Your right Greg. I for one want to be able to run KDE or GNOME and
still have my WINE applications integrate cleanly. We do need some sort
of a bridge on the Unix side for the Window manager. Any such interface
that is developed needs to be a external application that sits in the
middle of WINE and the WM. Any such application need to use the
interfaces provided by shell32 and the shell namespace. I am thinking
like SGI file access notification program they wrote that is used in
natulas. libFAM isnt it?
Also this application cant rob CodeWeavers of too much money. =)

Right. The ReactOS explorer is a very limited purpose application. If I
was going to be running nothing but Windows applications I could see
how it might be of use to me under Linux. I dont know if the "Desktop"
option still exists in WINE but it would be nice to have ros-explorer
when running WINE in desktop mode under Linux. The I could just run all
of my Win32 apps from one place.
