can it be done?
