http://kde-look.org for kde
http://gnome-look.org for gnome...

the gnome OSX themes tend to be buch better though, kde relies on superKaramber, which i find to be unstable.

KDE will do that out of the box without addons- the option is in the themes control panel (where do you think Apple got the idea?) but the effect is slightly different. You cannot (through the GUI) change how much the icon zooms on mouseover, plus the surrounding 2 to 4 icons do not zoom. Only the icon directly under the mouse will zoom.

Look to KDE 3.4 and the upcoming X.org releases - we're going to start seeing more advanced GUI features, including expose-like functionality in compliant window managers.

engage is probably the closest you'll get. It even does hardware acceleration. It is built on top of the Enlightenment E17 foundation libraries.

Yeah, there are OSC themes for kde and gnome that nulate the whole desktop look and feel... use the search fuctions on those sites.

i believe that most gnome themes use engage which was mentioned above.

engage is made for enlightenment, but will also work in gnome.

I'm tempted to download Kdocker but the KDE dock/panel has really grown on me. I'll wait for that functinality to be rolled i9nto KDE's panel.
