ubuntu like desktop

Hey I know this has been asked a couple times but im just getting a checkup, does anyone know if there is any way to make windows 7 look more like ubuntu with the 2 taskbars? I really do like the way ubuntu is set up witht he top taskbar displaying all the information like the network status, times, etc.

That's the best thing for customization and they are well on their way to releasing the best Gnomish shell for 7. Have you tried it yet? You might want to wait a little for them to put the installer together if you're not experienced with shell replacement. Read their forums --they are usually very helpful.
