    I dislike the default ubuntu look but there are many good themes available on gnome-look. I do like the default kubuntu look but only kde4.3 The old dark theme was a bit weird.

    All this just reminds me how lucky we all are to be able to make our systems look exactly as we want them to look. Try doing that with Windows and see just how little you can do in comparison.

    Aren't we lucky people!

    I change themes almost daily. So I'd say it translates as "I love the ubuntu use-any-theme more than just using a mac theme."

    But I love the mac skins for firefox.

    The brown look is pretty ugly but as seems to be a common theme I love that I can customise Ubuntu to look however I like.

    I personally use AWN so it is a bit "Mac-ish" but I have Vista-like buttons and transparent panels. I don't like the brushed metal look of Mac.....

    There has been an overdose of 'Mac'ish look everywhere ... personally I would love to see a green ensemble. Something like what Apple has done with grey...IMO its should be very easy on eyes. I hope I made sense.

    I was using a green theme until a few days ago, I've changed back to it and took a screenshot, the clock (top right) was not like that, tho. It's attached.

So how many of you like mac themes over ubuntu's and vice versa.
    i have the dust sand theme that kind of resembles the mac one, but it seems better to me.

    icons , pointer etc are not mac related at all

    I've never liked the Mac look. Quite sterile.

    I've basically "plain old ubuntu" except the top menu is on the right side and transparent and the bottom menu is on the bottom and slightly blue but mostly transparent.
    The default ubuntu theme is pretty unbearable.. what a shade of brown! uch! It should be more like it is on the sign in page and the splash screen. Those colours are fine.
