Mac OS XP has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 

Mac OS XP is a ShapeShifter theme that changes the entire appearance of your graphical interface in Mac OS X. This theme is a port of the Windows XP Luna, Homestead and Silver appearances. It comes with a Windows XP wallpaper, Safari and Dock custom skins.

What's New

Version 2.5:
  • Updated for Panther.
  • Added all Panther specific elements.
  • Went trough and refined existing elements.
  • Added Safari skins, one for each variation.
  • Each variation now has it's own specific Metal appearance.
  • Inactive titlebars are now opaque. That way it's more true to the original and it might also increase performance a tad..
  • All buttons now have a transparent disabled more...

Requirements

ShapeShifter 1.1 or later

Maybe this is a Tiger issue, but I installed this theme on my G5 and it looked great except for the Finder.

In the Finder, the names in the menu bar were all truncated...odd... something like "Finder Fi... E... Vi... G... W... He..."

I hope this is simply a tiger issue and that an update is in the works. :)

Great theme otherwise!

I don't understand why people hate the Windows XP skin so much.

It's different that's all!

A different style than the Mac.
I own an Ibook and eMac and wouldn't think of changing due to the hell I went through with Windows - BUT hey, this is beautiful IHMO and I've loaded it on my iBook snow.

It looks great, Homestead colors....
Good job, very good.

I've worked on PCs for 13 years and I don't need a reminder of pure Hell. Please do a Mac related one!

I've owned nothing but Macs since 1987. And I have no love for PCs. Nonetheless, this theme offers some nice color and variety compared to a lot of the other droll gray and silver themes out there. This theme still leaves my Mac with an overall Mac feel, and I for one appreciate that the developer created it.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to even installed...must have been the Lord telling me to stay away from anything which even looks like Bill Gates...

I think it's a hoot! Never having owned a PeeCee (and never will) this is a fun way to get a chuckle every time I boot up. Get really crazy and add Safaricon's Windows XP theme and I think all the other reviewers would go epileptic!

I've spent years damning PCs and their creators. I've passed through Linux and now I own a Mac. I'm sooo happy. And seeing any PC related screenshot makes me soooo sick... That's ok. Nice try. Maybe try turning your fair creativity somewhere else? :-)
