    Anyone run frodo as the windows shell instead of explorer?

    Do you set up explorer as an application then incase you want to go back to regular windows?

    How does it work for you any faster booting up?

    Woot.

    Its not really faster (least not on my comp). It sits on the welcome screen for quite some time on a fresh boot. On the default skin there is a button to minimize frodoplayer. After that you can just hit alt control delete/new task/ and type in explorer.exe . Booting in safe mode launches the windows shell too as i recall.
