    I heard software Aston shell completely writes a new shell interface onto windows xp and actually uses less resources. Is this true?

    don't know about less but doesn't use very much, I run it on 500mz laptop and resources are a premium, 128 of ram

    no slow downs but everything is tweaked, your computer will run as good as you put effort into it

    Without having tryied it yet, I would seriously doubt it. Anything that covers up the Windows shell doesn't use less resources, but if it somehow stops explorer.exe from starting and replace it with it's own resource effecient desktop manager, you would still have to account the super graphics replacement shells have. They usually totally hog video memory. I don't know. I'll check it out for myself son enough.

    Hmmm... I just read the readme and it does say it uses less resources. Is this the replacement shell that uses a series of bitmaps instead of a theme file?

    Is this right ?

    Minimum system requirements:
    - Pentium I or compatible processor;
    - 8Mb RAM;
    - 20 MB free disk space;
    - Video card, supporting High Color mode;
    - Mouse is recommended;
    I&#39;m seriously considering installing this - do I need to uninstall StyleXP first or not ?

    Alrighty then -

    -Installed Astonshell and switched. Works.
    -Switched to Nintendo theme B)
    -Messed around for 10 minutes before all the links worked properly
    -Not convinced yet, but it&#39;s not bad either.

    Now - the v3.1 universal crack : any good ?
