Windows Seven Plastic Theme is an edited version of the MidnightBlackPlastic theme that allows you to have a seven-ish GNOME panel.
I am unsure of the author of that theme, but credits go to them for their artwork. YOUR GNOME PANEL MUST BE SET TO A HEIGHT OF 38 PIXELS FOR THIS TO WORK CORRECTLY. Anything larger and the panel background repeats itself. Anything smaller and the date and time unstack. For the seven orb, install gnomenu (https://launchpad.net/gnomenu) and the Win7 orb (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Win7+menu+button?content=98048).
Feel free to edit or improve the look if you want. Just do not upload it without letting me know. Thanks!

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
