    ^^ Best reply in a long, long time... :D :D :D

    But, on the off chance the OP isn't entirely happy with it: Try FlyakiteOSX, or similar...

    Have a look at http://www.wincustomize.com/ - there's all the info you need to make XP look like whatever - including OSX. (I tried the OS X look for a while, but didn't like it though - prefer the real thing).

    But I am running with a different skin on XP though, which looks a lot better than XP, and in some ways even better than Vista as well (at least I think so).

    Might I add that they have the absolute worst website I have ever been to. It hijacked my entire screen. To hell with them.

    Well, my suggestion may be a bit of stretch but you should try
    Ubuntu or Kubuntu.

    My main point comes from the fact that changing themes on Windows
    could lead to lack of stability. Secondly, if you decide to choose Kubuntu,
    you will have places like www.kde-look.org where there
    are OSX themes available.

    I would vote for Vista, but you may need to expend some $
    getting a nice video card.

    I like Ubuntu, or what I've tried of it, but it's my PC at work so I'm sort of stuck with windows xp pro.

    I'm thinking that, in time, a Mac w/Parallels would be nice, as I use two screens so I could have one for the single windows-program I use and one for all the cool mac-stuff. But until then, it would be nice to change the XP-look so I don't have to look at that mess all the time..
