I thought it would be nifty to have the Windows NT (TM) color schemes
for my Unix fvwm2 setup, so I have written a package to do that.  I've
to do some cleanups and a bit more on it then I might release it.

I want to know if people are interested in a package like this.
Instead of trying to duplicate your color schemes from your Windows NT
(!)  setup (I admit some are not too bad :), what I have working now
will take all of your color schemes and then translate them into a
suitable format for say, fvwm 2 beta or fvwm95 (right now it will give
you a menu of *all* your color schemes from your Windows setup).  It
requires that you actually have a Windows setup to do the obtain the
raw data however.

There are some pics near the bottom of:

Merry Christmas!

The files are probably still in the Incoming directory.

Genscheme 1.0 is a small package designed to aid you in the otherwise
tedious task of converting your Windows 95 or Windows NT 4 color
schemes to a suitable format for your Linux box.

Sample templates are included for both fvwm2, fvwm95-2 and some
resources (although fvwm95-2 works currently works a bit better for
now, for obvious reasons).  You can convert a single scheme or all
schemes.  Since it is a first release, it should be considered "beta"
quality.

RPMs should also be available where the .tar files are as well (see
below).
