All Gurus once were Newbies
There are no such things as "stupid" questions. However if you think your question is a bit stupid, then this is the right place for you to post it. Please stick to easy to-the-point questions that you feel people can answer fast. For long and complicated questions prefer the other forums within the support section.

Not sure if this qualifies for the Newbie section but anyway. Being a glutton for punishment and even though I've barely scraped the surface of understanding Linux I am no wondering if there is a program that I can load which will give my system the appearance and behaviour of a Mac as I always want to get some feel for running a Mac type system.
Always something to learn for those open to learning.

I reckon there are at least two Mac emulators available in the repositories: Basilisk and PearPC. The former emulates 68k Macs environment while the latter does PowerPC. I doubt you will be using Basilisk legally, though, as it requires a ROM image of a 68k machine in order to work. PearPC on the other hand, requires a full installation disc of any PPC-based OS X and still does not handle x86 versions. That said, PearPC is the most advanced Mac emulator available up to date -- at least as far as my knowledge is concerned. More information about it can be found at PearPC Wiki

if you just want to change the look and feel to be like mac (doc / windows / the top bar), then search for mac4lin or bhagira (or bagira not sure on spelling). One of them is for KDE & the other for gnome.
