You can use whatever you like as the Windows shell. You could
probably use notepad.exe, but I'd not recommend it!

I wonder if you are asking about a file management replacement,
rather than a shell replacement.

hadd control of. Couldn't you upgrade it to the previous version,
Windows 98SE ?

No it isn't.
