Although Windows has dominated the operating system market for many years already, there is still quite a number of people that prefers Mac over Windows because of advantages such as stability, lack of virus, secure because it is built from Unix and of course the Mac itself looks beautiful. The operating system known as OS X has always looked awesome too and when Windows Vista was released, you would have heard numerous times that a lot of the newer Windows interface is copied from Mac OS X.

Instead of just changing the Windows color, sound, screen saver and wallpaper like what most of other themes do, this skin pack comes with 3rd party utilities to emulate the unique features found only in Mac OS X.
The installation of this skin pack is really easy as everything is automated including the patching of uxtheme.dll in order to use 3rd party visual style. Simply download the installer, run it and restart your computer when setup has completed. One thing you should take of during installation is to uncheck all 3 boxes when it asks to install IncrediBar which is not needed for this Mountain Lion Skin Pack to work.
The Skin Pack Menu automatically runs whenever Windows is booted up. The menu allows you to refresh icon cache, reload the skin pack if you’ve accidentally uninstalled some of the required utilities and uninstall the skin pack by clicking on the icons. Generally this menu is not needed during startup and can be disabled from automatically launching by deleting the SkinPackMenu shortcut from the Startup folder in Start Menu.
Although this Mountain Lion Skin Pack is so far the most complete theme, but do take note that it loads an additional 10 processes which requires additional memory usage and more time to bootup. After uninstalling the theme, the Taskbar will end up at the top instead of bottom. To move it down, simply right click on the Taskbar, select “Lock the taskbar” to uncheck the option and drag it bottom of the screen.

A recent source code leak reveals Microsoft built and tested a number of divergent themes for Windows XP, with one closely resembling Apple's legendary Aqua GUI.
Among a cache of Windows XP source code files that leaked online Friday are a variety of unused, sometimes incomplete, UI themes Microsoft created for its early 2000s operating system, reports The Verge.
One theme, dubbed 'Candy,' will be very familiar to anyone who has used a Mac running Mac OS X 10.0. A number of UI elements closely resemble or match Apple's Aqua theme, a fact perhaps most apparent in shiny, rounded window buttons designed to mimic droplets of water.
Aqua debuted at the Macworld Conference & Expo in 2000 and made its way onto Mac a year later. The theme uses a unique combination of depth through shadows, bright colors, translucency, rounded interactive assets and textures to create the appearance of liquid or gel sitting on metal plates.
According to The Verge, 'Candy' was present in early source code for Windows XP, with developers using the skin as a placeholder as they built out the operating system's theme engine. Files refer to the theme as a 'Whistler skin with eye candy,' and are marked as 'for internal use only,' the report says. Microsoft referred to Windows XP as 'Whistler' prior to its market debut.
The Redmond, Wash., software giant ultimately landed on a blue, green and silver theme called Luna. While it incorporated shadows and gradients to indicate depth, Luna lacked the translucency that Aqua provided, making it more akin to traditional Windows versions.
Apple and Microsoft have for decades battled in the desktop operating system space, with each company looking to outdo the other on features, capabilities and style with every new release. As the most prominent user-facing element, themes were often viewed as a key differentiator. In recent years, however, the focus has turned to more functional aspects like reliability, security and performance.
