LiteStep is a Windows-based replacement for the standard Explorer desktop. It provides great customizability and modularity, giving the user maximum control over their desktop environment.The truth is that this is a piece of software that has earned an entire community base. And while many UNIX window managers and desktop environments can claim that, Litestep exceeds most (if not all) in presenting the user with a host of 100s of modules, themes, and software all built around creating a unified "look-and-feel" :P for your desktop. Litestep.net hit 1,000 themes in early 2001 and the module archive at Shellfront lists between 200-300.
