Gnome Skin Pack is a Windows 7 transformation pack to make your desktop look like Linux. The Skin Pack is part of a transformation packs developed by Hamed, who previously released the iOSMac OS X,Windows 8, Android and Windows Phone 7 Mango skin packs. Like other skin packs, it provides a simple wizard that guides you through the installation steps. You won’t need to configure UI elements after installating the skin pack, as it adjusts all the elements automatically.

Note: Please bear in mind that such transformation packs are difficult to uninstall and a system restore point will not revert the changes. Before installing the Gnome Skin Pack, make sure that you backup your computer to revert the changes (if required). Moreover, make sure that UAC (User Account Control) is disabled.

To get started, launch the EXE file and accept the terms and conditions. You can either, choose Quick Install or, choose Custom Install to uncheck extra items. It must be noted that this skin pack is ad-supported; it attempts to set the developers home page as your default home page. You can uncheck this option during Custom Installation.
