It is Enlightenment for OS/2. Exactly it's the port of Enlightenment to XFree86OS/2.

Enlightenment is a Windowmanager for X-Windows, with the aim of perfect customizable look with perfect usability. In my opinion they're hitting their goal. Enlightenment is using themes to change it's complete look, and behavior. That means instead just changing Pixmaps some samesized pixmaps or bars it changes the complete outlook, that includes, dragbars, buttons with different features, resizecorners and it's behaviors.
