No, I don't think so. One of the labs I visit occasionally has Ubuntu installed on a bunch of machines, and (to me, anyway) it looks exactly like Windows with a different color scheme. Vista's a sort of aqua/green IIRC, while Ubuntu's orange with a sort of bird-like design, but both have their "desktop" icons, a start button at the lower left, a wierd little button bar along the bottom that pops up irrelevant messages at random times...
