    In the system preferences there is a category for changing the theme of OS X. Cool.

    Unfortunatly it gives you a whooping 2 options...Blue or Graphite. Is there a way to change the colors at all? Right now I am going for a green/matrix theme (I have this nifty background of the Matrix code and it forms the Apple logo in the background*) and I think it would be cool to have my buttons green, and my Apple in the left hand corner green etc etc.


    *seems to me it should have the Microsoft logo but eh I guess even the machines know which OS to use!

    Not that I've used it, not that I know much about it, not that I recommend it ...

    ... but Shapeshifter is an option, and probably the most popular at that.

    Note to the original poster about this app. It should be noted that since it is dinking with the OS at such a low level that it may cause some stability issues. I've read more then a few reviews of such apps on the Mac having a detrimental effect on system stability.
