    Hello,

    At the moment, I have installed android 9 x86 on my Asus PC, since the computer is very old and I was looking for any operating system which would work fluent on this machine.
    So now I am struggling to make it look like windows desktop. Is there any possibility to make it look alike? If so, how can I do this?
    I mean, I need to set the bottom task bar, multi windows with "Minimize, Maximize, Close" functions and so on. The closer the looks to original Windows 7 the better.

    Computer specs: Intel celeron 900, 2 GB ram.

    Many (most? all?) Linux distributions in their native form look much more similar to Windows than Android does. I have no idea what is available in Android, but I think that for your quest you'd be better off looking at Puppy Linux or Lubuntu or several other small distributions. You can try them as a "Live CD" without installing until you find one that you like and that "likes" your computer.

    I've tried lots of linux version already, including Lubuntu, Linux mint, Zorin OS and couple of others. It runs quite smooth, unless I download browser and get the windows 7 theme, afterwards CPU usage jumps straight to 100% and PC starts to lag.
    So far, android seemed the best option, since everything runs very smoothly.

    @Johnny b, what's your specs?
