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."

Believe it or not, some people actually enjoy the Windows interface.

Which Windows interface? XP or Vista? Personally, I don't see that much of a difference between XP & Vista other than the eye candy, unwanted DRM, the rather irritating "security" popup boxes, and the lamentable speed decrease from XP to Vista. Oh, yes, and the vastly increased license cost for the OS. Oh, Ah, and my old games don't work so well...

Perhaps, after all, there are some rather glaring (albeit unwanted/unneeded) differences.

Microsoft must have their marketing rather pat though, when people expend such effort trying to mimic Vista's rather lame look- probably patented to boot; careful there- don't copy it too closely.

Folks go to the store and purchase a new notebook pre-installed with Vista, since stores no longer offer XP as an alternative. "My!" they say "look how much sexier and faster Vista is than XP on my old notebook!" never stopping to think that perhaps the speed increase might have something to do with the new hardware they just purchased...

PC users are just a bunch of "Sheeple" and MS knows it.

its funny how that goes for people switching to any operating system. guy right next to me at work just explained to me why osx is so much better, since his new macbook with 2gb memory is so much faster than his 4 year old 512mb windows notebook.

most all users are sheep. only some are ignorant fanboys as well to top it off.

and bashing microsoft and vista is cool these days, right?
