 Hey man, can you update the finder bar link, it's telling me that it's no longer available. Thanks!

tater98er (author)2010-05-05

how did you get the back buttons and stuff to look like a mac. the finder link is broke!

GreatSage (author)2009-08-07

The finder program wont work on my computer. Can it run on vista?

GreatSage (author)GreatSage2009-08-10

Ok, nvm. I found another way to make a finder.

RKlauncher is much better than rocket dock, and it comes with a lot of leopard themed reflective icons, so the dock looks much more realistic.

I like the settings in rocket dock better than RKlauncher, and you can always download icons off the internet. this is rocket dock with with some new icons and a new theme

ben_k (author)steven932009-03-13

you can use icons, themes, and docklets you download for rocket dock with any dock application. I know, because I've used and made themes that work on both.

steven93 (author)ben_k2009-03-13

I know

Also, there is leftsider, which puts the close, minimize, and maximize buttons on the left side of the window, like in macs

steven93 (author)ben_k2009-03-13

It looks nice, but it has issues, if you really want a good leftsider use true transparency with the leopardxp theme you can find them here http://www.osx-e.com/

Looks like if you just type in the main URL http://landvermesser.tripod.com/, then you can select each item for download. You may want to update your instructable so more people like me don't get confused. :)

Every download link beginning with http://landvermesser.tripod.com doesn't work. I get a page stating "This file is hosted by Tripod, a Lycos®Network Site, and is not available for download.
