    Wow that's kinda cool...
    Windows 7's default shell is better IMO.
    I have heard it is possible to install KDE on Windows, never tried it though.

    the only difference I see is the menu at the top... welcome to 10 years ago.

    You do know there is a Sticky topic about Desktop Customization here and one to post your Desktops here.

    I'm using BumpTop (3d desktop) for my desktop, but I use the normal taskbar. I also use ObjectDock Plus as my 'dock' for all my crap, although I've started tossing it on my desktop now.

    I'm using SharpE, a shell replacement, inspired from one of Wabsta's Screenshot in the Post Your Desktop Thread.
