LXer: Ubuntu Linux Clone Looks and Feels Like WIndows XP

Published at LXer:

A Chinese group has created an Ubuntu Linux clone that looks, um, just like Windows XP. Two big questions: First, do customers want a Linux release (called Ylmf OS) that looks like Windows? Second, is Microsoft willing to allow a group of Ubuntu renegades to mimic Windows XPís look and feel? Some thoughts here.

Great, I can imagine how good and accurate this Ubuntu Window$ clone probably is. I wonder if M$ will sue, I sure hope so.

I really wish the news bot wouldn't post multiple articles about the same thing.

Its Ubuntu with a more or less clone of the Xp desktop big deal. Let's name its Xbuntu like all the other *buntu distros that get promoted as a separate distro solely because they have a different desktop than Ubuntu's Gnome. Having a different desktop/wm does not make something a separate distro or even make it news worthy.
