Gladiators Software announces the release of most awaited Aston product - Aston shell, software that replaces the standard Windows desktop and makes it more usable, beautiful and customizable. Many Windows users find the standard desktop too rigid and inflexible. Aston offers the completely unique approach with yet unseen features and themes with live wallpapers.
The basic feature that makes it so unique is that Aston is fully skinnable and customizable. You can freely choose from many themes and pick the one that suits you the most. If you want to give your designing skills a try you can even make your own themes. The advanced skinning engine is very intuitive and your imagination is the only limit. Every element of the theme: menu, desktop, panels - all can be tweaked and customized, thus letting one create yet more convenient working area.
Widgets push the limits of usability and customization even further. You want to know the weather forecast, your system resources or something else - no problem!
