    I've had my desktop looking somewhat like OS X for months now. The background image varies, but I switched it to Leopard's default background for this shot.

    Beware of this script. I tried it and it majorly screwed with compiz-fusion. I had to reinstall it. Also my system fonts were totally changed and I had to reset that.

    They did caution about compiz having to be reinstalled - but not re. the fonts.
    Mrk. didn't seem to have the font issue. Anyway thanks for the cautionary.

    Besides, I'm running with no effects enabled - I get transparency, shadows, icon wobble such, so it's great.

    If there's one thing good about OS X is that Apple does have good graphical designers.

    KDE in its current implementation ain't too shabby either. :)
