    Man, let people do whatever makes them happy. Geez.

    @OP: Looks nice! I wouldnt use it though, i'm somewhat allergic to Windows. However a "Macbuntu" of sorts would be right up my alley! XD

    Do you have permission from Microsoft to use their intellectual property?

    Probably doesn't; still he did a great job making it look like Windows 7. Though I don't really think there's the target audience he's targeting. People who are ready to change OSes tend to understand the change in habits required as a given.

    I have no idea why people who love Linux, or Ubuntu in particular, still want to go back to Microsoft and Windows. Yes okay, people are different and if they want to do that, then do it. But don't expect the majority of Linux lovers to start downloading and using it.
    On this computer I am Windows free for 1 1/2 years now and want to stay this way. Not even a desktop picture made by MS. As a previous person also wrote, do you have permission to use the MS stuff? Guess not.

    Not only do you need permission from Microsoft, but you also need to ask Canonical for permission to use the Ubuntu Logo and the *buntu suffix.
