PreviousIndexNext Aqua on Windows XP

AquaXP.com is devoted to making your Windows machine look like Mac OS X. There’s a distinct lack of any explanation about how, or what some of the downloads actually do, but it’s interesting. In a “why on earth do I need to do this” kind of way. After a bit of playing, which has given me drop shadows, transparent menus and not one, but two docks (this is the best one), I can report that my PC does indeed now run as slow as my old Mac.

I have done all the things you have done and my system run perfectly fine! I have Mac OS 10.4.8 on my windows based PC too! How old is the computer your making the changes on?

Phil Gyford has brought my attention to AquaXP. Looks like we may have to revert to this in the future.
