    People do this all the time on desktop OS's. Macs that look like Linux, Linux with Windows themes, etc.

    I think the only time I've ever done this was to make a Windows XP machine look like OS X by using a "dock" app, but that's because I prefer OS X, but couldn't afford to replace that computer at the time.

    That's my point. People make their os look like one another in the desktop. It is very common specially among Linux.

    This is exactly right.

    'Cause, you know, Hondas are far more useful vehicles than Ferraris.

    don't know why you ppl compare these two OS they are so similar. I see the same games on both devices except that IOS has the unreal game which will show its face on android sometime. All this fighting of which is better is just stupid. Hell there crap load of ppl here that want android on their Iphone and even have android like themes on their Iphone because it's different.

    At this very moment, I'm playing an XBox 360 with an authentic PlayStation 3 controller.

    I've had both the iPhone 4 and HTC Incredible...I LOVE the 7 homescreens of the Evo...but that's about all I like about Android.

    But seriously, customizing an iPhone to ones taste is a good thing.
    A friend of mine used to use his iPhone with a Windows Vista theme....

    I guess it is all about taste, Iwas going to talk smack and then remembered that my PS3 is themed as OS X, so there you go. I do kind of wonder about using the theme off of a direct competitor though, it seems to me if you like the aesthetics of the other offering so much that you'll go to that much effort to change the way your system looks you should probably just roll with the real thing. I mean, I don't have a XBOX 360 or Wii theme on my PS3.

    Not necessarily... I for one like the look of things like live wallpaper on Android, but i love the "it justs works" os of the iPhone. Also, the app store is much better on the iPhone and with a jailbreak, you can do just as many things as you can with Android. I don't want an Android phone, but some elements of Android are nice.
