Such as Plex, Slate and Jade. I want to bug decorate my XP. Is it possible to port them?
Offtopic Comment
Also, is it possible to port Aero to XP by porting DWM?

Yes, that should be possible, since msstyles themes are pretty much PEs with no executable portion.

And no, you can't just port DWM.

Some maybe, others probably need modification.
Deviantart user ebhefgy (ebhefgy.deviantart.com) made a ton of these, but he just deactivated his account a day or two ago.

Suumpmolk did it

as for DWM, maybe if heavily "adapted" 4039 or 4066 or 5048 onto XP SP2 ?
(or was it SP1 that wasn't kernel bricked ?)
