eggShell hosted here

eggShell is the successor to our previous Windows Shell Replacement Cloud:9ine. At the moment, development is still very much in the alpha stage, although a few early previews have been released.

General updates will be posted to the main site (, however - if you're interested in keeping an eye on development progress, this is the place to be.

DR-1 released

DR-1 is now available for download. Brief testing today on Windows95 still showed a problem with the "Error 9 Bug", but I've decided to go ahead with the DR-1 release anyway in the hope that the bug is now confined to just Win95.

geoTraySpy added!

In order to get the most out of Stardust you really need to run it as your default shell. Obviously, as it's only in alpha development at the moment, this isn't really practical. The next best thing therefore is to use the geOTraySpy utility to allow stardust access to the system tray content. Full source and installation instructions are included in the zip - PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE READ THE INSTALLATION GUIDE - it contains important licencing and usage information.
