Mac4Lin on Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04)


Hi guys,

I would like to transform my Linux desktop to look much like Mac OSX, and i found something called Mac4Lin. Would anyone comment on theirs/ others experiences with Mac4lin - i.e, does it make the machine slow and/ or cause general instability of installed software? Please feel free to recommend other software that you know of.

I am using HP Compaq 6715b notebook with AMD Turion 64x2 TL-58 CPU and ATI Radeon X1250 graphics card. RAM is 2Gigs.

Best Regards,

Lloyd Dube.

Triumph: I used Mac4Lin on Ubuntu about 6 months ago. It looks and feels amazing especially with compiz-fusion. It doesn't slow down or make your PC less stable lol. I highly recommend it.

Triumph: have you seen compiz-fusion in action? There is one feature called scale which organizes cluttered windows out in front of you. F12 activates the equivalent feature on OS X (I don't know what it's called).
