Yes, they do look like Vista, but don't forget that we've been imitating 
Windows for ages! Motif Window Manager and CDE kinda looks like the 
Windows 3.1 interface, KDE 1.0 and 3.5 kinda looks like Windows 9x and 
XP, and any theme that has a Minimize button, a Restore button, and an 
Close button in that order are imitating Windows 9x and above! That 
these days is the industry standard and we know it! Besides, Vista 
buttons are all touching, on the theme it's the first 2, then a space, 
then the exit button.
