There are 10s of thousdands of free softwares you can get by download. You can view and download them by opening the program "Synaptic Package Manager" or by clicking add/remove programs

For themes for ubuntus user interface (caled GNOME) check out www.gnome-look.org

one time i spent a whole day trying to make fedora core 4 look like osx. what a waist of my time that was. So i installed dreamlinux and it looks similar to osx, so that's what i'd do instead fo going through the trouble of finding the right themes, and icons.

You can also use the default theme Nimbus of Solaris 10 on Ubuntu though you'll have to work a little hard to find it. Although I was trying to upload it here but alas, the size is too big. It is a very nice theme. I cannot say what you feel about it but I definitely like it.

Wait wait wait... you confused mac with ubuntu??? You some kinda retard or something?? You can always search online for screenshots.. how could you not figure that out on your own? You don't know how to use a search engine?

Seriously? Aside from your atrocious spelling, and absolute terrible writing ability, are you completely ignorant of linux or what? There is soo much software for linux (including the ubuntu distro).. I am even willing to bet money that there is more software for linux than for microsoft (definitely more than crappy apple). Hmm.. I definitely recommend you use apple though, because you obviously know nothing about linux, and have trouble using the internet, search engines, and dictionaries. Hey! Those are exact characteristics of people who use macs! You would fit right in!

That's incorrect, there is more software available for Windows than for any other operating system.

well it's true. windows has been the dominant OS for a very long time, and if you look at a lot of the linux software, it's also available for windows and mac, most of the time.

if you were a company that made software for consumers, wouldn't you write it for the most used operating system? Windows has been dominant for a very long time. There are plenty of applications that will literally let you do anything. There's everything from little apps to full blown software suites. Just because most software for linux is open source, it does not mean that there's more of it.

I think you're confusing commercial and open source software development. Your argument for reaching the most consumers is only valid for commercial development, as the goal is usually money. Open source developers use whatever operating system suits them best, which usually tends to be Linux. Also, open source development usually progresses at a much faster rate than commercial development, so I'm willing to bet that Linux has a larger application library. That doesn't necessarily mean that Linux software is better, just that there's more of it.

>there is definately more linux software than mac software

That's a vague statement at best. The latest version of Mac OS X is officially Unix-certified, and can run Linux software just like any other *nix system can (assuming it's open source, which it usually is).

I think you need to learn how to spell the word "retarded"
Don't call people retards unless you yourself are retarded. Then it's okay.

Okay. Assuming I really am a retard, please point out where jbennet said that there is more software written for Linux than OS X.

Since you don't seem to be understanding the point I'm trying to get at, let me try another way. Mac OS X is officially certified as Unix. Since it's Unix, it can run Unix software. Now do you get it? It doesn't have to be written on a Macintosh to be able to be considered "Mac software".

This really isn't a valid point. Even though Mac is UNIX, most Linux and BSD software does require a seperate Mac port.

i understand that, but that unix and linux software was not made specifically for mac, so it shouldn't count as such.

>Even though Mac is UNIX, most Linux and BSD software does require a seperate Mac port.
Why? It's a Unix system, POSIX-compliant, has the X window system, and it can compile the same software that any *nix system can. People tend to be lazy on Mac OS X and request pre-made binaries, but that doesn't mean it's not as capable of compiling something.

So if *nix software was not specifically made for Linux, then it shouldn't count as Linux software?

How come FreeBSD can run linux apps natively

>How come FreeBSD can run linux apps natively
The FreeBSD kernel has a Linux-compatibiliy layer which allows it to run Linux applications at native speeds (similar to Wine, except with almost perfect support, and built right into the kernel). Sadly, when Apple borrowed bits of the FreeBSD kernel for Xnu (the kernel for Darwin), they left out that compatibility layer.

Aside from your atrocious spelling, and absolute terrible writing ability

I doubt English is his native language. You try writing in a language you don't know very well and you too will have that exact same problem. DaniWeb does not require people to be English majors or native English speakers. I've seen people born and raised here in St Louis MO that can't spell either.

But there is a difference between writing in an unfamiliar language and being just plain lazy. When words like 'u' and 'ppl' are used, no attempt at grammar (simply being one long run-on sentence) it tells me that the person who wrote it didn't care one bit.
