Hello people,
My quest is to get a 4dwm like desktop on my MacBook Pro.
Being that MaXXDesktop is linux only. So for FVWM the closest I got to the IRIX look.
Not only I'm looking for a nice X11 desktop but more apps to make the desktop useful on Mac OS X.
Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions or opinions please feel free to post them.

QT had (has?) a SGI-lookalike theme, so you might want to start there.

Thanks for the reply, I will look into that.
I also see that IceWM has a 4dwm theme. I'm going to see if I can get IceWM running on the Mac. I believe I already tried it IceWM via Macports.
