Mac OS X Leopard Msstyle

author alang


This is the final version of my Mac OS X Leopard Msstyle
It has 3 versions:
Transparent Space taskbar
Flat taskbar
Plastic Unified toolbar

I tried to make the scrollbarbuttons to be more original when they are clicked, and the systray icons when clicked they behave like in OS X.

There are programs to make the taskbar truly transparent. I use TClokc Light. Not only can it make the taskbar transparent, it can make your clock look like a Mac.

skin looks great but i causes a really big problem in Total Commander. Tabs width is at least two times bigger than in any other skin. instead of having all tabs in two rows i got them in four! and the size of the font hadn’t changed. can anyone help me with this problem?

This is one of the best designed and most complete Styles I have come across. Not only does it work simply and easily for XP (just double click and away we go) but it is a well thought out thoroughbred design between the two os’s. It doesn’t just try to be OSX, the Unified form combines the best of both.

Thank you so much for your hard work!

I got Resedit and rounded the corners of the taskbar, i know this isn’t how leopard is anymore, but i rather liked it that way. I also have been trying to work on your text alignment issues in buttons, if the font were just a point or two smaller it would look a bit better and wouldn’t clip off the button as much.

All in all GREAT work, thank you very much. Its a shame its XP only, but thats inevitable.

PS I also found that a blue grey taskbar selection color was a bit better than the bright blue. The blue is great for an alert task bar color, but is painfully distracting when its blue all the time, hindering the smoothness of the bar.

again, thanks

The window maximize and minimize buttons color and/or behaviour are inverted…
