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...

- Drivers is a good call, try updated them. - You also might want to disable sound "enhancements". For some reason those "enhancements" often get in the way of things.
