Editors' Review

+
This gargantuan program gives your Windows XP system a makeover in a successful attempt to resemble Mac OS X. Though we were impressed with how FlyakiteOSX redesigned our system, the lengthy installation process was a big turnoff. The program lets you skin Windows XP, with its preconfigured themes and icons that change the entire look of your desktop. However, FlyakiteOSX offers only two themes and a limited settings dialog. You can opt to install more editing tools that are bundled with the program, such as ObjectDock and WinRoll. Unfortunately, you'll need to restart your PC whenever you tweak some settings. Despite some drawbacks of this freeware, we doubt you'll have any complaints with the appearance of your polished desktop.

"Very nice and beautiful"

March 21, 2010  |  By warlocklw

 |  Version: FlyakiteOSX 2

Pros

Make my XP looks like Mac, and the sound is nice too. Really like it.

Cons

Movie maker, and calculator can't works, error will pop-up when you try open it due to changing critical system file. It consumes more RAM, and slow down startup speed a bit.

Summary

I like it overall, and not decide to uninstall it yet, so I don't know if there's problem with its uninstaller. It uses up 800MB RAM on idle for me, so will slow down system a lot if you have insufficient RAM.

"dont install"

July 15, 2009  |  By jamezz024

 |  Version: FlyakiteOSX 2

Pros

it was a nice interface and everything worked.......for one day

Cons

my computer crashed and lagged and on boot up it was fine click an application and the computer crashes the only way to uninstall is to system restore but if you are defiantly going to download this i would recommend making a system restore point.

Summary

This is a good program for mac os x lovers and is a good way to feel like your using a mac but the major set back is the computer speed drops and it is hard to uninstall not to mention all the crashing when i downloaded it it was very buggy i dont know if it has changed but im not going to find out

"Leave Vista to look like Vista!!!"

April 07, 2009  |  By NZBCTelevision

 |  Version: FlyakiteOSX 2

Pros

FlyakitOSX doesn't have any pros. Simple.

Cons

Besides there being a long install time, and requiring a restart every time you went to do something, THIS PROGRAM DESTROYED MY COMPUTER.

I'll admit I was using Vista, I urge all Vista users to NOT INSTALL THIS PROGRAM. That goes for XP as well.

Summary

This program caused me to lose all data on my computer. I am now waiting for help either in the form of a disc or total format.

This is simply the worst program I have ever encountered, and therefore urge all Windows users to avoid this program. Click the BACK button now!

I am disappointed in CNET Download.com for allowing this "program" to be available for download on its site. I shall not be using this site anymore.

This program has simply been a total disaster. Everyone stay away.

"Excellent!"

October 16, 2008  |  By samusgravity

 |  Version: FlyakiteOSX 2

Pros

Does what it says! The program completely changes your PC into a mac!

Cons

If the uninstall feature doesn't work, you have to use a System Restore point to get rid of the program.
Slows your PC down by about 5-10% (not much)

Summary

Cnet needs to update this download because Flyakite OSx has a 3.5 version! Anyway, excellent program!
