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."

The really, really, astonishingly sad part is that we're still stuck with open/save dialogs in mainstream systems after all these years. Being forced to work with this mini-filer while preparing the place to save your document is just so very backwards.

According to this comment; http://osnews.com/thread?42369 the reason why we have to put up with this is that the first few versions of the Macintosh System Software didn't support multitasking. If it did, they would probably have let you use Finder as the open/save "dialog". This is quite doable, but nobody dared to change much in the "feel" part of "look and feel" over the past 20 years.
