    well seing as this thread ISN"T about linux shells, i'll add my 2 cents.
    right now i'm just using explorer as my shell, but i've used LiteStep, i liked it, its fun to play with, but sometimes just got in the way and was a hastle to me.
    I've also played wiht Aston Shell, it was fun while it lasted haha which was a coupel days, until a lot of people told me they had to reformat to get rid of it because it caused problems with their systems
    So until i find something i like better then explorer (which may not happen) i'm happy.

    If you install SuSE you don't need to learn anything, it's no harder than using Windows (easier IMO).

    Ubuntu is very easy also, and fully featured for free, one cd.

    They're all free and the SuSE net installer is only 30MB.

    If you just want a Linux sampler, Knoppix is very good, excellent hardware support and it just runs off the CD so you can try it out without installing anything to your hard drive.

    :mamoru: The thread would have failed if I hadn't hijacked it, there aren't that many people running alternate Windows shells.
