Metro Shell preview1 by RaymonVisual Metro Shell preview1 by RaymonVisual
note: it's not a wip. it's actually working. ;)

Metro Shell is a Desktop Customizing application made over .NET Framework for Windows 7. It's a taskbar and startmenu replacement. It's a Metro inspired application with seamless integration of Widgets, Internet, and some useful features. Its' also extensible, means that you can create Widgets, that get into Tiles Screen, if you know C# or VB.NET programming in WPF platform.

I look forward to this, but as a widget developer, will developing widgets for metro shell be similar to developing widgets for Newgen? Would be cool if I could easily import widgets over to Metro Shell

I've got a little idea: you know in W7, when you hover an icon in the taskbar, you can see a preview of each window of the program. You should do the same, but show all the windows' thumbnails =P

You should tell exactly what it changes, for example, we don't know the new features added by the taskbar ! :)
just one little idea, make it a little transparent ;P

Impressive.
Will this work alone or only in combination with Newgen?

It's a fresh codes. we just made the widgets of newgen to work/compatible on metro shell so that we don't have to make new widgets in this new project. ;)
btw about the metrotaskbar, we succeeded adding the "exclusion list" function.
also metro shell is not intended to copy startscreen of win8. we are making it to be more useful than newgen.

Newgen versus Metro Shell;
Metro Shell consumed less mem usage.
Metro Shell has sidebar. has some useful items to ease of access. like notes and media player.
Metro Shell has metrotaskbar.
Metro Shell has "refresh" function. clicking it will refresh the mem usage of metro shell. this function is really interesting too.
Settings window has great animation and when applying settings it will refresh the mem usage too automatically when closing settings.
also Metro Shell has cool animations. ;)
