Give windows the linux/ ubuntu look?

I have a dual boot with ubuntu and 7, right now i am using ubuntu and the look seems very crisp compared to windows. I am not talking about the theme, its the text and the way it looks when using the browser. To me i would say maybe it has a better resolution, thats the best way i can describe it. I really have no idea how to use ubuntu so i will stick with windows but its just very sharp and clean how linux looks.

That's a strange post, because 9 times out of 10, the complaints seem to go the other way.

As a Ubuntu user myself, I haven't noticed what you are describing, so I'm unsure how to translate it to the Windows world. For me, things look good in both Ubuntu and Windows 7.

Which browser are you using? Perhaps the default font and style sheet are different for Linux.
