Some of you might have noticed that I have created a theme page on this blog, which I would put in whatever themes I created for you to download.

I decided only to put my  theme’s post link without previews, since at gnome-look.org I have submitted many screenshots for my themes!

I have uploaded to gnome-look.org Distant Light, which after long hours of hard work turned out to be a very Vista-like Elegant GTK Theme.

But I had problems in uploading since there was some sort of network error, so I re-uploaded and fixed some stuff in my theme download page.

Forget all these silly “Get a Mac” and “Mac vs PC” ad campaigns, since the real opponents in the software world are neither Microsoft nor Apple, but two philosophies Open Source vs Proprietary!

But Microsoft, the mother and protector of all proprietary, for sure has an opponent, and it is not Apple or Google, but it is Linux which threatens it’s beloved money maker Windows OS.

I don’t know what Linux users who are reading this post are feeling, but I am extremely enthusiastic and anxious for the release of the Fedora 11 Leonidas operating system, although I have seen the Fedora 11 beta release!

I have been working for some time on a full Gnome theme that makes your Linux desktop look like a black Windows Vista, but due to some errors and glitches in the gtk2+ theme (That is responsible for the controls), I decided only to release the Metacity Theme (Window Borders) under the name of Vista Black Basic !

It is an open source Metacity theme licensed under the GPL, and is based on “Vista Basic” Metacity theme !

After all my work which was editing the theme’s script and editing some images using GIMP, I achieved a great result, and decided to share it with the Linux Community at gnome-look.org, since I am determined that this Metacity theme is one of the best Vista Black Themes out there!

After both Microsoft’s “Laptop Hunter” advertisement campaign and Apple’s “I’m a PC”, the Linux Foundation decided to do and advertisement contest to choose the best ad for Linux.

And after doing so hundreds of videos were submitted by many people in the Linux community, and of these videos one was chosen as the best and also two other runner-up videos were chosen!

But in this post I will only publish the winning advertisement under the name of  ” What does it mean to be free ?”.
