Transforming Ubuntu into heaven

There is a reason I’m writing this post.

On Quora, there was a question – “What are some awesome things Python can do?”, I wrote an answer which wasn’t attractive at all. I failed to write an awesome answer. I went deep and wrote about the thing which I did using Python.

It seems that people like answers of 1 or 2 line.

Well, after writing the answer, I got several messages about my Ubunut’s look. People were asking – “How did you make your ubuntu so sleek?”

So, this post is basically about – Making your ubuntu’s look awesome and sleek, just like I’ve.

First of all, let me show you some images of the distro which I’m using.
