    Not sure if this is the place to post. If not maybe someone can suggest someplace to post.
    I'm looking at the mac interface and man it looks nice. I know for Mac users they can use virtual pc for Macs to use windows but I don't think that you can use virtual pc for windows to use a Mac OS. I prob would never actually buy a Mac (unless PCs or windows become obsolete).
    Window blinds prob has it so windows can look like the mac but window blinds for some reason do not work on my comp.
    Any suggestions anybody?

    Windowblinds has some nice skins but I find it a bit heavy and buggy. For a Mac-like skin try Aston. I think you can still download it from Majorgeeks.com.
    You'll have to search for the Mac skin, though as it's not standard. Thre's a couple of Mac style skins but one in particualr will give you what you seem to be after. It has the Mac wallpaper and the icons arranged at the bottom which 'morph' the same way the Mac ones do. If I can find which CD I copied it to i'll post it. No promises though as i've just moved house (very messy).
    Otherwise, when you have the program, do a search for Aston skins.
    Hope this helps :)

    Then if u got some cash , if suggest u try StylesXp or WinStyle(by starkdock, WindowsBlind thingy) , there is a very popular AQUA themem running around the net which u an find easiliy for both the programs , makes your pc looks like MAC .


    IF u got some time and need perfection , try litestep , u can modify as per u want , though it needs some major hangbanging i warn or as suggested to u try ASTON ,it's very good too

    but try takin the windows challenge , u will get a hang of it man

    sorry guys. I should've been more clear about my question. What I really wanted to know was if there was a way to purchase the Mac OS and run it on a PC or maybe have a virtual OS using something like virtual pc running on a PC. In other words I would like to learn more about the Mac OS without actually buying a Mac system. I shouldn't even have mentioned windows blinds. I was just babbling. But thanks for all the reply. Not a bad idea since Mac interface is very cool.

    thanks. looks like what i'm looking for. but i'll need some kind of rom card and roms. What's a rom card? is it something like adding a pci card? Maybe i should read the whole article before asking questions.
