    Im 3 months new to Windows XP. So far I have used WindowBlinds(Didn't like it), Style XP(Likes it) and now Aston Shell Desktop(Love it).


    But my question is, besides Aston, is there any other programs out there like it.

    Here you go m8,

    Aston Shell

    I strongly suggest you read up on it, before you actually use it, it's not that hard to use, good luck.



    :cool:

    Litestep, I know is free, and some of the others as well, not sure which ones though.

    geOShell is free
     
  9. if you want something intricate and with lots of visual complexity, like aston - don't get aston! first of all, you have to pay a whopping $28 for it - Litestep is free! Also, you can do more with litestep, because it has a much larger community associated with it. if you rather something more minimal, try SharpE or GeOShell

    www.litestep.com
    www.geoshellx.com
    www.lowdimension.net

    Litestep Themes

    Litestep Installer


    *NOTE* If you use Litestep and change themes pay close attention. Themes can be distro or OTS. If they are distro, you must have the distro patch.

    Second link given, provides more information.

    I don't know how much easier you can get with just placing the theme in the theme folder and click recycle. Maybe that's too difficult for some people. :rolleyes:
