    yes, there's probably a way to make it look like OS X. Check out www.kde-look.org for themes, splash screens and such. That'll probably one...

    wow cool so many of them...
    i know Apple is Unix and that Apple wrote the skin/theme/kde what not...

    but i know that it is possible to write something like that for Linux and WIndows, but since i'm new to Linux i don't really know all the cool sites for these skins/theme/kde...

    anyways thanks for the links

    Small point of contention.

    Apple is not Unix no more than Unix is Apple. They are a far offcry from Unix with a proprietary OS.

    Ok I'm done

    All is well now /rantover
