If you use AquaDock with the Panther theme in StyleXP, it looks like Mac OS X. I think I got it AquaDock at www.majorgeeks.com.

go to, www.wincustomize.com

go to windows blinds

and there you'll see interfact Apple MAC (you have to sach for it) alike interface as in Apple OS-X.

but it doesnt seems to wok on everyPC, winXP is though recommended, I have my friend who has full thing working, although I'm not too much interested in these things, but just for heloing others I have asked him, and he refused to tell, why people are so mean.


anyway, some samples blind are:

and also

http://skins3.wincustomize.com/dartb...cbrushedwb.jpg

and also

http://skins3.wincustomize.com/kibbles/wb/MacPC_X.jpg


you can use them mixed, like if u liked wallp[aper of one, use it with other, etc etc etc, icons too, and whatever.

you'll be needing Windows Blinds software to install and customize it (to some extent) until u have bought full working version. windows blinds have other beautiful templates as well.
