Would these be infringing on copyright?

Probably, I used to have an OS X theme on XP which I got from themexp.org, when I last looked at had been removed from the site at the request of Apple :p

Well, no matter what, you can't download the applications anyway. It states 404. The webpage just tells Microsoft that the GUI for XP sucks and that Apple's one is better. Kind of makes me laugh. Picture Bill Gates going to his friends house, turns on the PC and it looks like OSX. He'll probably make a copy for himself

so you haven't given up yet, aafuss1. why bother asking this question when you know that in the past you've been told it would be a copyright problem, on more than one time.

Thats too bad. I cant think why Apple would want to have to removed. Its not like Windows users are running out to make XP look like OS X. (its allready a lame rip off as it is) It would probably only be used by Apple users that are forced to use Windows. I have a Win2000 Box on my desk at work and would love to use an OS X skin.... but then again... I would probably get in trouble with the IT department for that :)

What's the big deal? Emulation is the sincerest form of flattery (especially when Apple is making this big push to convert PC users). Seems like more a step in the right direction than the wrong one.
