Actually I got a low priority TODO item: porting dwm in
C for .NET if there is some spare time in the future. But note,
if I do it, this will be commercial software - as I don't see
any reason why I should develop it for free under Windows Vista
(the Visual Studio 2007 + Windows Vista licenses cost a lot, so
at least I want get back those costs) - if anyone knows a
company who'd made an initial donation (a Vista box + Visual Studio
send me a priv mail)...
Another reason for making such project commercial is
'Schmerzensgeld' in German words - dunno if 'smart money' would
be the correct English translation. Actually the pain developing
and using Windows has to be paid at least - that's what it

I got a similiar idea for OS X as well, but as I told that has
low priority... and I consider developing for OS X is more
painful than for Windows.
