What would you mean by professional? – LasseValentini Nov 26 '10 at 6:36
@Fraekkert somethings like that – kst Nov 26 '10 at 7:24
Ubuntu is already professional. And enterprise. And Home Edition. ;-) – Stefano Palazzo Nov 26 '10 at 10:33

The themes by François Vogelweith that you linked to can be installed by adding a 'PPA'. For instructions on how to do this take a look What are PPAs and how to I use them? - you want to enter ppa:bisigi/ppa.

Once you have done this then on the left hand side of the Software Centre click on PPA for Bisigi - from here you can install all the themes.

Once themes are installed you can apply them from System -> Preferences -> Appearance.

Alternative terminal method: (Applications-> Accessories-> Terminal)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bisigi/ppa
sudo apt-get update

Then go the Software Centre to install the themes as before, and to Appearance to apply them.

I don't know what you mean by "professional," but you can find themes in System->Preferences->Appearance. All of these are the standard themes that ship with Ubuntu.
