This is first time I am using MacBook Pro and so far I liked it.

The one thing it makes me to use, is the Screen Display.


I am hardcore fan of MS and I still feel Windows is much better and powerful than Mac OS.

Since my company has given this to me for office work, I am using it :p


Anyways, I am pretty new to Mac world.

So anyone can give me tips/suggestions to make dis Mac looks more cool and awesome!!


I always love to customize the things. So I rarely used default themes in Windows irrespective of how cool they are :)


So I am waiting for you guys to guide me to love dis Mac more with better looks/themes or anything u want to call it

I am using Maverick as Hackintosh and I find it really awesome to work on. The display of font is very nice and it very easy to work with.

There are a couple of things to do with regards to themes and icons on Mavericks.


First there's LiteIcon by FreeMacSoft http://www.freemacsoft.net/liteicon/


You'll need to either download ICO files(Windows icons) or ICNS files(Mac) for LiteIcon to take hold of them.

If you download from The Iconfactory http://iconfactory.com/home then click the Apple symbol when you download a given set. That'll give you Mac icons to work with.


The other thing is themes - there's the free themes available on DeviantART like the GrainOSX theme.


Or there's Flavours http://flavours.interacto.net/#updates - (costs ~$20 but free to try for a few days) the themes are free so don't be alarmed by the store naming.
