Windows Vista look-alike Longhorn Linux

Longhorn Linux is a distribution built on the core of Ubuntu that has a UI which looks like Windows Longhorn, the pre- Windows Vista build. Longhorn Linux has the looks and feel of Windows Vista including the Aero glass like effects, the Vista sidebar and flip3D features of Windows Vista and Windows 7.

Because of the exaggerated eye candies which includes things like wobbly windows and 3D desktop cube, Longhorn Linux is demanding on system resources. The developers recommend a minimum of 512MB Ram, a graphics card and 3GB hard disk space at the least.
