Due to some bad experience with viruses on her Laptop running Windows 7, my girlfriend decided to give Ubuntu another try.
She is used to it since that is what I have running on my machine, but she never really liked the themes and the looks. So after installing Ubuntu on her machine and showing her all the themes she wasn’t impressed by any of them except for elementary.
After letting her fool around a bit she managed to change the window colors and the icons. I then helped her add the monochrome icons to the panel. Now her desktop is very feminine and calm. Here are some pics of how it looks.
