I have to disagree. Mac imulation is not losing interest. That is why AeroSoft and AquaSoft are doing so well.
Although it needs some touching up in some areas. The main thing is that you're skinning. I'm working on MY version of a Mac theme, should I not waste my time uploading it to share?

Z71 Please do upload and share.

I have yet to use this theme but, it appears to be pretty nice. However the color just isn't for me.....

What's up with those square corners on the left side titlebar button? They detract from an otherwise decent looking skin.

Well, it's NOT for me either, but that has a LOT to do with the fact that had I wanted an apple on my computer I would have bought a Mac. I'm really not into very many of the Mac influenced skins what so ever. In the end they all have the same features...so I'm totally bored with them.

All the buttons are the same as the others available, and frankly Xero- has pretty cornerd the market on these....It's really hard to compete with his...and then there's an abundance of others available....

I agree about the left button...total mistake. Several of the font color choices are hard to read. And the skin's over all tone is flat (I mean color wise), but then there's a bunch of little "aqua" type buttons...sort of doesn't match eachother...but then there's a bunch of "flat" buttons (not aqua)....so it's like....Is it finished? or Did you forget to skin some of the buttons? And looking at the start panel, where the admin tools is highlighted....would have looked better if that blue was the same as the rest...the color is off and would have been even better if you used the pinstriped blue there too..

On a more positive note...it's nice for a first try and the blue pinstripes have potential. Perhaps theough not blue, though...ever think of trying a deep maroon?

Z71- your skins are amazing, so I must say I'm VERY interested in seeing your take on a Mac thing, but hope you are going to turn it into a Windows thing with Mac influence...I think that makes a LOT difference with these type of skins....at least for me.

And I am soory, if you think I am being ugly...I'm really NOT trying to..I'm just giving you my honest opinion....but that's the key....it's MY opinion....Good Luck.

Great idea thethimble. I wish you could make the window bar look more 3D-like, that would be awesome.

Thanks Craig!

thethimble, I do apologise if I sounded harsh. I did note that it was your first attempt, and I do think that sometimes people forget....And to be very honest... I should have given you a LOT more credit for that than I did! I, myself, have never finished a WB...though have started many...lol

The top left button is much better! And I can honestly say that I look forward to see more from you.

zigglefrop -well I have not a spare min...I am more behind on skinning than ever,with well over 50 skins I've already commited to, but I feel that others take time to comment and help on my skins so I should do the same. Perhaps you should take a little more time to tell thethimble what you think is great about this skin, so that he can continue to impliment the great things. Now THAT would be helpful.

Good start for for your first skin.

I did find some problems - the left titlebar button issue shows up when a window is rolled up (fixed in normal window state), mouseover on titlebar buttons activates all three graphics (instead of individually), expand/compress graphic for systray shows as blank, and the left edge of a window frame extends up into the titlebar (in contrast to the right edge window frame).

It's a usable skin with potential.

I really like the blue color on this skin. It's better than the other Mac skins because of the color IMHO.

I do have a minor problem with it though. I use a double high task bar which doesn't seem to get skinned properly. The bottom row works fine, but the top row is plain grey and I can't grab it to resize. Any chance of fixing this?

Also, the "Show hidden icons" button for the system tray is showing as the same grey as above.

Keep up the good work!

Working on problems described by Byron Todd and acrane13. Will update within 2 days. Byron Todd, I am not going to update the mouseover on titlebar buttons which shows all three graphics at once. This is the traditional mac style, and I want to keep it that way. BTW, thank you guys for all the wonderful comments.

thethimble -

awesome skin, actually one of the best mac emulators around ...

I have a problem though with the taskbar, the active area for open windows is white? Any reason for this as i don't believe it was intentional, I'm not using a double high title bar or anything either. Can you email me and let me know of a fix or post one? Thanks in advance.

love the colors though and the whole scheme is well thought out, great job. Email
