Their work is to make Linux look like XP. Not sure if one could call it progressive in nature. ;)

This is only a graphical desktop environment, and we can't use it - the GUI of ReactOS is mostly ready to use... The reason why the most programs didn't run is: We need more API-functions, and they don't be developed by XPDE

As e7 already mentioned, this project doesn't have any value for us at all and We have neither been inspired by it nor used any of their work.

It looks like they found a picture of grass and tried to make it bigger by merging it with its mirror image. Then they tried to hide the symmetry by offsetting the centre, and liberally using the blur tool. Then they added some sky with rainclouds. Perhaps then they upped the saturation a bit.

I think it would be nice if we use something that is actually better than the Windows XP wallpaper.
