For a maximal dogfood experience, I was looking around
for a way to use a replacement Windows shell with
Wine as my desktop environment instead of gnome
So far, all the ones I've found are either broken, hard to use,
or just plain weird.
I've been working through the list at
http://www.astonshell.com/aston/ - couldn't figure out how to run it?
http://www.emergedesktop.org/ - kind of works, but very minimal, no start menu
http://www.labyrinth.net.au/~mosses/rob/liteshell.html - works, but
very minimal, no start menu
http://purels.org - no help, just exits, saying "ha ha, you didn't
configure me". Obviously not meant for me :-)
http://www.lighttek.com/talisman.htm - pretty, but no Programs menu?!
(Maybe that's there but broken, wine bug?)
http://www.sky.franken.de/explorer/download.html - ROS explorer -
there is 3 years out of date, doesn't work too well
Anyone have a favorite I should try?
