Originally Published:

We've put together this handy chart that lists the common things that you do to alter the Windows appearance, along with the corresponding Linux GNOME and KDE methods. The list shows how to do things in Windows 98, Windows 2000, and Windows XP versus how to do it in GNOME 2.1 and KDE 3.5 under SuSe Linux Professional 10.0. Exact key combinations and menu settings you'll use on your own workstation may vary slightly depending on the version of Windows that you're used to and the version of Linux, KDE, and/or GNOME you're using.
