Don't know -- was just saying that's a solution to fine-tune every 
single detail -- but if just using a -sort-of-like-windows desktop is 
okay than you choose a KDE/whatever theme to decorate windows to look 
like XP

(I think KDE or GNOME can be configured to use a window manager other 
than the standard one -- but that'd boil down to the same as designing 
your own window manager)
