Ok I'm crap at looking for icons/themes and other stuff so I've asking you guys cause I've seen your desktops and they are VERY cool! So can you all please give me links / advice on how I can make my PC look identical to a Mac with the same icons and everything, thanks :rolleyes: .

Man ... this is how i did... please anyone else post if you know better(i bet you do... :whistle:)

:bulletorange: Software:
Stylexp ($)
ObjectDock(Freeware) or you can use other docks ( I would suggest tabock but it has lots of errors :P )
ObjectBar ($)

:bulletgreen: Tips
Well... you can get some great themes that simulate panther or recently tiger
Wallpapers come with the skins... some!
Get some kewl appp skins like for winamp ... media player
There are some great objectbar skins that simulate the mac bar very well

That's all i know ask davjon70 for greater info!

Well, if you want the icons, you should get [ IconPackager ] . It automatically applies icons to every part of your system.

If you already have IconPackager, I have an IconPackage with all the original, authentic Mac OS X icons. If you'd like, give me your email and I could send it to you.

[ Object Desktop ] , which includes IconPackager and many other components, is an essential if you want to have your PC looking Mac-ish. You can also find applications which mimic Panther components at [ Aqua-Soft ] and [ osx-e ] .

edit: I am sick of getting requests to e-mail people the IconPackage. I am not going to send it to anyone from here on. Maybe I'll upload it to a web server sometime, but not now. =as, jan 2006
