Surely not exactly like it?????

I don't think that's possible, because to the best of my knowledge no *nix /open
source programer has managed to *exactly* duplicate the "this program has performed
an illegal operation" feature of the Microgarbage desktop. ;-)

However if you can live without that feature, you can make several of them look
similar to Win95. Try fvwm95 and forget GNOME and KDE. You can still run most if not
all of the GNOME applications without the environment - KDE applications will
probably run also,  but since I don't use them I can't say for certain.
