What front-end/theme/etc. is shown on How do I install Skype?

I am a rank novice and installed Ubuntu from the web (forgot the site). It runs fine, but examples I find in various support forums don't look like my screens.

Could be, you've got something other then Ubuntu from that site you forgot of. – mikewhatever Dec 28 '12 at 6:36
obtain an iso from and install. This will look exactly the way you want. – Gufran Dec 28 '12 at 7:13
What does your screenshot look like? Include a screenshot – functionptr Dec 28 '12 at 7:55

You can easily install different desktop envoirements. Therefore, you can 100% modify your desktop.

If you are novice, you ought to know that.

In the given thread they probably use gnome or Unity. But those screens only show the content of a given window, so it's hard to tell.
