Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

An unlikely wish. They don't exactly encourage skinning, even. I don't know what it's like in Vista, but XP requires a hacked DLL, just to allow unauthorized themes (that is, all of them). I think they like to protect their corporate identity.

It's really a shame. Windows 98 was greatly improved by installing a replacement shell but, in my experience, it was just too unstable. I put that down to it not being officially supported, though it may just have been general Windows 9x crashy-ness.
