    Is this the famed Aqua icon set that Apple made sites like Aqua-soft take down due to infringment?

    I've been cleaning my drive over the weekend and came across them. I'm missing some from the set, and wondered if someone could help me track them down. I wouldn't mind doing some converting if they a Mac user could send me :D

    Thanks

    A set of 1000 icons extracted directly from OS X:
    ICO and PNG

    Sorry, Apple. [​IMG]

    If you have no other Icons on the desktop, you can right click on the desktop, Arrange Icons By, uncheck Show Desktop Icons. Only if you have nothing else on the desktop.

    Hehe, as I said earlier though, I'm not into Aqua anymore. Got bored of it after using it for so long. I still have the resources/links if others need them though.

    What other stuff do you have? I still haven't bothered to do the registry hacks for the taskbar icons, which seems more trouble than it's worth.

    If you have anything else, please share!

    The quickest way to replacing system files that affect a major part of the look-and-feel is to use one of the transformation packs available. I've used Flyakite's pack before - it's easy to install or uninstall, and it makes the Aqua feel more complete.

    You already seem to know about the various docks available, so that's one more aspect of it.

    You can emulate the Finder bar of OS X with something like Stardock's ObjectBar, but I've personally never been a fan of either ObjectBar, or even the actual Finder bar in the Mac OS, for that matter. The Windows taskbar suits me much better as far as useability goes, but I threw that in as an alternative if you're into pixel-perfect UI emulation like some people are.

    Finally, you have Samurize and other widget apps to add Konfabulator-like widgets to your desktop.

    Of course, you now also have clones/lookalikes of lots of apps like the Finder, iCal, iChat, iPhoto etc. Aqua-Soft should have everything you need, really, and OSX-e has everything nicely organized.
