XPubuntu – an Ubuntu based Linux distribution, which tried to look as MS Windows XP desktop’s default look.
It is a base of installation of Lubuntu 14.04, with all updates/patches, themes, and visual tweaks to make it look as much like WinXP as possible, including:
– WinXP themes (blue, olive & silver XP defaults)
– Windows wallpaper background
– Windows start menu buttons
– removal of all virtual desktops, leaving the user with ONE to work with (just like WinXP)
No additional tweaks are necessary post-installation. This is a “turnkey” solution for a linux distro that is user-friendly to a user of WinXP.
