Why would you want to have a Windows application look like a Mac application? This is just a question not a put down of the Mac OS (look at my specs).

As a Mac and Windows user I like the idea that both have their own look and feel.

If you're cool with not being able to close them from the window border, I could make something to remove the entire border, I think. I don't know whether the feature I would use is able to work on explorer windows, but it may.
