Wallpaper is from the "request" set found at Deviant Art, chocolatised by me.
icons are a selection including glass folders by Adrian Jones, modded slightly to suit the wallpaper.
Yeti Box again modded slightly and Imac G5 icons set by Steve Fortin AGAIN...modded by me to match the rest.
Can't remember which finder icon I used but a modded the hell out of it anyway.

Where can I get this version of photoAVG Makki, it might suit the wallpaper and icons i'm using above, cold is very nice but it's a pain to use with photoshop, which sadly is the most commonly used app on my ibook.

Also, it's good to see so many familiar names here. Like old times.

What do you guys and gals think about Windows?
Just kidding,,,, what kind of performance are you getting with your theme enabled and what kind of Rig are you running.
I have a stock MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo...
I had the Clear Vista Type theme enabled and my fans would kick on all of the time and things were a bit slow.
I thought I had a kick but Rig, any thoughts?

Thanks. I am using 'Stylish' (it's like greasemonkey) You can find the script here:

Thanks for the link duckie. Cats is an installer like Uno by Susumu.
You can find more info here: http://www.seph.ws/susumu

The site is in Japanese, but you should be able to naviagate nonetheless by the sidebar on your right.

Normally I hate it when people put a "dock bar" at the bottom of the wallpaper, but that's really well done.

I agree I normally don't like it either, but it looks nice here.
However I'm new to the world of customizing so not familiar with some things. Like the menu bar looks customized more than general shapeshifter capabilities? no spotlight and whatever that icon is just to the right of the apple. How is this achieved? Also, in the "dock bar" I'm assuming the dock is aligned to the lower left there with separators, but what are the icons to the lower right then? and how would one go about doing that as well?

Thanks in advance to any help you guys can give to a OS X customization newbie!

That snapshot of mine, is 10.3.9. Dashboard and spotlight are 10.4+.

The "dock bar" is a little konfabulator widget that I made to put other things on, like my dock and the Who's There? konfabulator widget.

DragThing is what the icons in the lower right corner are. When I click on it, it expands with more apps. I put apps that I don't use every day in it, so my dock isn't overrun.

Thanks for the response cruciarius! I have 10.4 but I can still get rid of the spotlight and fast user switch from the menu bar (I rarely use either so it was just clutter). I'll still check out konfabulator, maybe I'll like some of the widgets with that better than the dashboard ones. And I've got DragThing, looks like I will have to play around with that since I wasn't aware you could make the tab an icon like that rather than just the text. Always got learning to do! haha, thanks alot for the help!

EDIT: I have figured out the icons in DragThing, I like it much better that way than with the text. What is the iTunes controller in the menu bar? looks like synergy but i can't seem to find a skin for it that achieves that inset look in the menu bar like that....Sorry for so many questions!
