Your choice thats what Linux is all about...
If I'm not mistaken, CrystalXP.net
is A Open Source Site...

If it wasn't then you wouldn't be able to dwnld them for XP to make it look like Vista...
Without being "WGA"...

Or be able to get them to modify for Linux, at least not leagaly!!!

Give the man A break I still think he's done A Great Job...

And if you look at the NEW KDE4 Screen it looks an Awful lot like Vista's and I don't see anyone complaining about that...

I use to use Linux as my primary OS.
And for eveything but Gaming I believe that in most ways Linux is far superior.
As A matter of fact I still use it from Live CD at times when I want to goto sites that will kill A Winblows Machine.
Winblows has nothing on Linux in the Security Dept.
But I was having probs with Cedega, Wine, etc running most of the games it was to support. So that is why I went to Vista for PURE GAMING...
I'd dual boot if I had A big enough HD.
Linux is about Choice... Thats the Great Thing about Open Source Choice...
If he decides to use some Vista Stuff to make his Linux Desktop Better the big deal.
I still use GIMP and Open Office on my Winblows Box because they are far superior to anything offered by Micro$haft.
Why am I here then if I'm running Vista.
I come here for BG's, and some Icons that I can use to make my Desktop look the way I want it instead of the Defaults Winblows gives me.
And they aren't bad either.
But if somone thinks badly about me for using Windows and coming here thats their problem.
But if anyone would Look at Vista it has Alot of Open Source in it Buy the way it looks and does Stuff.
Micro$haft had to take some of Open Source Apps to fix the problems they were having with Vista.
What I'm trying to say here is Simple.
Micro$haft having to use Open Source to fix it's probs A testimony to Open Sources "GREATNESS"...
And the Open Source Community ought to be PROUD of that Fact...
And the fact that someone took A set of Vista Icons and turned them into something they like by putting their choice of OS Symbols on them Big Deal..

I think it's "GREAT"....
Don't let those who don't like SCI FI get you down.
If liking SCI FI makes you a NERD, then there's an awful lot of us.
Look at the stats at the Movies?
The majority of the time if a SCI FI is playing, It out sells any of the others going.

I love SCI FI but have very little time to watch it, But my wife watches them quite a bit, and I dwnld for her..

THANKS AGAIN and keep up the good work, SCI FI or not... - Mar 23 2008

It's published under the GPL license.
Do as I've done in the Past alter it yourself.

ie: Remove the Watermark.
And resize it........

And all you need to do it is, Krita and or Gimp...

I also prefer Kolour Paint, It can be quite useful... - Jul 14 2007

I only commeted on that because you had said.
Only english comments Please.

I'm Grateful to you for putting it in english because I wouldn'nt be able to understand your language.
For that I'm most Grateful.

As for your grasp of the english language, It looks pretty darn good to me.

A Simple misspelling on a BG was/is no big deal.

I misspel all the time as most of us english speaking people do, so Welcome to the club... - May 16 2007
Agreed.

This is one thing I never could figure out.
All over this site says ONLY ENGLISH allowed.
But I see more things said thats not in English.
Then there is in English?

I don't know why they don't Yank that which they say isn't allowed.

But in any event THANKS for standing up for the use of English.

And Great Work on the BG. - May 16 2007

You stated it so I'm stupid enough to reply....

Depending which side of the Sexual Fence your on...

If your a woman then the Male Body better look good to you.

And if your of the Male Gender and the Male Body appeals to you in anyway, Then your just plain sick and preverted...
And before it's said the same goes for a Woman liking to look at another Female, instead of a man....

Let me simply put it this way.

I've been Very Happly Married for 15 yrs.
And I'd much rather look at my wife's body, then some Freakin Male Period.

With that said, I don't Care if you like the plain simple Truth or Not... - Apr 13 2007

Once again Agreed.

What is this doing on a Gnome Website?

I've seen the same Friggin one on KDE-look.org as well.

It has nothing to do with the promotion of Linux or it's Various Flavours.

While I'm all for freedom of speech this one for examp[le, or anything Political should be Automkattically taken off of a Website like this.

It has NO PLACE here PERIOD... - Apr 10 2007
Agreed..

They CAN'T Beat Us in a Fair Face to Face Fight.

So they have to Hide their Faces.
So they can't be Tracked down like the SCUM they are.

I said it before and I'll say it again.

AND I don't Care who likes it Killem all Let Allah Sort them out.

Lets start out with the White Traitor RAGHEADS, and Work our way Down from there. - Apr 10 2007
I'm going to make this SHORT..
And to the point and I don't give a **** what others think....

I agree with most on this thread.

But to the S******* who made this.

I see a shadow of a RAGHEAD Islamic what the they want to call themseleves.

There the ones who killed 3,000 innocent people on 9/11.

If you don't like this Country then why the **** are you here?

I seem to remember them saying that if Bin Laden hadn't of made Millions in the very country he's suppose to hate that much.
He'd never had the money to do it to begin with.

I love the Artwork, Design and I Love the Background as a whole.

"GREAT JOB"

But as far as Linux being the OS of Tommarrow there is "NO DOUBT" about that.

It will BE...

What many don't realize is that the mighty "Windoze Pista"

Only came out after a number of setbacks, BECAUSE of the Simple Fact they used alot of Open Source and GPL Software to fix it's many Problems...

Whimpy MicroCRAP couldn't do it themseleves.
They had to look at what Makes Linux "ROCK SOLID" to just Barely Shore up another Crappy Product.

I know Plenty of people who went out a Plugged Down "MEGA BUCKS" for that peice of CRAP!!!

And they are regreting they ever left XP which is another Story altogether.

With that said GREAT JOB...

Suggestion: How about making the same Background but "Without" the ?.

And the word "YES" where it was and I'd be "VERY INTERESTED" in downloading it. - Mar 07 2007
