    I love the look and feel of the windows phone 7 but can not bare to part with my droid x :). Is there any chance of a wp7 rom for android? Heard things about running on hd2, any connection?

    There are ways to tweak the Android UI so it looks like WP7. Someone posted a how-to a while back.

    I think you'd be better off finding someone who can build a WP7 inspired theme for Android.

    Even if someone could extract the ROM for WP7 it's not yet known how much coding would be involved to modify the abstraction layer to move it to different hardware.

    you never know you may put the wp7 rom on there find that wp7 is extremely buggy and just not a good feeling, but you also may like it, i would suggest looking for a dev and see if they have plans to do something like that in the near future, cause there may be more than one person wanting to do that same thing
