Your PC wants to be a Mac, really.

Listener Shooby sent me the following info on a program that turns WinXP into OS X, at least visually. It look pretty cool, but it tweeks a lot of stuff, DLLs and registry included so use at your own risk. Also the website is really cool. It looks and operates just like OS X, but in a browser. Amazing.

There’s a program for us PC users who are really into macs or are saving up to get a mac called flyakite. Basically, it replaces DLL’s and other system files to pretty much make your pc like a mac. It’s on version 2.0 right now, and I have to say, IT’S FLIPPING AWESOME! I took a screenshot and attached it for you to see. I’m using it to get used to using a dock and mac interface and stuff before I get my powerbook in June, I suggest all PC mac enthusiasts use it too!

    That’s an unbelievable site. I’ve seen it all before as random javascript snippets, but never put together so well in one site and so completely functional.
