    Well im kind of getting tired of the usual look of leopard. the only way i can refresh my eyes are the change of wallpapers.
    but i wonder if there is a way to change themes on leopard to like a darker theme. (better for my eyes and monitor) (and i do use a dark wallpaper to help this)
    or lets just say change the whole GUI interface of leopard into another colored theme or w.e

    Currently, only OS X Tiger supports user-made themes. In essence, OS X Leopard is "un-moddable" in a way. Or just very hard to do.

    Take a look at an application called CandyBar (Google for it). It let's you change all of your system icons and the dock.

    Facade (http://facadeapp.com/) is probably your best bet. Its going to be released sometime this month

    Looks great. If it does what it says, it'll be a steal for $10 - as long as the paid themes are just as well priced.

    10 bucks is a great price, I haven't herd anything about the theme prices yet.

    Applications like this always make me nervous. It seems very unlikely that it won't have the potential to cause issues with system stability, no? Apple should include at least some basic options to customize the look of OS X beyond what you can do now.

    Kameleon is limited, but works reasonably well, at least for me. It only skins the scroll bars and buttons, however, and not the whole interface.

    Just Curious

    Since it has been nearly a year since the last post about facade, im wondering if anyone has any information on weather this will ever be released, or if there is any other program that has since stepped into its place. Mac seems to lack allot of things as I dig deeper and deeper into using it. Somewhat like the iPhone, what it does do; it does well, but at the same time, there are the things it doesn't do like... at all... or they tend to make it extremely difficult.


    Anyway, just trying to customize it up a bit, if anyones got some ideas on theming, please do reply ;)

    Magnifique does the job. I just installed it yesterday and it works. I haven't seen any stability issues yet. The only downside right now is there is only a small number of themes.

    You can get it here http://magnifiqueapp.com
