Alternitive desktop Shells for Windows XP,NT,9x

Postby infinitevalence » Sat Apr 24, 2004 1:17 pm

People in the market for a light wight desktop shell may want to take a look at Blackbox for windows. This may also appeal to *nix users who are forced to use windows for what ever reason. Blackbox for windows (bb4win) is more than a port of the original blackbox. It utilizes the same rendering code but has its own code base. This makes it very stable, fast and efficient. I have been using bb4win for about a year now and still love it. It replaces your explorer, start menu and task bar with an easy to use toolbar and right click menu. It’s highly configurable with plugins, branches if you want a more fluxbox or more integrated version. If people are interested I suggest clicking the links below to one of the branches or taking a look at the screenshots. You can also find me and the dev team on irc at #bb4win.

BlueBox, FluxBox "port"
xoblite, easy to use box
bblean, built for 9x, screenshots, styles and *box news

**i am a user of bb4win and thats all, this is just and great program and i want to get it out and around the net.**
