It's called Desktop Environments. How you can make it look different. GNOME, KDE, XFCE, etc. It's is mostly Debian, Ubuntu or Arch around here. Mostly, not all.

My old HP NC8430 has been given a new lease of life:

 

Screenshot_20130904.2324_tn.jpg

 

Updated to a mainline PPA kernel (latest that doesn't M.D.K Cinnamon 1.8.8) to resolve numerous HP BIOS caused ATI / Intel core2duo APM/ACPI issues e.g. Crash on shutdown/reboot, >83C CPU, intermittent blue-tooth, Apple keyboard LED's flashing like an X-mas tree & locked 40% fan speed hilarity. Installing tlp as well is a must!

 

Runs Windows 98SE via VM Player with hardware pass-through for parallel port (via HP docking station) for old school PlayStation communication via Blaze Xplorer X-Link (Memory card access, dis-asm, break point, cheat codes, etc) which offers no timeouts compared to it's previous Windows XP VM Player host life. Doesn't do too bad at running the same games emulated @ 1080p via PCSX-R as required when certain actions cause a real PlayStation / X-Link to die.

 

Very happy with Mint 15!

What cinnamon extension(s) are you using for the taskbar? Generally I'm not a fan of cinammon, but this desktop looks very nice.
