enter image description here I managed it my own way

First I went to Gnome-Classic Desktop Session

Then I Deleted the Bottom Panel By ALT+Right Click on the panel and selecting delete this panel.

After that

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool

Next step download this

and follow this tutorial

and then go to Gnome-tweak-settings >themes and change everything to xp

Last step Change your wallpaper.

That's only for someone who needs a windows xp similar Desktop session

This isn't end yet , I still needed the convert to the Windows 95 theme. enter image description here IceWM will be great but again , The fonts always seems too small when I get to that session.
