Some Linux users find it hard to adjust to the Windows operating systems at office, as they are more accustomed to using operating systems like Ubuntu. Over the years some transformation packs have helped Mac and Linux users to migrate towards Windows 7 by giving it a Mac or Linux OS look. These transformation packs, have also been handy for people who might prefer another operating system’s interface on Windows 7, as they are more accustomed to using it.
Ubuntu fans who for some reason happen to use Windows 7, are in for a treat with a wonderful Ubuntu Skin Pack released by user hamed. This is the same developer who has previously brought us the Mac OS X Lion Skin Pack and Windows 8 Transformation Pack. Like the former two, this Ubuntu 11.04 transformation pack does not require any third-party theme patching application. Just launch the .exe file, select the desired options and install the theme with a simple installation wizard.
Here is a preview of this skin pack:
Note: Please bear in mind that such transformation packs are difficult to uninstall and often a system restore point will not revert the changes. Before installing Ubuntu Skin Pack, make sure that you backup your computer to revert the changes (if required). Moreover, make sure that UAC (User Account Control) is disabled.
When installing this transformation pack, you will be presented with the option to install the Theme Patch, files and extra items (e.g. wallpaper, visual styles, third party software, etc). You may select all or some of these options to get a comprehensive Ubuntu look such as the Unity Launcher.
For an overview of this theme, click on the screenshot (provided by developer) on the right, to get a full size view.
Ubuntu Skin Pack works only on Windows 7.
