How does Ubuntu look like Xp

There is now a version of Ubuntu, which looks just like Windows XP. The graphical user interface has been modified so that the user think that they use the operating system and running on the Ubuntu platform. This was done by a group in China, which has been illegally selling copies of Windows XP. With the recent crack downs, they are currently using version of Ubuntu, which looks just like XP.

What does this information really mean for end users?

First of all, Americans should not be, because the operating system was written in Chinese. Most of them are not buying illegal copies of XP or XP with foreign sellers, as there are many in the local market. But that does not bring up the principle that people should know. Linux operating systems can be made to look like almost any other operating system because the system can be altered and changed so easily. Just because the interface looks like a certain operating system, it can not actually that operating system.

Another thing to know is a fake or a clone of the software. This happens a lot with a virus or spyware scanners. If you get the software, which looks like the original, it is best not to run if you do not know what you've downloaded the software from the original. It is very important that personal information from your computer, will not be in their interests.

Getting the software from trusted sources, and not doing anything illegal, will help to protect users from the best in the long run.
