What is the best looking distro out of the box?


I don't care much about all that programming stuff. I am looking for the best looking distro that needs minimum tweaking to look great. I have a fugly Fujitsu Lifebook and it is a depressing grey. I need something to brighten up the computer.
I am currently using Vista but I'm now bored. I tried Ubuntu and Fedora but I thought Ubuntu was too brown and Fedora too professional. Can anyone help me make my computer pretty?
Thank you.
p.s. Ease of use actually comes second to looks.

If you are using KDE, try http://kde-look.org or if you are using gnome, try http://gnome-look.org

Want good default looks, suitable for a beginner? PCLinuxOS is the way to go.

I don't think many keep the default look in any OS. It's too easy to change.

I do like the default look of Sam though. Green rules.

If you're looking for looks I would look into PClinuxOS 2007, Mandriva, and gOS
