How Did You Get Your Windows To Look Like Mac? Which Program Do You Use?

sweet theme man, my only quandry is the minimise, maximise close button (seems abit small to me) and the text colour of the windows in the start bar is a little pale in comparison. I would also like to see a bluish verison of this if you have one.
great job.

Really love this one, however I'm experiencing some troubles with text on buttons: often the last letter is just 'dropped'. Anything you can do about that?

Gorgeous as always. Though I find the min, max, and close buttons to cut into the fluidity of the rest of the theme. While the rest of it is smooth, those buttons are sunken into the box which doesnt bind the elements well. I also think it would bring everything together if the dark line was removed from the slider. Aside from that, the theme is phenominal. I wish you would port your themes over to QT so those of us that run Linux, KDE to be more specific would benefit. There is nothing like this on Linux, not even close.

Excellent job kol

Is this for when you are forced to use a PC but miss your Mac?
