Software similar to Linpus?


Hi guys!

I'm new here, and new to Linux. I have just installed Ubuntu on my old laptop to try and play around with, after being encouraged by a friend (who is no expert in computers, and indeed worse than me!) who recently bought a notebook with Linpus.

I liked linpus's appearance with the way that quick icons are displayed on the desktop (seen two versions*). I just wondered if theres software I could possibly install on Ubuntu that creates a desktop similar to Linpus?

Any help would be great!

Thanks
Neo

Ubuntu Netbook Remix (out soon, beta out now) has a similar effect. Try it out!
Cheers
