    @tom, if ya used flyakite, it has a simple uninstaller.

    anyhow, i just spent an entire day off playing around and researching this (how sad is that lol) there is a LOT of ways to do this, some better than others, but with a few little miniapps and themes you can get windows to look and act very close to osx, minimizing animation, dock behaviour, menubar dropdown menus, even a 'plug-in' finder that works almost identically. but its not easy, its not free and it will use up more memory than it does in normal osx. The best guides are these:

    FYI, flyakite is probably the best option. However, I would make an image of your Windows partition before installing it. Although flyakite has an uninstalled, I have found that it is not a clean uninstaller, leaving lots of messed up settings.
