And for those who LOVE Linux but prefer a consistent UI comparable to one of
the mainstream closed OS', these theme packages (transformation packs) are
really getting quite good.  I've tried both, and they are excellent.  I tend
to stay with the Win7 one because it's what I use at work, and having
everything where I expect (with only very slight differences) makes
*me*more productive. I have nothing against Gnome, Unity, or XFCE, as
they are
very nice too. Having a choice to customize is a wonderful thing though,
imho.

Or... Do the exact opposite and make Win7 look like Ubuntu!  CRAZY huh?!!!
