Dear Viewers!

This deviation is submitted for my newly created group.
I hope this gives a picture about the goal of this group.

So about what I used to have this neat desktop?
Some of the resources are already included in the group, and some are pending approval from their respective creators.

The list includes the following:

The basic mod to make Windows able to use 3rd party visual styles

First and must: Uxtheme Patcher for every Windows by ~Niwradsoft

The visual style itself:

Second: Metallica VS RC with Brushed by ~in-dolly

And the corresponding wallpaper:

Third: Aqua Candy Mult Res by ~whyred

The Dock will be uploaded seperately, if permission is recieved.

The dock theme: Mac Leopard Skin REDONE by ~salasrcp90

The indicator, separator and dock preferences are configured by me, most likely you can't find a preconfigured dock like this.

I highly suggest to use this icon pack for the dock:
Mac OSX Dock Icons: iCon by ~MAGNUMHEARTED


Last, but not least two eyecandys if you are all right with some extra running processes.

To make the Mac taskbar shadow, you'll need:
Taskbar Drop Shadow by ~sweatyfish

Focusin XP, to have the OS X focus border for Windows, but the details are at in-dolly's deviation (a very detailed explanation).

So basically this covers it, stay tuned for the Make-a-Mac 7 tutorial too!

Yep, I tried to find an alternate link, but there is none so far. I think your best bet is 4shared or other file shares...

Already used it for a while, but the current dock's angle is a bit more shallow and that's why I prefer that. Nevertheless, your icon pack is vital for a mac-style dock! Nice!
