Requires OS X 10.11, so I couldn't try it.

Looks pretty cool, but it makes me wonder what you are running. 10.11 has been around a while, and it will run on 10.11 or later (presumably including Mojave)

Okay, cute, but none of the keyboard shortcuts work and it's just a file explorer, not a reskin. Hell, can't even scroll in a window or use it to launch files/apps.

You're not missing much, Uki.

I had Mint all skinned up to look like OS9 for awhile but then I did a clean install and never bothered reinstalling the OS9 theme but ever since then, at least 5 years, I have had my windows widgets positioned just like in the old MacOS.
Minimize/maximize to the right, close on the left which I think is the very best way to do it. Segregating the destructive widget from the non-destructive ones. Apple got that right back then and has been doing it wrong ever since.
Not even duct tape will fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.
