Description:

This is my first contribution to gnome-files.

As it's evident from both the highest rated and most-downloaded contributions' list, most of gnome users are desperately trying to imitate Mac OS X beautiful interface (and who can blame them?).

In my case, I've tried to make it look like a Mac OS 9, legendary also and with a different kind of beauty... hope you'll like this!

Wallpapers used in screenshots:
1- "Barber shop", found in
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=32282

2- Mac Mosaic classic,
got it from my Mac disks, I cannot publish them as it's proprietary software.

Metacity Theme:
"Classic", found in
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Classic?content=46208

GTK 2.x Theme:
Clearlooks-Platinum
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Clearlooks-Platinum?content=46252

ICON SET:
So far, it's the famous the Tango icon set... which obviously isn't quite a match... :(
I've looked for some icons from the Mac OS 9 or look-alikes, but no results.. maybe some of the fine artists out there will take this as a project! :)



Comment please!

Note:
I uploaded this as a screenshot because I'm NOT the author neither of the gtk style, nor the window decorations.
SO I DONT TAKE ANY CREDIT FOR THEM.

Great style plasmatron. It's nice to see oldies around here, especially with the more recent content & concepts.

malwk - the font is Chicago.

The font used in the screenshots for application menu and desktop is "pix Chicago", which is a Chicago look-alike which can be freely downloaded at:

for a more detailed list of the Mac OS 9 fonts, see (for example, but not only)

putting the links in the description, I think, doesn't breach anything, especially since, I think, these are already on gnome-look.

Instead, putting the links to everything in the description is a good act as we then can all know what you use.

Ok, thank you for your comment, I respect what you said.

However, I don't share your opinion.
Even though everything is in gnome, the links are useful in order to save users' time looking for them. I didn't include them up-front, because I didn't think anyone will be that interested; but I'm doing it now.

So as you say, this is the good act I'm performing today. Hopefully, this will get me to heaven! :)
