Man this going quick, now for the hard question should it have grrrrrr KDE, since KDE is more apple oriented? and I'm at a crossroads with the 2.17.1 or 3.0.1
I thought Gnome was the Apple-alike DE; don't they follow the same interface guidelines etc?

BTW here's an article I read recently on making Xfce look like OSX:
http://xubuntublog.wordpress.com/2008/02/15/design-your-own-desktop-with-xfce-44-part-2/

EDIT: Maybe you could use Wobbly NOP as a starting point, as it already has Xfce and Compiz-Fusion.

Hi Guys

What I'm planning on doing is basically trying to do it with the puppy way, Heart included!
Meaning that it works on older hardware, and that its universal and take low system resources, With that in mind. I'll have to try my best at performance.

When I was trying a name out, and said "OS P" well the "P" could stand for puppy or pear, Like having a pear shaped fruit enstead of a apple shaped fruit. Really I don't want to get sued for this.
Plus really who in there right mind would let someone copyright an apple in the USA from a Canadian first found fruit. Well here's what i've found out about the real mac. But thats not what i've heard, It was first found around 50 km east from there. Theres even a plaque, etc And I'm from the area:) So we are taught this in schoolt.
Anyways a little histroy thats is 90%true,LOL.
Dundela, Iroquois, Ontario - The Apple Macintosh logo, one of the most recognizable symbols in the world, has its roots in a chance discovery on small farm in Dundela, Ontario in 1811. While clearing his land near Prescott, John McIntosh stumbled across several apple seedlings, which he transplanted. One flourished and produced what we know today as the McIntosh Red Apple – or the simply, the ‘Mac’ (Apple changed the spelling for its computer systems). John’s son Allen reproduced the tree through grafting and spread it throughout the region. Although damaged by a fire, the original tree produced fruit until 1906. The more than 300,000 McIntosh apple trees now growing in North America, and all the others in the world, are decedents of this single tree. Two monuments commemorating John McIntosh and his apple, now stand in Dundela. At the nearby Smyth’s Apple Orchard, which has 30,000 trees, visitors can taste a Mac grown in its birthplace.

Sorry if this has already been mentioned ( I'm one a quick break) but I recently found this Xfce theme and icons.
http://www.xfce-look.org/content/show.php/MacOS-X+Aqua+Theme?content=13548
The icon bar looks like Engage which has already been used by someone with Xfce n the forum thread "my puppy is more gorgeous...etc......."

Looks good prit1
I would change browsers to Firefox and add this theme
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6236
and then this extension
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1951
then package it up,
I would of done it sooner but I've been real busy with other puppy related projects.Smile

Ps I've been building a lightweight ICEWM window manager that could also work well for this, It just needs to get Blinky working.

@Ttuuxxx:

I will install firefox and the addons/themes you have mentioned. I have the firefox that you had packaged with flash. I will use that.

Yeah it would have been excellent, if you would be able to finish the small icewm package. I am currently using Ezpup to get Icewm. And this really will make the output iso size around 110-115M.

Also, I have used wallpapers and icons from different locations from the internet. I have not clearly checked the licenses. I dont know if this will cause any problems in packaging and distributing. Have never done this. Smile

Well This project is a bit risky to say the most, You would be best to get the right licenses like gpl, also when you install firefox, let it update, just encase it isn't the latest version:) takes about 5 minutes.
when remastering you'll have to manually move the /root/.mozilla <-- hidden folder so that the theme and plugins carry over.
Also I would install mu's gtk theme chooser and have "Glossy P" as the default theme.
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Desktop-Tools/Gtk-Themeselectors05.pup
and finally I would install libquicktime
http://slackware.rol.ru/linuxpackages//Slackware-12.0/Library/libquicktime/libquicktime-1.0.0-i486-2gds.tgz
oh ya I think there's a quicktime theme for xmms
plus I have someone looking into the blinky thing on my icewm window manager project.

- Have you thought of removing Seamonkey with petbegone?
- What is the libquicktime for? Can gxine not play quicktime files? I've never found one that Mplayer can't play...

If Prit1 finds it too difficult, because doing a custom puppy variant is very complicated and time consuming, as soon as I'm done my icewm project, probably in 1-2 days maybe sooner, I'll start on it.

I have released my initial effort of Macosx looking Puppy in this thread.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=27209

Do let me know what you think in that thread.

Thanks a lot to Ttuuxxx for the small icewm package. This ISO is less than 100MB.

Don't know if it really looks like Apple OSX, though it looks pretty nice and has 'OSX' in its name. So, I'm assuming it could fit into that request...

Yara OSX by fmiguel

I'm using it on my 2nd machine at home.
