It just looks like a Mac desktop

We all knows Mac OS X looks very nice, and works nice also. But, Mac can not be only system for you to use. Most of us are using Intel PC desktops and laptops. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Chinese saying says “鱼和熊掌不可得兼” . So, you might need a new Mac skin for your desktop, no matter MS Windows or Linux OS. I’d like share two tips, you can make a Mac desktop in  minutes.

**For Windows: FlyakiteOSX is a all-in-one package. It much more easier then making a Mac-buntu. Does it slow down you windows system? Of course, yes. it’s just a little bit and acceptable for me.



For Gnome Linux:**

There is a open source prject on the SourceForge.net: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mac4lin You need download the package and un-tar it. A pdf document will walk you through every settings. I made my Mac-buntu just in 20 minutes. I do not like ‘global meun’ and widget, so I ingored them. 

My laptop is a dual boot Dell D630; with MS Windows Xp for work and Ubuntu for fun. Now, them all looks like Mac OS X Leopard. Check it out.

It’s interesting, but it is not the reson i chose it. Ubuntu 8.04 is inside gOS. So, it time to learn a new linux system. I neve use a Derbin based system, I’m not sure it could run for me how long.
