    no, this is just an abstraction layer. It is like a program that lets you "run" a different operating system inside it. If you are just looking for a linux "appearance" you might try cygwin. This allows you to have bash, vim, gtk, etc. on your computer.
    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.
