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.
Video preview soon! ;)

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

we will bring back metroshell as soon as it's almost stable. it has alot of bugs for now that's why we removed it. hope you understand. we don't want to mess up you pc :)

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
djeos546's avatar
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
RaymonVisual's avatar
changes? metroshell is still in progress. it's not release yet
djeos546's avatar
ok :)
Tell me when released plz ;P
RaymonVisual's avatar
sorry i can't tell when.
startscreen and sidebar done.
taskbar = 60% - still fixing thumbnail bug issue.
less memory usage = done.
Also I and Neeraj still thinking some good ideas to make metroshell more usefull than on our first project (newgen)
djeos546's avatar
ok no problem I'll wait =D All the great programs must be perfect ;P
could you send a beta version so that I could test it plz :? (my email adress is djeos546@yahoo.fr)
