Thank you for creating this. Sadly its the closest i can get to Ubuntu on this old laptop, especially now that I have a Zune. The added instructions and including everything in the .rar made it soo much easier to achieve the linux look. Thanks again.

When it comes to themes like these, I have to wonder "why?" I mean, by installing and using these themes, you want to have the closest experience to the real thing, so why not just, instead of putting all of these themes in XP, just install/dual boot Ubuntu linux? that's just my 2 cents.

Other than that, I think that this was a pretty good job here. I thought it was Ubuntu at first.

because some people 'need' to be able to use windows only apps. Or maybe, like me, we're slightly too scared of losing everything =P personally I just like making my windows XP do lots of cool stuff =]
