If you want to just apply skins/themes to make your windows PC look like a Mac (For whatever reason...) just google for "aqua xp" and things like that. there are plenty of different guides out there.

If you want to try a totally different shell for windows to make things look and behave different, try blackbox for windows (bb4win.org) or litestep.

You can try DesktopX from Stardock. They also got various other programs to further customize, like the icons and the cursor. http://www.stardock.com/

why is this in the general hacking??? Shouldn't this be in Off Topic or Newbie HQ?

If you really want it to look like a mac, just get a mac mini.

Try Flyakite. That would give you either Tiger or Panther.

Yes it is, mind you. It's hacking up your windows environment.

I would be careful with blackbox. Last time I installed it, I really liked it, but after some time it crashed when starting up. Since I have win2000, I was able to fix it, by bringing up the task manager and then running explorer. From there I was able to remove blackbox, but it was still a pain in the ass.

I will put my money on StyleXp...

It runs in the background (No systmbar icon), and takes up little-to-no system resourses. Tons of skins are available also...

Of course, if you really care what your desktop looks like, do yourself a favor and boot up Linux with GNOME... Man it is beautiful :D
