TaskSwitchXP – added 8/30/2005

TaskSwitchXP is an advanced task management utility that picks up where the standard Windows Alt+Tab switcher leaves off.

TaskSwitchXP also has a powerful process and window management capability that allows you quickly to close/minimize applications and their groups. The unique capabilities of TaskSwitchXP make it useful for tracking down multitudinous windows, and provide insight into the way Windows and applications work.

Hardlink ShellExtension – added 7/30/2005

The NTFS filesystem of NT4/W2K/WXP supports hardlinks functionality, but hardlinks can only be created via the POSIX command ln, which is shipped with the NT4/W2K/WXP resourcekit. Even if with POSIX commands, hardlinks can only be created via the command prompt, which is a kind of a mess for many files. The Hardlink ShellExtension implements a extension to the NT4/W2K/WXP shell explorer, so that hardlinks can be created via the right mouse button on a selection of one or multiple files.


Evil Shell – added 7/17/2005

Evil Shell offers a replacement for the default Windows XP graphical shell (taskbar, start menu and “tray”). Features a Quicklaunch icon bar, System Notification area, Clock, up to 4 virtual desktops and start menu replacement.
