What are you looking for?

For support, configurability, and theming:
* Litestep

For minimalist:
* Geoshell

The drawback to all shell alternatives is that there is either no graphical configuration or if there is one, it is very limited. If you are making an alternative shell and wish it to be successful, it *must* have a configuration screen.

XML-based UI is also useful. It is easy to modify. Mozilla's UI is build using the XML User-interface Language. You could then theme your shell using CSS or XSL. That would be cool!

stability
customisation
speed

if you're going to include alpha blending and stuff like that, make it optional :)
i would like something easy to customise, so i can have a small, clean workspace to do what i do on my computer. i'm not fussed about looks, need functions.
play about with menu systems, see if you can invent something easier and quicker than a start menu... :)

it is 04:56am local time. why am i still up?!
