    Made this a while a go but modified it for this contest. Mac OSXII, I know all the windows are from the currrent OS, but that's not the point, it's the futuristic feel.

    Not bad, but it seems not apple like. But I don't know. I have had a mac 2 years. Some people have been with macs since the Apple II.

    i think it's cool - if it had the apple font and no glow round the text that would look spot on :)

    Very nice. :) But it would figure that OS XII would come out and Microsoft would not have really done anything to update their apps in the meantime! :eek: :D Psssh, if you can throw in a version of MSN Messenger: Mac that does video conferencing in that mockup, it'll be golden. ;)

    For everyone saying that it doesn't look really "Apple" I wasn't tryin' to completely go for the current Apple look since this is "supposedly" in the future. I initially had the Apple logo black too. :D It's a change of direction for Apple.

    Another thing, is it ok that I put "Apple OS XII" instead of "Mac OS XII"? I didn't even think about it. The "Apple" probably should be in the lower left where the "mac" is and vice versa...

    Hah, very true about the Microsoft.

    I had to keep it somewhat in the near future because it's just a picture of my desk with a bunch of wires everywhere, and a Gatorade Rain bottle there. I think by the time we get screens to appear in open space there won't be any wires, and plus the apps aren't any different. I had to comprimise.

    I really, really like it! I also agree though- is it OS X 2 or OS 12? :)

    That's for the viewer to decide :p It seemed like a fitting name to represent the reletive future. So it encompasses either the next OS, OSX-2, or the one after the next one, OS12. :D

    That's pretty rad. It's like Minority Report, but nothing here is 'wrong'.

    I'd be a tiny bit surprised if Apple used a MacRumors screen in one of their ads.
