I must say that I found /GNOME/ to be to have more resemblance to Windows. I
am not talking just about the visuals, but also about the look-and-feel
behaviour, which is there by default. It has the flavour of the stripped
down version of Windows XP or Windows 2000 and earlier versions of Windows.
In fact, I come across KDE users who try to get a Mac OS X lookalike, whether
under GNOME or on KDE. Windows has not been the O/S to imitate or pine for
in a while. I personally have something that is reminiscent of Jaguar under
Ubuntu. The wallpaper even bears the Apple logo. Even Thunderbird and
Firefox are Aqua/Brushed Metal.
