BBX Mercury X is a ShapeShifter theme that changes the entire grahpical appearance of Mac OS X. This theme is a futuristic grey and dark blue theme that contains appskins, desktop pictures and sound.
What's New
Version 1.5:
  • All desktops are now bundled inside the guiKit. If you choose one of the patterns, be sure to go into the Desktop prefPane afterwards and rechoose the "Tile" option.
  • Added appSkins for iCal, TextEdit and QuickTime.
  • Added the Equalizer button to the VLC appSkin.
  • Added the AirTunes button and Party Shuffle selection bar to the iTunes appSkin.
  • Added the Bluetooth button to the Address Book appSkin.
  • Customized the list and list alternating rows background color and the list selection color.
  • The selected segment tab is now in the dark material with white text.
  • Reworked the way the Metal windows are rendered which means that the titlebar text is always placed above the gloss. This also affects metal drawers and iChat invitation bubbles which will both look better.
  • Fixed the inactive state of the Finder path button.
  • Changed the way to choose between the different styles of titlebar glyphs. Before it was decided by changing between Blue and Graphite in General preferences, now it's decided by which theme variation you install.
  • Pruned Aqua elements to decrease file size.

I really like this theme. I'm using its OSX Style Glyphs variation under 10.3.7 and 10.3.8 and it works great except for what seems to be some minor glitches: it is not consistent on every app. (doesn't seem to work 100% with Mozilla, for instance) and when I've a window in list mode and drag something over it to drop it into an enclosed folder, each folder/file it passes on darkens as though it was selected and remains so.

You might want to option-click on the download link. I didn't and ended up having to force-quit Safari because it was trying to present the download as a web page. :/

WOW! I'm on OS 10.2 and this theme still rocks! The iTunes skin is the coolest I've seen yet. The menus are beautiful and...just get it already!
