Evil Shell Desktop

Evil Shell is 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
* Clock
* 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
