My WinVista looks like a Mac :)

Hi. In Dec/january, working with Zemoga, I got a Mac. I loved the OSX. hated not having right-clic on the trackpad, the different keys for common Office tasks, different default behaviours, but it was a nice experience.

I prefer Win though, and since XP is so nineties, I upgraded to Vista busoiness 64 bit.

In order to be more Mac-alike, I found some tools very nice:

ObjectDock




It emulates MacOSX toolbar very well..... I like it, and I'll like it more when it supports X64 OS

Switcher
This tool makes switching application just like in Mac. small thumbnails of all your windows, and you sleect the one yo like....

with these apps, I feel I have a Next-get OS UI!!!
Let's see what Win7 can add to this....
