ThemeChanger works perfectly in 10.2, 10.3, and 10.4. In fact, I wrote Iridium for ThemeChanger. You can only use themes developed for your OS. You cannot use Panther Themes on Tiger (or Tiger Themes on Panther). So, since most themers are developing for ShapeShifter, opensource solutions like ThemeChanger get left out in the cold. It is possible to convert some themes to a themechanger-friendly format. If there is enough interest, maybe I could help get a TC compatible theme site going.

That would be GREAT Stephen! Not that Iridium isn't nice, variety is a good thing.

works great for me on panther. from 10.3 through 10.3.8 I have had no issues at all. I just wish it worked with more theme files.

tested/applied with mac os x 10.2.8: slim, functional, (as far as i could see) secure: simply smart, .. preserve the 20$ (you'd spend for shapeshifter ;) and take this, .. if you like these things

// i used themechanger to apply the "aqua extreme" theme .. which gives jaguar a taste of puma and looks nice even with just thousands of colors; conserving some leaking system ressources on my 1st gen. ibook.

// could be even more nice as a system preference pane; but ok -- 5 stars anyway
