Kidsmenu is designed to be a child friendly replacement windows shell, and is also functional as a normal launcher-menu application. kidsmenu avoids some of the complexity and danger introduced by the standard windows shell (explorer) when put in front of young children. for example, as there's no start menu, hitting the windows key accidently while playing a game won't show the start menu. (note this functionality currently requires kidsmenu to be running as the replacement shell). And of course, we denizens of Shell City can find more uses for it. For example, how about in computer labs where you don't want the kids to screw anything up?
