Xfce "By popular demand, I decided to push the limits of Xfce's customisability even further. This time, I would make it look like Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. This task proved more difficult than trying to make it look like Windows Vista. Though I haven't achieved the same degree of perfection as I did when replicating Vista, I still think I came pretty close."

Ok, if it was purely a 'let me see if i can do it' thing, then ok. But people were saying that this helps converts. Like I said before, I'm all for linux progressing further into the desktop, but it has to be able to do it without blatantly copying an interface...otherwise it's no different than the korean rip offs selling Sorny batteries, or Magnabox televisions...

I appreciate and recognize the customizability of XFCE + GTK, I really do. I just wish we could see some really interesting results as opposed to Vista or Leopard rehashes.
