Custom icons? Darker theme? Repositioning the dock, or hiding it altogether? Dock transparency level? Removing or adding items to the "start" menu? Weather widget on home screen?

If so, then that's freaking impressive.

You can do most, but not all. You can change to a darker theme, but no custom icons. You can hide the dock and reposition it to the sides or bottom, but not top. And you can't change its transparency--the dock just looks more or less transparent with each OSX release. The widgets screen is its own area, which you have to swipe left one screen to see.

>using a dock

Docks are nigger technology. Niggers require a completely picture-based system, because selecting from a text-based list requires reading and is confusing, and it needs to be there looking like an unsightly mess just like their project, because if it's hidden they'll forget it's there, and then chimp-out, and start robbing, raping and murdering decent menu using white people. All because they wanted to text one of their hoes but got angry when they couldn't figure out how.

Another dangerous piece of software to force upon them is a spell-checker. Spelling is for "cracka ass honkies whistle click click whistle whistle click, muthafucka/nigga, knowutimsayin?" The Zulu war was caused by a shipment of dictionaries "falling off a truck" in the middle of one of their traditional African housing projects, and when old Sambo saw them, they immediately went homicidal, and wanted to destroy all aspects of civilized, Christian culture. In the end the British had to send in shipment after shipment of watermelons and chitterlings, until the dastardly savages forgot what they were doing, and went back to robbing, raping, and killing each other instead.

To make a long story short here, you don't want to be a nigger do you? Would you want your children being niggers? Of course not, so knock this dock nonsense off.

the dock is a nice paradigm (although OSX's dock is slightly worse than the NeXT-style dock usage wise)
but I have a shitton of issues with how OSX's UI works and looks
and its flat look is appealing, but kind of crap

also, it won't ever look as nice as 10.4 ever again -- which admittedly looks a bit dated, but it's definitely quite pretty

>Posting your decade old shilling chart
>>

tried and true, friend.

cause there's still no system wide scripting, standard DE, easily customizable interfaces (inb4 just code the entire DE yourself) or even a fucking system-wide dictionary.

yes OSX attracts people because it looks pretty fucking good. but where it really shines is how feature-rich it is by default.

DE's can be customized, maybe Unity is making it difficult but that's so far from "most DE's" that it's not even funny. Also OS X doesn't have a standard DE which you chose, it has a DE which was decided for you no matter what you feel about it.

And what exactly are you trying to do with scripts that you can't do in Linux?
>>
>>51463069
Yes, I learned all about it when I accidentally walked into an Apple store.
>>
>>51463379

I dunno, that's Gnome's primary concern. Making the edges rounded just right, making the buttons just the right size, etc. That's also why Gnome is officially the shittiest DE in existence, though from what I'm seeing here, OSX is a serious contender for that honor. Unity too comes close, but not quiet.

>DE's can be customized, maybe Unity is making it difficult but that's so far from "most DE's" that it's not even funny.
please try showing/hiding toolbars, sidebars and individual gui elements in thunar, nautilus, nemo, dolphin and all the other standard file browsers, you'll find that i'm absolutely right. it's possible in maybe 30% of the cases. it's really frustrating because i really, really want to like and use linux for its merits but some of the software i need isn't supported and there's these silly shortcomings like this basic lack of customizability that drives me back to hackintosh.

>>51463679
>And what exactly are you trying to do with scripts that you can't do in Linux?
first, applescript works across almost all OSX apps, which makes it more versatile and easier to learn than on linux where you have several different ways of doing similar stuff.

what i mean is stuff like, for example, have the mail and chat apps save all the picture attachments of incoming mails and messages into a folder in your home directory; and have that folder periodically resize and reformat all those pictures to a standard height and picture format (say, jpeg). then, once a month, it will compile all those pictures into a PDF file and back it up to an external harddisk or an ftp server.

the beauty of applescript is the graphical frontend ("Automator") that enables even people with no coding or scripting knowledge to set up somewhat complex stuff like this.

obviously the task above is a little nonsensical, but just to give you a tangible example. i personally use it to back up my personal and work files that i haven't used in two weeks to an external drive according to a certain organisational pattern, it's nice not to have to think about that.

I haven't had any need to do anything too radical to the file browser. I just adjusted the icon size on both the sidebar and the actual browser. You can hide the sidebar with F9 in Thunar. I like to keep it, it's fast and easy. The system theme alters the look of the buttons and WM theme alters the window borders which has closing and minimize and maximize buttons.
>>
>tfw just switched my desktop from Arch to OSX
>>
>>51464012

So basically you prefer it because Apple rewards lazy people who don't want to be assed to learn scripting.

No it's not. I'm not a ricer. In some cases the defaults might be good enough for me. I just think that nothing is impossible if you truly want it. After all, nothing is locked down. Just check the desktop thread sometimes and you see how drastically things can be changed in your system.

The sidebar can be hidden with F9 like I said. The navigation bar is pretty small and I wouldn't want to get rid of it personally but maybe there's a way to remove it too. The button size and look is from the system theme. The menubar can be hidden with Ctrl + M. This is how it looks like in my case.

I keep file browser icons big since it's faster and easier to hit them with a cursor when they are big and this is a laptop which has a trackpad.

10.5... the days when you can add additional hard drives in your mac pro, upgrade your video card, and apple paired powerful enough gpus to the screen resolutions they offered.

shit, even the imacs allowed for easy access to repairs and doing things like swapping out your own hard drive and ram.

now all that shit is soldered in or apple went full jew and using their own proprietary ports. like their pci-express based ssd's.

You can customize OSX easy.
Apple is closed only on iOS. But then there is jailbreaking.
