I like the idea of having a Mac looking Ubuntu. It makes it easier to “sell”, if you will, Ubuntu to those that don’t know about linux.

When it has the look and feel of something familiar, I have found Ubuntu to be more readily accepted.


Yeah Ubuntu is cool and user-friendly. :)


I’m getting myself familiar with Ubuntu and i love how the OS works. I’m still not that good when it comes to tweaking the shells and what not but i’d love to try this out. Thanks for sharing Praveen. Can i send you an e-mail in case i need some help in implementing this?
