    Flyakite has finally released his popular OS X Transformation Pack for use with XP SP2. He has also updated his SP1 pack for those who haven't upgraded to the newest service pack.

    What is FlyakiteSP2?
    FlyakiteSP2 is a transformation pack. It will transform the look of an ordinary Windows XP SP2 system to resemble the look of Mac OS X. The installer simply automates the process or replacing critical system files, setting registry tweaks, and installing extras such as cursors, sounds, visual styles, etc.

    In case you are not happy with the results of FlyakiteSP2, everything is completely removable. Just run the uninstaller from the Start Menu or from Add/Remove Programs.


    Screenshots and a download link can be found here.

    Flyakite's packs are the best ones, in my opinion.
    I'd use it if I still had that OS X UI emulation craze like I had a few months ago. Trouble is it got boring too fast. [​IMG]

    i don't understand why people want to make their OS look like Mac OS X, when they know it will never have the same speed, stability, and the same tools.

    Second, it still looks ugly as ****, because a lot of the stuff does not match the way it works on a Mac.

    Oh please, don't start. What next? The oh-so-common "Get a Mac" tagline? [​IMG]
    "It will never have the same speed, stability"...haha, good one.

    Good lord, everything is turned upside down!

    No menu, no right click for display properties. I feel like Alice in BizarroLand. :eek:

    Can someone tell me how to access the menus and control panels? hehe :(

    y'know that's the funny thing...I've never had a "stability" problem with xp...(sounds like someone's been watching too many of apple's switch ads...) On the other hand, I have had a couple of imacs lock up on me.....and I don't use macs that often..lol

    and...for the life of me I've never sat here and said to myself "Man. I wish that was out for pc...those lucky mac people..."




    yes...but have you seen the **** microsoft blessed us with originally? lol

    Yeah, and anybody who uses a certain amount of common sense and decent hardware would have the same experience.
    It gets on my nerves when Mac and UNIX users try to pull off that stupid stability argument. We're not living in the days of Windows ME anymore, people.
