    If you want OS X look, use OS X
    It's a pretty stable and beatiful OS


    Nobody wants to imitate a different OS currently in Linux, we want to be unique and such projects (imitate OS X or Windows) are not welcome

    Last thing, I don't want to be rude, but if you want a DE designed to look like OS X, code it yourself and don't come demanding one.
    Well, excuse me. First of all, I DO use OS X but find linux more flexible with a wider array of drivers and an easier to code for feel.

    If you're too closed-minded to 'welcome' Linux Distros made to make transitioning easier then I'll go elsewhere that does, it's all you had to say.

    One last thing, I wasn't demanding anything. I was ASKING if a distro ALREADY EXISTING was MADE like that with a particular intention in mind. It's plain rude to demand a whole OS project for myself and it's also rude to assume I'm such without giving a chance to clarify.

    But I guess the image of these forums guru's are so easily shattered they must close threads before any kind of response can be given to their rudeness.

    First, I'm NOT a moderator thus I CANNOT lock your thread, I was looking forward for your reply and got surprised when I saw it locked.

    No, I don't hate Linux distros made to make transitioning easier, I'm using Ubuntu right now, don't take it personal, I just said that this kind of projects are often not welcomed by the community not myself and usually get abandoned (see XPde)

    One last thing, I wasn't demanding anything. I was ASKING if a distro ALREADY EXISTING was MADE like that with a particular intention in mind. It's plain rude to demand a whole OS project for myself and it's also rude to assume I'm such without giving a chance to clarify.
    Sorry If I understood incorrectly, my english is sometimes poor and I interpreted your post in a non-correct way

    The Linux Guru thing is just designated by number of posts on the forums and means nothing, at least for myself, I'm just a Linux user and I have a lot to learn still

    hi AnalogMan,

    It was me who Locked your last thread
    if you are plaining to Transition from OS X to Linux, you should accept Linux as it is. Linux/Windows/OS X are unique in there own ways.
    if you want OS X look and feel in Linux, a lot of themes and Icons sets have been developed.
    Juan Pablo's reply looked perfect to me and i locked that thread.

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
