Somewhere, a long time ago, in a post far, far away, I saw something that demonstrated how you could get System 7 (7.5.3+) to look like Mac OS 8, but I don't remember what it was. Could one of you fine neighbors help me with my "sometimers"?

Thanks,
Dan

I am pretty sure I read something like that on lowendmac.com -- I don't have a link to it, but I would look there.

Kaliedoscope has a really cool theme that gave your interface the OS8 look.

Don't.

Most of the utilities that make Mac OS 7 look and feel like Mac OS 8 slow it down just as much. If you're going to do that, you might as well load full-blown Mac OS 8 and get the compatibility with newer applications in the mix.

The one I use to use was called "Aaron" I think.

I have a copy laying around somewhere, it was shareware.
