Yes, there is a distribution called Puppy linux. I'm not sure what you mean with 'all glass look'. Maybe you could explain a bit more?

Looks like you just want transparency.

It is possible to get transparency going with puppy, eg-

http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/sm2-puppy.jpg

Or other linux distros with openbox (the desktop enviroment currently used by puppy)-

IMO puppy is too much of a pain, and I'd prefer other distros (like cruchbang or antix) for use on an older, slower CPU/small RAM system. They run better than puppy IMO, and are easier to find documentation or other info if you want to make changes.

If its not that old a computer, maybe KDE 4.X would be a better choice. Its got more 'eye candy' out of the box than the simpler lighter desktop enviroments.

Please don't shout. Transparency is not a feature of Linux distros, but of the desktop environment you choose to use. Since you have old hardware I would go for a lightweight distribution, if it has to be a Puppy derivative try MacPup, but I would rather recommend to use Bodhi (which is based on Ubuntu). Both feature the lightweight Enlightemnent environment, which is fast and supports transparency.
