I got bored of the same ol' desktop and I thought that it needed some spice. I found a way to reskin the Windows GUI. I could've used the WindowBlinds program, but I had to pay for all the features. A better way I discover is through a patch. After patching, I went to find a theme that resembled Mac OSX. I went through a few of them and here's what I liked best.

I could've gone all the way and just done a complete overhaul of the GUI using FlyakiteOSX, but I didn't need some of the Mac functionality (e.g. Expose, using Dock as a taskbar, the menu bar). Along with a few other programs, I'm currently using a Windows-Mac "hybrid desktop." Do any of you with Windows run desktops with other themes?

Now I'm starting to fancy a Mighty Mouse...

I would expect that any processing, regardless of the strength or speed of such said processor would be appreciated, which puzzles me as to why someone really hasn't put this together yet.
