    Check out this site. www.osxp.net

    It probably will not be up long, but at least they make Windows look yummy. :)

    Read their disclaimer. I personally agree with them. If someone runs these skins, and then sees an OS X Machine in person, it could prompt them to buy a Mac for the actual feel of the system. What do you guys think?

    Looks interesting... for me, though, all it would do is increase my frustration with Windows.. making it look like a Mac without being able to make it act like a Mac kinda misses the point... but for PC users it's certainly an improvement.

    Sweet.

    I'm going to try to Aquify my computer at work.

    I need a daily dose of Aqua. Working with Windows is just too frustrating.

    I think that stuff like that may actually bring people over from the dark side. Plus like mrtrumbe said, you have to aquafy windows while at work :)

    The way I did was talk my boss into killing the Win2000 box I was using, and get me an iBook.

    I use VPC for all of the windows stuff, and the terminal to get to the Unix mail server we use, and the Mac for all of the Mac stuff. Ain't life grand.

    This really shows that Apple just has the touch of design

    The software they distribute (not always create) not only looks good, but always is usable

    Even copy cats can't emulate the same method... I can't believe Apple just keeps on doing it over and over again

    It's a shame people are trying to make xp look like x--they aren't doing a good enough job to earn my respect :mad:

    XP already does look familiar doesn't it?! :rolleyes:

    like I've said in the past...

    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

    OSXP.net

    The site has been up now for over 4 months, its original name was urbanslurp.com.

    Since I got into skinning my PC, I bought a mac at christmas and hardly use a pc at all now, and i have had mails from 40+ visitors who have all bought macs as a result of my site.

    Wouldn't mind some commission from Apple :)

    Re: OSXP.net

    That's straight from their contact page. It's creative, but unfortunately it doesn't hold up legally! The Mona Lisa is hundreds of years old and existed before there were copyrights, so there's no one to enforce it. However, a GUI that is only a couple years old is a totally different story. I'm surprised Apple Legal hasn't jumped on them by now.
