 I am not sure about the font but you could definetely get the same look and feel (and I guess this will fix the font as well) although there are serious rstrictions. I think that M$ imposed a licence that you cannot deliver an application that exhibits the Windows look and feel to non-Windows platforms, i.e. you can use Windows look and feel on Linux/Unix but you cannot distribute it.
