    Meh...I know it is free now, but they want to charge $19.99 regularly. Why pay for something that I already get free from Classic Shell?

    thank you techtu, hadn't even thought of replacing it! I will go with classic shell though, as it looks great and is open source :)

    Looks nice, but I don't use the start menu very often.

    I think you missed out the word "use" :)

    ... Neither do I now since Windows 7 anyway's I love that you are able to pin items to the task bar :D although there was the quick launch option in XP & Vista it was just something that didn't appeal to me at the time.

    I don't see any missed words. :p

    I use Fences, so all of my icons are organized to my liking.

    I would like to know, however, if anyone has used this and how well it functions.

    You should check it out, it is really awesome. I only really use it to get the up arrow in explorer(personally I don't like the classic start menu, so luckily you can turn that off). But it also have a bunch of other nice little UI tweaks for Win7.

    lol ... thankfully you caught that in one of my sections. :D

    @Newt : Thanks for the extra info on customization of CS. I think I'll take a look at that when I have some time.
