    I'd say it is impossible to tell. Your icons can be misleading. They could be the apps they represent ex: Microsoft Word or they could be a shortcut to something like oo. I am going to guess Linux with an aqua theme. If it is what desktop environment are you using.

    I think that's some kind of winblows with an aqua theme...
    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    you need two programs:

    WindowBlinds and ObjectDock

    you also need to get the Mac OS X theme file.

    http://www.stardock.com/ is the website to download all 3. WindowBlinds and ObjectDock can also be found on CNET.

    There are also several other apps by stardock that do even more.

    You can make your computer look like a completely different OS. It is quite fun.
