This section is for Alternate Shells for Windows. Most people don't know that the "default" shell, called Explorer, isn't the only option available. Alternate shells allow you to have a different, customized interface to Windows. Most are HIGHLY configurable, and totally change the feel of your Windows session. These are not for the meek, though. Unless you know what you are doing, changing your shell can cause Bad Things (tm) to happen. Of course, Good Things (tm) come of having your computer suit YOUR needs, rather than Microsoft's... =) Have fun!
