    Can all the aqua themes for linux be considered infringement as well? I think it more of a compliment more than anything else, as long as they aren't charging for it.

    omg... I hope the guy who made that gets shot (well actualy I just hope someone castrates him)

    The 3 identicle close maximize hide buttons are the same (but on other side), and they even have the oval thingy...

    Ha! I just noticed that in the bottom left corner of their screen grab are the letters: OSXP.

    I guess they like getting cease and desist letters. :confused:

    Actually it was just server problems. The site is back now, and I am a member. *ducks flames*

    I use object dock and iceman's brushed jaguar blue theme, if you have a problem with it, deal.

    I'm sorry, what did you say?
    No flaming... I'm sorry I can't say no.

    Its simple enough. Get a mac for Everything that a mac has.
    Get a PC because of what a PC has.

    Somehow geting software to make your PC Seem mac-like is suddenly good?

    Unless you have a mac and like looking at it, i don't want people to get this.

    Your free to go because you acually HAVE a mac. Just don't support them too much.

    You know, it's entirely possible to make a PC look EXACTLY like OS X... what with the little apple-bar on top and the dock on the bottom. I'd like to think of that as something neat -- Gnome and WinXP both have theme-abilities, why doesn't OS X?

    *ducks from the flames*

    That being said, I'm switching from Peecees to a beautiful 17 inch PB when it finally reaches my campus store... :D

    Sorry, I should have made my post less harsh.

    I don't go all out and make my computer look exactly like OS X, i just added the dock functionality to get used to the dock. I was planning on getting the tibook a while back, but my purchase keep getting delayed w/ each iteration, but i'm set now on the 17" powerbook.

    Anyway, I've grown used to the docks functionality...the fact that i can have a bunch of icons in the dock, and the magnifcation helps me click the right program (harder w/ small icons)

    As for the theme...I just like the elegance of the round buttons as opposed to the square windows buttons. And the brushed theme is a rather nice theme.

    As for the aqua apps that used to be on, i tried them, but didn't like them. As for the first post mentioning the genie effect, that's just eye-candy to me.

    As for the PC vs. Mac thing, I will always use PCs for my desktops...the speed and price are unbeatable. As for laptops, the powerbooks have the best form factor out there hands down. If that means I have to use Mac OS, then so be it. It won't be as bad as i originally thought.

    The font in that picture does not go with Aqua at all. Also, the idea of a pinstripe taskbar is just aweful.

    I've seen it before, but is it like a complete hack (registry and all) or just a program like desktop x? Cool though. Now if only they could make it really like switching to OS X and make 95% of your programs suddenly incompatible that'd be tops.
