Cool Where do I get those cool transparent windows? (KDE)

Got Linux dual booted and all is well on my laptop. I'd like to use a more custom desktop and LOVE the screenshots of the transparent windows. Where can I get some KDE themes with them?
Thanks in advance,

Are you referring to the transparent terminal windows? I do that with some of my konsole's. I think Eterm works as well. Just look through the options/preferences and you should see a few schema's that are transparent. Also, if you want to be really tricky, you can make your own schema... they are saved in the /usr/share/apps/konsole directory.
