It's software that transforms the kinda dumb, monopolistic MS Windows environment into a whole new universe.
It's one of those computer innovations that seems too good to be true. But it is true...

I have been using Evolution for a week now, and have used Litestep as an alternative shell for about 2 years. The biggest difference is Evolution is NOT a shell, but rather an interface. It isn't a static desktop where you add/change modules or backgrounds and have multiple virtual windows.
Alternative shells can cause compatibility issues and problems and are difficult or impossible for some users. Evolution uses Explorer, and Windows is always instantly available (handy if you have a boss nearby).
It's more like NextStart, WindowBlinds and an mp3 jukebox/ripper. Any and everything can be linked to a program/action/list, including jpg, gif, or bmp's. But don't try to look at it from a Litestep perspective or you'll miss the whole point.
This is total creative control.

Well, I've checked "Evolution" out from ''CodeName: MANA LLC''......Very nice!
I spent a bit making my own theme and I have to say Yes, it's very easy to use. I was pleased with the tutorial it gave.
It is not a shell replacement, but rather a EXE program. It actually sits on top of your normal windows. In fact, you can switch between the two. This would be a great alternative for those who don't want to spend the effort with Shell programs such as Litestep.
There are still some things I'd like to see added to Evolution. But overall...Very nice program.

Whoa! This is cool.
Forget the boring Windows Desktop. With Evolution you can rig up your own desktop...
Evolution is not the same as Litestep which replaces the entire Windows shell, but a desktop that operates within Windows.
You can install Evolution so that it runs upon starting Windows. In this way, you have the possibility at all times of switching over to the Windows Desktop.
When Evolution starts for the first time you begin with an empty desktop, and are helped by a simple tutorial to create your own desktop step by step.
You can try out this ingenious program for 30 days at no charge.
