Just curious: what other shells there are available?


<tip type="recovering windows explorer" author="kasimir-k">
If windows explorer stops responding you don't necessarily need to 
reboot your computer thus loosing all unsaved work. Instead you can 
revive explorer:
1. press ctrl-alt-del for task manager
2. on the process list, locate explorer.exe, right click and kill the 
3. from file menu, start new task "explorer.exe", and now you have 
explorer fresh and co-operative.
