Transform Windows XP into Linux Ubuntu
Transform Windows XP into Ubuntu. There is no single installer for this one. But yet these tools in combination can give Windows XP, look of Ubuntu. The good thing about having a package with all these elements, categorized in several different folders, is that you can choose what to install and what to leave unchanged. The downside is that you have to do it step by step. But thats what we call geeky, eh! You can install and uninstall these as you wish to. These will not disturb your Windows XP files, programs and settings but just transform the look and feel of your Windows XP into beautiful Linux Ubuntu version.
