XPde a desktop environment (XPde) and a window manager(XPwm) for Linux. It tries to recreate the Windows XP interface to-the-pixel point. Nothing more, no clipboard compatibility between Gtk and Qt applications, no emulation of Windows applications, no unification on the widgets of X applications, just a desktop environment and a window manager.

Linux fans don't give up on the idea to make Linux a Desktop OS. XPde is another interesting attempt to make Linux more approachable for "normal" users.

If you have Linux you can download the Windows XP UI.
