OSX-like theme for GNOME
When I installed Elementary there was some things i didn't like about it., for example that it uses the Aurora engine for some parts and uses a way too dark colors overall. The biggest no-no for me though was that Elementary is made to be used with a dock, so for me who uses standard gnome-panel it was a turn off to see how ugly it was when not using a panel for window management.
At first I started to modify the existing gtkrc of Elementary but I soon realised that it would be easier to start from scratch and use Elementary's gtkrc as an inspiration. And so I did.
I\'ve stolen some configuration options from Elementary, such as the mod for Nautilus sidepane and made it work with only murrine options. The panel is made by using Elementary as an inspiration but it\'s made from scratch.
The Metacity is just Elementary, I've only modified the titlebar as I don\'t liked the shading thingy going on with the title of every window.

GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
