    Re: Chinese Pirates produce WinXP clone based off of Ubuntu

    Hmm, that WLMF OS at http://www.ylmf.org/themes.html offers downloads to the themes that I use from zgegblog found here https://launchpad.net/~bisigi/+archive/ppa .

    I used google translate to translate http://www.xiazaiba.com/html/990.html (the link to the infinity theme)

    It went from GPL to freeware?, and the credits file is missing from the archive. I'm not a license guru, but I thought I'd mention it.

    Correction, the license and credits files are found only in the tar.gz theme files at https://launchpad.net/~bisigi/+archive/ppa, not in the deb files... but still.

    Thanks for the link, I like collecting odd Operating Systems, this will fit nicely into the collection.

    It's not the first time people have tried to live off looking like something it is not. Though looking at the screenshots (provided they are of the real running OS) they really did a impressive job making Ubuntu look like a 9 year old OS deserving of eternal rest.

    I am though surprised that nobody has attempted to do something similar to the Macs, you could probably with ease do a cheap but decent looking design and we already know that we can make GNOME look pretty much like OS X - with added effort the illusion and well picked defaults I am betting you could both do a very decent product and fool people at least long enough to make them buy it. We could call it the iMax.. now with optional iPot portable media player.

    What arrests my attention...
    is the fact, that this space is inhabited.

    So why are they pirates? Everybody and their grandmother comes up with a new version of Ubuntu that looks like something different. There's nothing piratical (is that a word?) about that.

    Or are they real pirates? like with swords and beards and funny hats and parrots on their shoulders?
