Dear b0se, what about licensing? I personally consider this theme a masterpiece, and would like to port it to some linux desktop environments (particularly icewm). Would you allow me to do this? If yes, would you also bother to provide us with the sources (i.e. images and whatever was put into msstyles and dlls)?

I've had it on my XP for 5 or 6 years now. Wish it will be ported to Windows 7 for my laptop.
