um, why does it look so like Aqua OS X? So, they added some more buttons to the window title-bars. That doesn't deny the fact that the rest of the title bar scheme is identical!

That's just the window borders. This theme is available for various X11 window managers. In PekWM it's called Agualemon. I'm not sure where it was originally ported from (XFCE4?) and if the same name was used there. Also it's not identical to the borders in Aqua - it's simpler (and IMO alot slicker).

And I could similar things about their dock, hell they even call it a dock (which has always seemed a slightly stupid name to me!)

Yes, the dock is obviously somewhat inspired by the one in OS X (the name has historical reasons - in NeXTSTEP the implementation felt more like things actually docked into the "Dock"), but probably also by Slicker for KDE (http://www.komodoware.com/?path=/about/kusers.xml).
