    The first one is PC Linux OS. The second is Red Hat. And yes, pretty much any distro can look like that.

    No, they're both KDE.

    It says PCLinux OS, but I thought thaty wasnt a distrso nut rather a grouping, ex Ubuntu would be part of PC Linux OS since its for PC!!

    KDE, like most other desktop environments and window managers, can be tuned to your liking. You can use different combinations of themes, icon sets, etc. to make one instance of KDE look completely different from another. If you're interested in doing that, check out http://www.kde-look.org/

    Don't let the name fool you. PC Linux OS is just another Linux distribution, but you do have to pay for it if you'd like to use it. Ubuntu is a whole other distribution unto itself. Basically, the only way Linux distributions are grouped together are based on the packaging system. For example, RedHat and Fedora use .rpm so you could say that they are alike whereas Debian and Ubuntu are based on .deb packages.

    You've already asked a question almost identical to this here:

    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/cof...ndows-one.html

    Stop asking the same questions over and over. We're happy to explain things to you once, but you need to take the time to read the responses rather than simply firing off another post.
