Welcome to the COL Forums jasonwnz! I do have to admit that I am a fan of the theming in mCOLE. Would not mind trying to recreate that on Linux Mint 17.3 KDE. I know I could get it by default in Spatry's spin of Manjaro, however XFCE and myself don't get along, ha! I guess I just prefer KDE. Great thing about Linux is that it is all about choice on your preferred desktop.
But definitely good to have you here! Let us know if you have any questions.
