I like Ubuntu and I don't use Windows except at office but I have always felt that every thing in Ubuntu/Gnome is a bit bigger than it should be i.e the fonts, desktop icons, the window borders and every thing else. This thing really annoys me when I am working in Eclipse. As a developer, desktop real estate is really important for me and I cant afford to waste it.
So the question is how can I make things look more like Windows i.e crispier and smaller?
I have attached the screen shot of same version of Eclipse running on Windows and Ubuntu at same resolution (1400*900)
UPDATE: I am actually using Ubuntu 10.10 but at the time when I wrote this question I only had 9.10 machine available to me so I used it to get screen shot.
I want things to be compact, not exactly windows like. I say windows because it looks lot more space efficient and I don't like the wasted space. Also I know that I can tweak almost every aspect of GNOME seperately but I want something that can do this for me like some theme or some thing else that can later be easily undone (if I dont like it)
