    What windows shell are you using?

    Hey guy, I want to know what window replacement shell you all are using. I'm tired of explorer and I've tried a couple different ones. I want to see what everyone else is using.

    Let us know what version of windows you are using. What the pros and cons of the shell are, what you like about it and what problems you have had. Is it stable or was explorer more stable. Any other comments about the shell are welcome. Also a screen screenshot of your desktop would be awesome.
    Thanks.

    for carputer use? explorer, until i get my software written then it'll be that.

    desktop use? i've used several: aston was the first one i started using. its pretty stable and nice, easy to theme, but lacks some features. blackbox for windows is my favorite in the line of minimal managers. i used it for a long time, and it has good plugins. very stable. uses hardly any memory. then of course theres cloud9 and ge0shell. i liked ge0shell better, cloud9 was very unstable. i bet they are better now, i haven't used them in a while but they were definately the best looking and great features, just kinda unstable. of course thats what they get for coding it in vb =p
    CarPC install is starting to come along again...

    I was into the 3d things, 3dtop, 3d doors, 3dtop is very minimal, and is useful, doors was more for the wow factor, as it was like shadow warrior with icons and no weapons =p
