Vista or XP?

The best place would be to visit probably kde look (I'm not sure of the exact url)
I never use KDE but I think you just add themes, and such. There is probably a windows theme there.

I would like XP but if you can make it work for Vista that would be cool.

Does anyone know how to do this? I am a noob so a good explanation would help. Thanks.

i did this by using compiz and emerald to make the windows and browser look just like windows (window decorations and such, i even setup firefox to say 'Internet Explorer' on the window). for making the screen look like xp, just take a screenprint from an xp machine and make it your wallpaper, then auto-hide your bottom and top bar. unless someone realizes that the time is wrong (since it's just a screenprint), nobody will know.

This is perverse! Why would anybody want to uglify such a beautiful desktop :)
I have only changed over to Ubuntu a couple of weeks ago and I don't miss a single bit of Windows.
