My aunt is making $3000/mo working from home! All she has to do is... just kidding!
Anyway, I've been a devout user of SharpEnviro (which is now dead) for a few years, and I recently started looking around to see if anything is left of the alternative shell-making community. And I was really pleased to discover this.
Obviously, most of the other alternative shell projects are dead now. But I don't understand this: it seems like none of those projects accepted donations. Why is that? With lots of other freeware, there are options to donate. Even firefox themes ask for donations. By comparison, I think a shell that I enjoy is substantially more important to my computing experience than a firefox theme. If I am willing to pay for new versions of Windows, then why not an alternative shell? It contributes to the OS environment. I'd be willing to drop a pretty decent amount of cash if it would spur the developer(s) to put more time and effort into a shell replacement that I like. I'm wondering if this was one of the reasons why many other projects died. Maybe there was just too little incentive.
I'm excited that this project appears to be alive and kicking, and I would like to contribute somehow. I don't know how to program stuff like this, though -- I can only program Matlab.
