Default Make Win7 look like a Mac

Ok, I don't know who might be interested but...

I found this neat little vid on youtube that shows you how to make Win 7 look jjust like a Mac.

The kid doing the vid is a little annoying but the idea was kinda cool.

Check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...id=yP2JZlwb7R4

Im probably going to hear about this...but WHY!?!?

The windows GUI is the way to go-not some overpriced version of *nix.

1. to make PC slower

2. to increase the chances PC will crash

3. to make work for yourself cleaning up the mess when the uninstallation doesnt work properly and there are 'remnants' left behind that have wrecked settings you had in place prior

Yeah sure the windows GUI is the way to go... nothing like tons of hard to use menu's.....

The last time windows had a big gui update was 3.0.....

and the mac operating system is not overpriced, the newest one only cost $29....

Steve Jobs said it the best:

"Our new version of OSX (Leporad at the time) will come in multiple versions,

Basic which we will sell for $129

Premium which we will sell for $129

Professional which we will sell for $129

and Ultimate, which has all of our greatest features, for $129"

I've used Windows, Mac and various Linux variants and I personally find the Windows interface the easiest to use but this is probably mostly down to it being the one with which I am most familiar.

But even so I don't find Mac the last word in user friendliness or stability. At the last place I worked they had macs and quite a lot of software went wrong with them, just like Windows or Linux.

The Mac OS pricing is very good but the h/w is pretty ludicrous. Maybe it was worth it a few years ago but I think with Win 7 Microsoft have closed the gap.

Since 3.0? That's a bit of hyperbole there. All the versions of OS X have not varied much in terms of UI...what's that? 9 years since the first version of OS X was released?

The $29 dollars is, essentially, for a service pack. Not a completely new OS.
