LiteStep! Replace that stupid start button in windows.





socialoutcast
I got tried of looking at my windows start button and task bar and desided to change that. You know make windows not look like windows anymore. So a found a program called LiteStep. It's pretty neat. With it I made windows xp look like the KDE shell, but I can still run my windows applications.

what is your favorite shell replacement/enhancement?

LiteStep is just another alternitive shell. that's fine if you like it.

TweakUI is all I really need. I don't care for fanciness or something different. For what it is the taskbar works just fine.

I used to use LiteStep under Windows 98 - the fancy TurtleSoup II theme - really a treat to the eyes... and I mean futuristic Wink

The later versions for 2000/XP have good themes as well.

Prefer ObjectBar + ObjectDock for an OS X look though.

the fun part about the windows start bar is when you can get a hexeditor and ( I know this sounds dumb but it is really satisfying ) and you can change all sorts of stuff in the explorer.exe file. Stuff like that quite fun indeed.

Oh man, I haven't used LiteStep since I was in the dorms and wanted to discourage other people from using my computer Razz

I'd use it now, however I haven't found any good themes anymore. The theme I used back then was K-Gnome. The LiteStep helped reduce the resource hogging of the explorer shell, however the windows blind theme that came with K-Gnome probably made it equal to the explorer shell resource hogging Razz
