Alternative Windows Shells

I love linux, dont get me wrong, but there are a lot of commercial programs i use on windows, so i have to have windows to use them = ( I get sick of looking at the explorer shell all the time so installed litestep, a completely customizable alternative shell for windows. It takes up less RAM and looks nicer IMHO.

Check out the screenshot:

Nice huh? Post your customized, non-explorer, windows screenshots, and show off to everyone = )

XP Classic here, the faster the better. You have to set up decent fonts though, the XP default fonts suck bad, I’ve also modified the colours slightly and IMO it looks better than the default XP themes.

It’s not an alternative shell, but it’s good enough:
