    Cshell is all Windows though, just stripped down into components to be packaged in different ways for new form factors (i.e. Andromeda, Polaris, etc.) So Andromeda will never run on a lightbulb, but Cshell might provide the basis for Windows to run on a lightbulb.
    That isn't correct either. Take a look at the image I provided in my response to Magnus above.

    CShell is nothing more than a Continuum enabled UWP app.

    CShell is launched at the end of the Windows boot process, just like explorer.exe (the Win32 shell) is today. CShell has absolutely nothing to do with managing UI windows nor anything to do with creating the UI elements (dropdown, checkbox, etc) which apps use to composite/display a UI.

    CShell creates and manage things like the start menu, virtual desktops, and the task bar. Because CShell supports continuum it can adapt these elements to different screen sizes. That's it.

    Andromeda is focused on the layers below CShell.

    Aaah I see. So I was confusing Cshell with WCOS? I think that makes sense now. Thanks for the info a5cent!

    Me too. I'm a software guy, but if it isn't SQL Server or Dynamics, count me out!

    I realize we're completely off topic at this point.

    If it's something else you're unhappy with I'll need that to be pointed out in a more literal way as my sarcasm-meter irreparably broke years ago. Sorry.

    Nah, we're all good bruh. Pardon my sarcasm, I feel like this thread has evolved (or devolved) into a mock trial with opposing counsel throwing haymakers at each other.
