http://www.flyakiteosx.com/ This links to the main page for a very good program that makes your Windows look like a mac... I doesn't take up a lot of RAM memory, and ti runs pretty fast, if you can configure it right... It changes the start-up picture, the start menu, the windows skin... Everything... You even get the famous dock... Be careful tough too much eye-candy can seriously slow down your computer... Take it for a spin and let me know what you think...

I really dont know why I would want to do this. It would be a waste of to many things. Thanks for your effort but no thanks for the changes.

I installed it because I am Apple fan but can't buy a mac, but I removed it months later... mainly because of boredom and resources taken... :)

Since I am currently using Windows ME, I don't think I will be installing the program on this desktop. However my other desktop has Windows XP, so I think I want to install it. However, can you tell me does it make the start up take forever? I hate software like that. I do love Mac computers though because I don't like Windows too well, well I guess I will see what you say.

Well, it does slow down your start-up quite a bit... It also has a program that creates shadow for windows, and when you have many windows open, it takes up a good amount of memory... I don;t think it jumped over 100... Anyway, if you have a GB of RAM or such, you'll see no difference... I have only 512, so after a while I uninstalled it. But I recommend you to try it, and see for yourself if it works for you. :) (you can also uncheck some parts of it, like minimizing in the dock... I could never find my programs... they where in the dock, minimized...). Or, if you only want the dock, which is by itself a cool thing, you can use: http://home.cogeco.ca/~rklauncher/ RK Launcher... Whichever you choose, I hope you'll enjoy it. :)

Hy ,lucaalex87 and thanks for the link ,I'll try this program but I have to do some backup first and to buy some RAM memory , but until then I'll just use this wonderful dock that you have recommend. I find this very useful ,and I have to admit that this changes my desktop look a lot . Do you know similar applications that improve the visual part of windows ...apps that are related to mac :D

Hello lucaalex87, yes i am abdolutely agree with your words. This is because i myself also tried to transform my Windows look into MAC interface. Although it is quite niec interface and the docking features, but i can feel the machine run very slow and sometime the computer hang without any errors. So i suggest if you want to use the transformer pack, it is better that you backup all your data into another harddisk, to avoid data corruption :)
