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."

Seriously, this is:
a) Not "design your own desktop" it's "copy someone else's desktop".
b)Lame. Anybody who uses XFCE knows that it's customisable. Making Linux look like something else is not new.

Now if this article was about some new desktop theme system in XFCE then it would be cool, but no, it's just another "make Linux look like something else" tutorial. Linux is not Windows. Linux is not Mac OS X. If you want to use those systems, use them. Making Linux look like them is like putting a bodykit on a Ferrari.
