    Re: Ylmf OS

    A distro with an XP-based interface might be of more use than you think. Some computer users are seriously thrown when faced with something that looks entirely alien. But if they see a graphical interface that looks and (apparently) works just like they're used to, they're much more likely to give it a fair go. Yimf might help to encourage new users to try Linux. So it's not a case of "fooling people". It's a way of helping them.

    Many forum members would say that the XP interface is horrible. But awful or not, it is nevertheless what a great many computer users are used to. It's what they know. Using what they know to help them learn something new is a tried and tested educational strategy.

    The text under the home page XP image says XP several times.

    It says: "You see XP, but it isn't XP"

    Re: Ylmf OS

    The issues are

    1) "Ylmf Windows XP" was a real pirated Microsoft product prior to the arrival of "Ylmf OS" which is Ubuntu Linux. The Ylmf team has been frightened away from distributing real Microsoft products by the arrest of the distributor of "Tomato Garden" which was also a real pirated Microsoft Windows XP.

    See

    http://www.clonedinchina.com/2009/08...s-in-jail.html

    2) http://www.XP.com/ points to Ylmf OS

    Surely Microsoft would have issues with that.

    3) Google trends shows that Ylmf OS has become a very popular search target in a short time:

    I thank it is an amazing idea, just another way to show the average commercial user what Linux can do.

    Re: Ylmf OS

    I think that these are coming close to many lawsuits, don't you??? Though, I don't think MS can do much, or else they probably would have...

    This will probably reduce the users of pirated versions of MS, and legal versions of MS as well, and promote Linux in China...

    though... the way they go about it... i particularly don't care for...

    one version of Linux I like is Zorin, which works quite well, is easy for Windows users to migrate with, but trying to replicate Window's GUI to exactly...

    based on Ubuntu! yay!

    I think it stays true to many of Ubuntu's ideas
