Bringing Back the Old Aqua Theme

Did you know it's possible to bring back the old Tiger and Panther Aqua theme back to Leopard? You can do it in one simple step - type this in Terminal.app (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app):

defaults write -g AppleUseCoreUI -bool NO && defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSUseLeopardWindowValues NO && killall Finder

If you quit and restart all open applications, you'll see they have the old window decoration. If you want to complete your experience, follow these instructions to get a Tiger-like opaque menu bar and a transparent dock.

To undo changes, change NO to YES, and vice-versa if necessary.

Good luck!
