    While looking through my school board's help documents (seeing what was up with the transition to windows) I noticed that an article describing how to browse photos in XP, and in one of the example pics it showed a tiger wallpaper!

    Seems like an outward manifestation of one's desire to be working on a mac...

    What do people who are forced to work on a PC to make themselves more 'at home' (desktop pictures, themes,apps etc.) ?

    I don't do anything. I don't want to feel that I'm working on a Mac since there are so many small differences in how things work that it would get confusing. Keeping the visual cues is important for avoiding things like trying to use Alt-C (the alt key's in the same place as the Apple key) instead of Ctrl-C in Windows to copy.

    One Mac-like thing I do on my work laptop (a Dell Latitude) is to create a dock - I drag icons from the start menu to the space just to the right of the start menu. Most other people still go through the start menu every time they want to launch something which takes forever.
