salimma's Journal: Tribute to Apple graphics programmers 2

Journal by salimma

Having used the full registered version of Stardocks' WindowFX for the past two days, I must admit to having new-found respect for Apple's graphics guru.

Together with ObjectDock I have a desktop that has almost as many bells and whistles as Mac OS X. Only it's slow as molasses, and applications are more prone to crashing. The experience on an iBook 600MHz with the now-ancient OS X 10.1 was better than on a P4/2.4/nVidia GeForce 4MX !

Of course, what I'm *really* waiting for is Keith Packard's new X Server. About time Unix desktop computing gets a facelift, and this from the guy that brings you XRENDER :)

Tribute to Apple graphics programmers

  • To see non-open windows GUI tweaks using icons normally associated with Linux desktop enviroments. I beleive the Noia and Crystal themes [kdelook.org] are used.
    • No kidding. My Windows desktop now looks exactly like my Linux one - Ximian's Industrial theme and icon set.

      I wonder whether the theme makers should not at least remove the copyrighted images though ..
