Microsoft Late last year, news got out that an infamous Chinese pirate has moved beyond pirating Windows, moving on to creating an Ubuntu distribution that is almost a pixel-perfect copy of Windows XP, called Ylmf OS. Ars Technica contacted Microsoft about possible legal actions, but it seems Microsoft isn't really bothered by all this.

I remember for a while during Longhorn/Vista development, cloning the upcoming longhorn theme was the hottest you could do. I still think the concept videos look awesome:

Now if someone can clone that in a linux distro I wouldn't care if it's Microsoft who invented the look - I'd use it!
