Wez's Evil Shell
A Windows Desktop Replacement
- What is it?
- A replacement for the default Windows®XP and Windows Server 2003 graphical shell (taskbar, start menu and "tray").
- Why would I want one?
The default explorer shell uses quite a lot of run-time resources and can be
quite slow to use for "Power Users". This shell provides the following
features but uses only a fraction of the resources that explorer.exe uses:
- Quicklaunch icon bar
- System Notification area (aka "Tray"), including tray bubbles
- No classic taskbar, but "flashing" windows have their icons bounced to get your attention
- Light-weight icon-free start menu
- Kludge-free Workspace management; use up to 32 virtual desktops
- icon-free desktop
