I'm willing to bet that most of you have Windows but does anyone own a Mac? I saw the aqua theme and I'm really entised! :D I found the aqua theme for Windows XP from customize.org. It's called Smooth Stripes. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v445/Thorny/emo/wub.gif

Looks very nice http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif
But The mac is nothing for me... it's more a buisness computer and system I think.

But that theme looks great :D

On XPTheme.org it's called AquaXP, Milkbox(my favourite, has a nice milky creme look), and some other things... there's multiple versions of MacOSX.

Problem is there are problems with the titlebars, and buttons, etc.. you end up having letters cut off and alike. I also hate having to patch my system (which can void the EULA if you read it), just to use these styles. I mean the alternative is that WinStyle from TGTSoft, but even still I don't feel like paying 20 for something that eats up alot of my Ram.

Personally speaking I'd like some good themes for my Mac (running Tiger), sick and tired of just the Apple MacOSX Themes. This said for Windows XP I ended up creating my own damn theme heh

I use a Mac theme, Mimic (panther). Looks almost identical to the one you've posted Thorn.

Mac just isn't worth the money if you are into anything that needs compatability.

The specs for them are laudable, but the quaintness of being a Maccie dies fast.

I use a theme called CrystalMilk from www.crystalxp.net (http://www.crystalxp.net) and I've been using this theme for months. It looks like Raven's Milkbox, but it has blue buttons intead of white. I really love it.

Heh, Macintosh are useful for me... Maya / Photoshop / etc.. all designed for use on them.

You get alot more bang for your buck with them, plus the OSX ones don't crash as much thanks to the Unix core.

They work well for what they're designed for, but as a replacement to a Windows Desktop; still not quite there. Still Microsoft do export alot of software on to them, plus with next years OS11 Release, should be able to use XNA (DirectX9.0c) games and .NET 1.1 Software on them. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Still doesn't stop them being ridiculously expensive heh
