Xfce "Xfce is just as customizable as KDE or GNOME, so I set myself a goal: make Xubuntu look like Windows Vista. Though you won't be told how to achieve the exact same end result, this guide provides comprehensive instructions helping you make Xubuntu look the way you want it to. In any case, I would certainly not recommend such a setup for someone new to Xubuntu. Xubuntu is different than Windows; making it look similar is only confusing."

I've made Gnome appear much to Windows Vista Aero than that. I've also customized Gnome to appear as an almost perfect replica of OS X Leopard. It really showcases the customizing power of Unix desktop environments with free tools.

In the end, though, I like my desktop to take on a unique identity--not shamelessly mimic some other OS's GUI.
