I'm trying it out now. I kinda like it. Haven't tested it with gaming yet, but here's a screen of my desktop. It's the default theme with wallpaper from a different theme and my own color scheme.

I did an uninstall just to check for potential problems and I didn't have any issues. Just be sure you set the shell back to Explorer from the tray icon, and then uninstall after a rebot once Explorer is running.

I never really have heard of any of them. So which one is overall the best one to use? I would be happy to try it out. Never was a fan of the windows them and the other ones always take up to much memory. If this one actually performs better when gaming I would love to give it a shot. Let me know thanks.

That depends on what you like.

SharpE seems to still be under pretty heavy development, so don't expect a plethora of themes or other mods. It's stable, quikc, and good looking, though. That's what I'm using.

Litestep is perhaps the most popular replacement shell, it's got a very good dev cycle and is a well-rounded product. Tons of predone themes are available, and they can change the look of it quite a bit.

Blackbox (or any of it's varients) is a windowmanager originaly developed for linux/unix systems that is very lightweight, easy to use, and is also very good all-around. It'd be my second choice due to it's fast release cycle and great sub-culture. There are several other Shells based off of BB, and they are worth looking into as well. Plenty of themes available for Blackbox.

GameOS is good, but is shareware and not as nice as the others IMO. I'd avoid it due to the much better options out there.

Those are the 4 I've used, hopefuly that helps you out some with your decesion. And remmeber: It's totaly reversable, so if you don't like something, take it off and try another.

That alone is going to make me try it. I always had problems with themes and uninstalling them. The pain of getting your regular icons back and such. I will try it now, thanks

EDIT: Do you have a linky for LiteStep?
