I found this login manager. It's hilarious. :D

OMG, I was laughing for a while. Check out what it says at the bottom :)

And it actually works too! You can log in with it and it will launch your KDE, Gnome, etc. (I only tried it
with KDE though.) I made an ebuild for it in case anyone wants to give it a try:

https://github.com/holliday/holliday/blob/master/x11-misc/camel/camel-3.2.2-r1.ebuild

One unfortunate thing is that it requires clang and libcxx (and libcxx needs to be un-keyworded).

To get it working, set DISPAYMANAGER="camel" in /etc/conf.d/xdm, if you are using OpenRC.
For systemd folks (like me), disable your current login manager and enable camel. Eg:

systemctl disable kdm
systemctl enable camel

Or if you just want to fire it up once, launch "camel :1" as root. (I tried as normal user,
but it hangs for some reason.)

To get the Windows theme, you have to edit /etc/camel.conf and change theme_name
from default to redmond. It also has ariya and elarun, which look like KDE themes.

I am gonna go ROFLMAO some more. :)

Wow, this is perfect for these people who always manage to infect their computer with the newest malware. Nice find!

Combine this with the XFCE Windows 7 theme, dockbarx and create a fake Internet Explorer shortcut for firefox.

I am gonna do that for my wife. She keeps complaining that Linux looks too different :)

On a more serious note: is anybody able to take a look at the code and figure out how it can be compiled without clang and libcxx?
