A lovely GTK theme that emulates the look of Windows 7.

I have just found a very good Windows 7 GTK theme: http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php/Win2-7%28Pixmap%29?content=118227. This is a lovely GTK theme that makes your MATE or Gnome 2.32.2 interface look just like the Windows 7 Basic theme.

Windows Vista icon theme: http://www.securitronlinux.com/files/Vista.tar.gz. Install this alongside the Windows 7 GTK theme and your theme will be complete. This is a very good looking Windows theme for MATE; it is pretty and smooth especially when using Firefox.

Here is my previous posting where I told you how to install a cool Windows 7 theme: http://www.securitronlinux.com/linux-mint-2/windows-7-lookalike-kde-themes-how-to-make-linux-look-like-vista-or-windows-7/; but this one is very good looking on the MATE desktop. The Linux desktop interface can look just as good as Windows with the right themes. Even better if you want to use Compiz with MATE and get much more eye candy.
