i'm personally a bit tired of both :P

you know, how many mac/LH shots you've seen in the last years??

if i need to go for 1 i would go for latest longhorn's aero, light green (herb) looks pretty good combined with transparency effects :)

I'd pick Longhorn over OSX if I had to go with just the basics.

I still say that there's no replacement for AveDesk... the showcase function is just phenomenal! (See march desktops)

I think the OSX theme only looks good on a Mac. I mean, without the crazy cool visual effects, the style is nothing. Same thing with Longhorn. Being just a theme without the respective effects makes it nothing more than a cheap mask. That's just what I believe, though...

P.S. I'm just running XP Pro with the MCE2005 Energy Blue Theme. I've messed around with others, but stuff directly from Microsoft seems to work the best. Sucks, but it's just the way it is.

Windows Classic for me. I don't like those memory-consuming GUIs.

I like Aero Glass, if only it didn't take so much system resources. When Longhorn/Vista MCE comes out, can't wait to "port" over Aero Diamond.

sorry but longhorn has to be one of the worst "official" desktop themes i've seen. i thought i was looking at a newbie themer's first release the first time i saw it.

I use classic myself. I use an OS to get stuff done, not for something pretty to look at.

I like longhorns style

The apple one is good but they only give you a choice of Blue and Graphite

@snively - can you make a better one for me and i'll use it and i'll submit it to MS and they can use it

I've had my first crack at Vista (the operating system formerly known as Longhorn :P), and I'd have to say that I most definately like the layout of Vista a lot better. The ability to quicky move to another subfolder is golden! Not to mention, that some text on the screen describing the window is probably more useful than a tiny thumbnail.
