Windows 7: New theme project!

New theme project!

So I just decided to take on a daunting new project:

This new project is the MAC OSX theme. (for the purpose of this screenshot--which went on Facebook as well, in my "computer stuff" picture journal--I disabled the transparency, but just know I do have glass transparency on the window shells)




Anyway, I picked this theme up on DeviantArt.com and am soon going to start customizing it to take on a new form of awesomeness. Any ideas for what I should do?

I already have ideas for a few small things, like the start menu background and shell appearance, removing the x's and -'s from the top right corner buttons in navigation windows and replacing it with glowing buttons, etc...

Thank you! I'm really looking forward to starting on this one.

The battery is a gadget, if that's what you're talking about. Although, for fun, I'm completely redesigning and reprogramming it, for some JavaScript practice

Benjamin, I hope you got written permission to modify that theme to redistribute. Also it'd be best to link to the original theme as well.

I'm not modifying the theme to redistribute; I'm modifying it for myself only. The battery gadget I will email the author to ask for permission to distribute a modified version.

Ah, well. Any chance I could still have a link to the original?

Apparently the place I downloaded it from doesn't have it anymore; I'll put it on Mediafire for you later today and post a link to the download.
