A comment, most users in the Windoze world are still using XP, including the vast majority of my friends & colleagues. Being that this is the standard UI for many people, could you give us a simple rundown on customizing to that?
Thanks

I know this isn't what you really want, but there is a silver XP IceWM theme: http://themes.freshmeat.net/projects/icewmsilverxp/

Emerald theme: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ ... tent=68882
GTK theme: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ ... tent=48568

there are a few XP-like metacity themes on there too

Sigh... It's more for these types, if I can find a way to make them more comfortable with Linux it may ease the transition...
