Infamous Chinese pirates launch Ubuntu that looks just like Windows XP

From the Chinese pirate masters of the non-sea-faring variety comes ... Ylmf OS! Not happy with pirating Windows XP itself, these creative Chinese have gone one step further and hacked Ubuntu to look exactly like Windows XP. Why have they moved to Ubuntu? Because their previous release -- a pirate version of Windows XP itself -- is being cracked down on by Microsoft.

It's probably more stable...

Windows XP work really well. Vista was the problem, but Win7 is very good. Nearly as good as the MAC OS.

It may look like it but have fun installing Windows programs on it (without using Wine which most wont know about)

Eh, I have no complaints for XP, it actually was VERY stable and worked very well unlike Vista. I think if you're contemplating on XP or this, it would just be a preference of Windows or Ubuntu.

Question: How is taking a free, open source OS, modifying it to look like a different OS, then releasing it for free on the internet actually PIRACY? It's not XP and Ubuntu is free, so why does it keep on saying "chinese pirates"?

Me thinks the site might be in the mindset that "all software modification is illegal, and can only be achieved by leet haxors."

I'd guess it'S because their previous works involved piracy. If someone murders someone else, he's a murderer. If he goes to the supermarket and buys an apple, it doesn't change the fact that he's a murderer. So you could come up with a new title like "infamous murderer buys an apple at local supermarket". That's just my guess though.

If he served his time and he is regretfull (maybe he killed out of self defence), than he might just be another guy. Albeit one with a dark past.

Unless youre the guy who is: "once a thief, always a thief".
