Somehow, Mac theme on Windows cannot create the experience like on the real Mac(maybe it's involve the workflow of the OS, which is quite different) and most of them isn't really 100% polish due to limitation of editing.

and finally I got tired of it, and just let it be default Aero (even you the aero Basic one) and focus on...well, get real job done. : D

Well maybe, and it seems that people choose the one they are using, but I don't know... I'm surprised by the result... Everyone keep repeating that MacOS is more professional but look at that poll... People would choose Windows to work ! :)

Maybe Apple should think more about transparency for the next version ^^

I like Mac inpsired themes solely because they look nice... But functionality-wise I prefer Aero.

I'm over all the MAC style themes, there's only a handful of themes i can actually use without being irritated by an imperfection..

I use transparency sometimes and no transparency sometimes, doesn't really matter as long as the vs I'm using is easy on the eyes and not too distracting with its colors

I use Shine2 or soft2 depending on how i'm feeling.

Seeing as i was brought up using macs, i find i cannot use any of the mac themes for windows, as they just do no do the GUI Justice

Going for Aqua and Cocoa as a whole. Windows has never had any visual appeal to me.

i actually use a non-transparent one or even Soft 7 in a darker mode...=)
i find mac mockups annoying and in my opinion once i add a third party theme to a os i can never go back to the default one.

I would use Windows 7. Actually, the transparentcy doesn't really make me distracted. Oh, and also, with a Soft 2.0 theme. ;)

To say fairly, I prefer and use Windows Aero without the transparency. :)

It really depends on if I'm using my Mac or PC I guess. I don't have much of a choice on my Mac... but I personally love transparency when I'm on my PC. Since the transparency is really only on the top when I have everything maximized, it's not like it's really diverting my attention any.

transparent or not.. I don´t care at least you could work with. I am sure that with the 90% of the released windows VS you couldn´t work properly =D
