XP to Mac Skins (Gant3, Flyakite)
Thursday, December 01, 2005
The Gant3 Ocean ShellPack ran just fine without boosting my CPU usage more than 10% (may vary by system). The dock installed was easy to manipulate and within 10 minutes, I was able to remove all of the icons that were unnecessary and add my own (like netstumbler and other useful utilities). With the dock set, I was able to remove a clutter of icons that used to litter my desktop. One of the other applications installed was ubericon which gave me the 'bump' effect when clicking on an icon.
So far I have been using these skins for the last week and have been content with the results. No, it's not OSX, KDE or GNOME, but it does function better than the standard out of box installation of XP, and I think it looks a hell of a lot better.
