    With all the great themes out, I'm sure at least half of us are using one. Some may be using a combination. I thought that this may be a fun opportunity for us to share what theme(s) we're using. A few screenshots will do. :) I'll start.

    On my G5, I'm using iLeopard and iOX. iLeopard tones down the colors, and iOX makes all the icons more colorful! Nice balance! :D

    My iBook G4 is mainly being used for testing out my Leopard install with updates 'n' apps, but at the moment I have LeopardRebirth and iOX, which looks REALLY GOOD! :D

    Why Yosemite? The Mac Pro should be able to handle El Cap or Sierra, and you get the additional features and stability...

    If you must use something out of date, make it Mavericks because it has the better UI. :D

    One specific reason…

    InDesign.png

    If this breaks because I updated I'm screwed. Adobe CC 2017 is bloated and InDesign slows to a crawl. Second, my coworker on her G5 needs to be able to open and edit my documents if there is a need for that.

    Maybe. But Mavericks also has a SMB bug. That bug causes InDesign to fail to save a document to the server after 24 hours. ID tells you it can't communicate with the server then quits. Any changes you may have made are gone. The only solution is to either restart or disconnect all server shares and reload them.

    That gets to be a very big PITA every day. Yosemite fixed the SMB bug.

    There is a workaround on Mavericks - if you feel like connecting to the server using SMB1 rather than the faster SMB2 protocol.

    You must have some serious muscle memory or the magnification set to max. :D

    LOL!

    Yes, it's set to max, but I only use it if I can't recall the name of an app. Generally, I use Quicksilver to launch apps, open folders, etc.

    I have appropriated the Spotlight command to call it.

    Decided to go themeless for awhile. I really have no preference when it comes to themes, I just like something new. About once a week I change the theme. This week it's how Apple designed it. :)

    Wanted to have LeopardRebirth, but, as I said before, I like to change themes, so I couldn't do a full installation. Instead, I just installed ArtFile, SArtFile, and Extras. No icons or dock changes (which is how I like it).

    Picture 1.png

    Per request I'll upload the three files to Google drive and put download links here. Or you could extract them yourself. File paths to install them in:
    ArtFile and SArtFile: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/CoreUI.framework/Versions/A/Resources/
