Two Windows shell replacements programs I'm aware of are LiteStep, and Talisman. If you'd like to just change the
entire user interface of Windows, without replacing the explorer.exe shell, there's WindowsBlinds. Give that a go!
If Windows is getting boring for you, why stop at just replacing the shell? Migrate to Linux instead, or buy a Mac!
I know you have RedHat Linux 8.0 installedon at least one of your computers, but that's quite an old distro now.
SUSE Linux 9.0 was released about 3 months ago, so too was what would have been RedHat 10, that being
the distro known as Fedora Core. Since RedHat have ditched their consumer and retail distros, in favour of
this new community driven Fedora Core Linux roject, and FC v1 was officially released not too long ago.
Lindows.com have also released version 4.5 of their sugar coated "Windows like" Linux distro, LindowsOS.
Also, Sun Microsystems have recently released their own Linux distro called Sun Java Desktop System.
Oh, and there's also Mandrake Linux 9.2, but this distro has been known to kill certain CD-ROM drives!

SeaMonkey = Swiss Army Knife: It's versatile, reliable, and contains useful tools.
