As a KDE user, I will say that the default KDE looks nothing like that.

Seeing the kde desktop made me curious to have another look, and I found this: [url]http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=kde#/d475s7f[/url] That looks incredible, I might give it another shot.
New to ubuntu, how do I make it look snazzy like you guys? So far I've just been tinkering with the basic options.

Otherwise you'd have to learn a lot about how Linux works, and how DE/WM's work, and what the difference between those are. There's a lot more, but doing it all from Ubuntu is going to be quite a hassle. I suggest just using Arch and going on from there.

I don't like the notion that in order to customize your WM you have to use Arch or Gentoo. I used Gentoo for like two years and I used KDE. I did more under the hood customization rather than the UI.

There's just a LOT of bloat in Ubuntu, and it might be easier for many to learn about the system using Arch or Gentoo first. Of course, one could do it through Ubuntu, but if you want to learn at the same time, I don't think people would understand what the different settings would do exactly and how to utilize them without at least some knowledge of what is going on. Hence it could be less of a hassle to do Arch or Gentoo to learn a bit more. Actually Arch might be better at that, due to the HUGE documentation of software in general the wiki has.
How to get a great Linux Desktop: - Emerald Theme Engine for GNOME environments. (Make sure to get some matching GTK.) - Mess with Compiz. - Conky + Start messing with some .conkyrc files you find on the internet with the help of google. You don't need a specific distribution.

Yeah I'm really new; seeing creative stuff like this makes me love Linux even more. There's no way something like that can work well on windows.

[QUOTE=ButtsexV3;33179688]I want to be the little girl[/QUOTE] Nice.
You know, every day moving back and forth between Unity and GNOME 3 is a day I appreciate Unity more. I appreciated GNOME 2's intuitive nature, and 3 doesn't seem to hang on to that...Unity, on the other hand, manages to keep a lot of that GNOME 2 aesthetic while presenting us with the slickest program dock I've yet seen, even over OSX. It's simple, and works. Also, Windows key + typing to search programs is such an under-appreciated piece of functionality, I'm glad it made its way to Ubuntu.

Glad you like it.
