I use Linux Ubuntu, but I would like to change to Graphic User Interface (not specific looks like Windows). Are there any opportunities to change the Gnome GUI in Linux Ubuntu?

  • Zorin OS is an Ubuntu-based distro that offers a choice of several "fake" Windows desktops that are imitations of the desktop environments of different Windows OSs. – karel Jan 28 '15 at 21:18

Alternatively, if you want a more windows like desktop that is pretty highly vetted but isn't as strange as unity, try installing Cinnamon as per these instructions


Also xfce is a bit more windows like and conveniently, pretty light weight so things run faster on slower computers. The fastest way to install it is to open a terminal and run command

sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop

If you don't remove your existing desktop environment (no need unless you have to free some storage space) you may need to select the desktop environment once from the login screen.
