There should be an image here!Most of us might think the idea of making Ubuntu or another distro look like XP would be overkill. However if you stop to think about it, I believe it really depends on the audience. For those who know nothing about operating systems or how a desktop could look differently.

No, as weird as it may seem, I can see a lot of logic in creating that familiar old XP environment. New users not interested in FoSS as a concept but wanting to explore a new, cheaper to use OS, would find this very helpful.

What makes this so interesting is how easily it can be done. XP in with a few clicks…will wonders never cease. Obviously this is not something I, nor other power users would be into. But it’s still pretty cool nonetheless.
