Remember if you are installing a mac theme to get the font right you need to turn on cleartype font, this maybe be the cause of some of the weird looking text. To do this

right click>properties>appearance>effects>
and in the second text box change it from standard to cleartype.

this will give you a more realistic mac effect and even if you don't have a mac effect it adds style to any theme its a good windows effect.

Hi! I know that this is my first post here and I shouldnt really be sayin this but the screenshot is stolen from This Website. But it looks reall cool anyways.

But, what I really wanted to say is: is there an alternative to ObjectBar that is free?
