Now that we've wandered delightfully off-topic, you might want to
look at E-Sense ( http://www.kjofol.org/e/ ). There are a dozen other
themed shells for windows out there, from OpenSourced tools like
Litestep (litestep.net) and eFX to commercial product liks
Windows Blinds from StarDock software (windowsblinds.net).
Visit customize.org for more Win32 eye-candy, and themes.org for
Trying to get an X11 native window manager to manage your Win32
windows isn't feasible. Once Peter writes a windowable X11 server,
however, it is feasible that you run the Win32 port of Enlightenment
with the same theme as your native X11 version - effectively
merging the look and feel.
We're really comparing apples and oranges here.
