Which visual style do you prefer when you WORK ? 

210 deviants said Windows Aero (transparent), to have a better look on all the different windows you use
73 deviants said Mac OS X Aqua (non-transparent), to stay focus on the windows you're using right now

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
I think this is just gonna be about what OS people prefer. :P
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.
using soft7 with transparency. tried some mac os like themes, but always swithed back to transparency after couple of minutes :-)

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
Doesnt matter I use anything and can work with anything.

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.
