    Mac Themes for Windows

    I still like the Mac OS better than Windows, and I feel homesick. What should I do to make Windows look as close to the Apple OS as possible? Backgrounds, themes, anything...

    1. Spray paint your computer pink
    2. Throw away your mouse
    3. rip out the "window" key and replace it with an "apple" key
    4. Your new wallpaper:

    Actually, we need to Photoshop that Jobs pic to have a white background.

    Macheads have a white fetish, no doubt a reference to latent homosexuality.

    You will probably need to get a program like WindowBlinds or Style XP to make your PC look like a Mac. Style XP is better imo since it's less invasive than WindowBlinds: when you're happy with how it looks, you can simply turn it off. Stardock, the makers of WindowBlinds, even have a dock clone.

    I've played a lot with both, and WindowBlinds (v4.0 and higher) is simply better. Not only does it provide a lot more options and tweakability, it's actually faster and extends battery life on my laptop.

    The GDI becomes hardware accelerated with it, not unlike MacOS X and a little taste of what'll be coming with Longhorn.

    ObjectDock (regular, not plus)

    The problem with that link is that it tries to make Windows look like unmodded Mac OS X, while Windows can be made to look better than unmodded Mac OS X.

    windowblinds, stylexp, they're all garbage that slows down your computer and start to crash your system down after a while. :vomit:
    I watched you fall. I think I pushed.
