    Mac On PC anyone?

    I just installed Windows XP and the first thing I did to it was to reinstall the whole GUI look. I\'ve always prefered the look of Mac\'s OS 9 and X and this little utility:

    ... helps you achieve this.

    It\'s a bit tricky to install but well worth it.

    Here\'s an example of what it can look like:

    That\'s my main sequencing computer right now.


    So for people wanting to get a Macintosh just for the looks, get a PC and this instead [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
    It\'s great because it doesn\'t affect your system at all. It\'s rock stable and great looking and it actually uses LESS memory than the default XP theme.

    PS! You need some computer skills to install it though, but there\'s a nice online tutorial at the IceMan site.


    Good luck!

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">yup And you will also get the nice features: \'slow window resizing\', \'not be able to open the dvd without pressing a key on the original keyboard\'... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Hehe it seems very stable. Haven\'t had it crash yet. What you do is basically overwrite the original windows DLL files, so that it changes the whole OS for good. It\'s not an application that runs on top of the OS, it\'s a modified Windows XP from the root and up, which makes it as stable as XP is without any themes installed [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] That\'s the good thing about it.
