I like that XP thing you did there, Swarf. I was never a big XP user, because I only used it at work. At home, I started with W95, upgraded to W98, then got a new machine with Vista, which I upgraded to W7. But I always did like the simple clarity of the XP look. I also like the colors - that was a great shade of blue. It's great that Cinnamon gives you both the XP and W7 look. One thing that impressed me with Makulu is that Jacques gives you the option of Vista icons. I still think Vista was the most beautiful OS. But I'm staying away from Makulu until it is has a more proven track record.

I am now considering whether to keep Ubuntu with Cinnamon DE, or install Mint Cinnamon itself on that partition. I have not forgotten what you said here (I think it was you) about Ubuntu tracking you. Does that continue to happen even with the Cinn. DE? I am seeing lots of ads obviously tailored to me, but they could be residual "damage" from the Unity DE. I must say though, Ubuntu with Cinn. DE is very powerful. But through it all, I keep returning to Zorin (on it now). There is something about this OS that feels like home. Maybe it's because it does keep things simple. And by the way, you also have the best forum. The look is great, and so is the help.

Hi, The XP theme I downloaded - there is an option in Cinammon to download extra themes - I took a wallpaper from Makulu (ala Vista type) on another screenshot on here somewhere with black Aero Panel. You should read the issue on Privacy which I can't remember if GEWB had in Zorin 9 manual - I know there were some privacy issues with Zorin 6.

As for Makulu 10 "Aero" LTS - yes the Vista icons were quite pretty but I preferred the XP look and the nice Luna contrast for the windows. Are you using 10 or 9 in respect of Zorin? ;) :D
