Make Your Mac Look Like Windows

Make Your Mac Look Like Windows

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder - or so we've been told.

 

WHAT YOU NEED

Mac OS 10.3 or later ($129, www.apple.com)
ShapeShifter ($20, www.unsanity.com)
Mac OS XP 2.5 (free, www.maxthemes.com)
Mighty Mouse ($10, www.unsanity.com)
Windows-ish cursor (free, www.resexcellence.com)
Macintosh Explorer OS X ($15.95, www.ragesw.com)
Barf bags ($4.95 for a pack of five, www.sicksaver.com)

 

Mac OS X's interface is beautiful, but some folks find it distracting. To help you keep focused on your work instead of Aqua, here's how to make OS X look like one of the ugliest interfaces ever: that of Windows XP.

i hate apple

why would anyone not LOVE windows? I got a mac 4 years ago, and it was probably the worst purchase i ever made. 2000 dollars for what 400 could get you in a windows pc, with windows being the better OS. Apple focuses too much on visual details that dont even look good and make them outrageously overpriced. I came here looking for a way to make this poop computer look at least a little like the better OS, windows. I am sad being stuck with this piece of crap excuse for a computer. I want to UPGRADE to windows soon.

i can understand why somebody might want to make windows xp look like mac or vista - because its ugly! but why deface aqua with the ugly preschool blue and green that is XP?... if you really need to see xp, use parallels! and as for the previous "mac sucks" comment - im a user of both mac and PC, i have a powerful windows desktop running vista that i use most of the time, and a nice little super-light black macbook i use for school. Its reliable and fast, and i dont have to worry about it waking up in my bag... or crashing while doing some really simple task!

my mac owns in both speed and reliability over my windows machine, vista often does strange things, and hangs for an unknown reason! my mac with leopard has only twice crashed in the year i have had it (i upgraded to leopard recently when it came out).

im not a "mac fanboy", i was brought up on PCs, and still use them at home and for some school stuff. Everything i learnt about computers came from the PCs i have owned, however i also now know a mac is

Out of your awesome "Macness", you failed to realise your bottom logo on this page doesn't look that professional. Rather like someone cut it off a white background in paint with 20% JPEG quality. Mac monitors are that good?

Victim of computer identity crisis

There are always computers available in the Mac lab at school. The problem I just had a minute ago is that once I put in my flash drive and started working on a document, I clicked off to the side (somewhere on the desktop maybe?) and the whole computer switched so that it looked like it was running Windows. I couldn't find an option anywhere to switch back to Mac. My document vanished and the faux-windows wouldn't recognize my flash drive.... I had to just remove the flash drive without "removing safely" and now my document looks like JUNK. What the heck? Why was the computer having an identity crisis? How do you switch your Mac computer back to looking like a Mac so that documents you are working on don't get destroyed???

I'm not sure when it happened, but Windows has surpassed Mac in a variety of ways. After years of claiming they were the fastest machines, apple switches to Intel...and they don't even offer ultra high end versions. Then they claimed to be the cheapest machines, but Dell is about half the price for identical components. Plus the OS has some major problems including networking, crashing for no reason, memory errors, and usability questions. Why can't I rename a folder when I'm in the save as dialog box. At least they finally admitted two mouse buttons are better then one.

Hate Macs

Yeah, I was hoping this article would actually be useful. I'm so sick of you snobby Mac users who think Macs are god's gift to the nerd world! There are soooo many annoying, impractical and completely UNintuitive things about Macs! Nevertheless I'm forced to use one at work, even though I hate them and find them counterproductive. Not that Micro$oft products are perfect - there are many many things to dislike about Bill Gates and M$. However, I have noticed a generally distasteful snobiness about Mac users that is inappropriate and unwarranted. Get a clue! Macs are lame!

Future linux user if vista doesnt get its crap together
