    Mac look or plain old ubuntu?

    So I was browsing gnome-look.org, just seeing what they have. I came across that the most downloaded themes were usually the mac os themes, but personally I don't like the look of the mac interface, and I actually like the look of the original ubuntu. So how many of you like mac themes over ubuntu's and vice versa.

    I tried it. For some odd reason, it lagged my Linux Box. Not sure why though. Anyways, I like the look of ubuntu. It's beautiful.

    Ubuntu is ugly and a member of the rebel alliance... Take it away!

    I personally don't like themes of other OSs, if I've chosen to use Ubuntu, I don't want it to look like other OS. But everybody has an opinion about it.

    I use my own theme, neither Ubuntu's standard nor any other OS's.

    I've changed my theme today (it's attached), a few hours ago, this time it's kind of Mac'ish look, tho.

    One of the great things about Ubuntu (and Linux, in general) is that you can customize it to whatever you want, just take a look at the screenshots thread, no other OS can have such a variety of looks.

    A lot of people like the OSX interface because its elements and widgets are very well-designed. Look at the scrollbar to start with, it looks like a piece of blue glass!

    It does look sort of mac'ish, but hey at least you're using what you've made for yourself.

    The theme, as in colors and buttons/icons, or the functionality? I like the mac functionality- dock, global menu, scale (expose, pronounce expozay), etc..

    My theme is just normal gnome themes I've downloaded. I particularly don't like the mac window close/minimize/maximize buttons.
