That's actually the antithesis of Cinnamon's fundamental design aesthetic.

Gnome 3's UI design is the reason for the split several years ago.

I think you may well be barking up the wrong tree.
Everything is in hand. With this tapestry... and with patience, there is nothing one cannot achieve.

Isn't that easy enough to do yourself?

What are you saying?

Do you want Cinnamon to work on Mac?

Mint or Cinnamon to just be another Ubuntu, or worse, Gnome?

You want Mac, Ubutntu or Gnome to conform to Cinnamon?

Two people replied and they seem to be thinking different ideas for what you are saying also.

Maybe a bit off topic, why do so many Linux users want more Apple/Mac influence on open source desktop environments when Apple is even more drastic about their proprietary mentality than either Microsoft or Google?

I presume the first word in your post is We? Who is this "We" you're speaking for?

If you want a clean desktop like the one in your link, try Ubuntu.
IF AND WHEN your problem has been solved, please edit your original post and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of the Subject Line. It helps other members.

My first response was when I thought I was about to head out the door. I had enough time to look at Zorba's recent posts. There have been multiple posts in multiple threads about this and Zorba just wants Gnome to be another DE for Mint. viewtopic.php?f=29&t=261094&p=1410516#p1410516

The post in this thread may be a matter of, if "we" (the extreme minority on this forum) can't get Gnome as another desktop just make Cinnamon the exact same as Gnome? If that is the case, Portreve is right. The reason Cinnamon exists is to get away from what Gnome is doing.

Debian offers a version of Gnome that Ubuntu hasn't "messed" with yet. I haven't checked it out for a while but last I knew Fedora did too. Then again, I don't even know if Ubuntu has messed with it. Maybe Gnome messed with themselves, AGAIN.

I'm pretty sure there's an easy way to access the stock Gnome experience on Ubuntu from what I read a while back. If Ubuntu is your ideal, just go with Ubuntu.
