I think OP means this and, no, can't say that I've tried it although it is pretty. It seems to lack official support for anything following b7000 (RC).

they released it in Jan 2009 for a limited period to testers but as of yet there is no other downloads other than some wallpapers according to their FAQ's.

It might just be me, but it has a very mac OS X-esque feel to it crossed with the iPhone icon style

Yeah same

I guess they are trying to emulate two of the most popular things around

I think that if you're going to do that just download Flyakite its not available for x64 (apparently something to do with the coding requirements- certain areas of x64 code that can't be modified) but just look at the amount of work that haas gone into it - even the website is novel and fun to navigate. If I wasn't running x64 i'd be playing with this right now!

Please consider these two keys: What is the main difference between these? Say, I've changed first the keys under Shell Folders and then under User Shell Folders. It was only until I'd changed those under User Shell Folders (after restarting the machine) did the changes take place.
