Question Classic Macintosh theme for XFCE?


I am curious, is there a way to theme the XFCE desktop (I am running Fedora 19) to look, behave, and even sound just like the classic Macintosh (ala Mac OS 7)? If so, how?

Thanks!

I didn't even know there's an XFCE theme manager and themes. I have already found a "platinum" theme that looks a lot like the classic Mac OS and will try it out. Thank you for your quick responses!
