I accidentally booted my two mismatched WD SATA AHCI drives in a RAID0 array and now the audio output from the media stored on those drives is static-filled and echoing (when it plays at all). Have I hosed my mp3 collection completely? [more inside]

I am used to Mac OS X and I really like the default fonts, the way anti aliasing works and the default theme as well.
Now I am working with Ubuntu 8.10 on other machine, but it kind of frustrates me visually.
I'd like to ask general tips on how could I make Ubuntu more visually appealing. I have found a couple of links
about how to make fonts smoother.
That improved a bit, bit still not there yet. I'd like to hear from you what font you use, themes, etc...
So, what are the tricks you use to make your Ubuntu install beautiful?
