TK Gooey is a replacement shell or GUI (often pronounced
"Gooey" thus the name) for Windows. TK Gooey is based on a centralized aesthetic
whereby the interface consists of a simple circular menu, which allows access
to the other functions of the interface. The simplicity of the design hopes
to increase user productivity, while simultaneously providing something more
attractive than the rather dull looking "Explorer".
Despite its name it is not a true GUI, at least in the system sense
of the acronym. That is to say, TK Gooey does not control anything about
Window appearance outside its own interface. This is currently outside the
programmer's capability, and would probably require replacing the Windows
common control set (which is probably not exactly legal, since it would most
likely involve reverse engineering).
This program is written in VB, and therefore only runs on Windows systems.
This is due to the developer's own misfortune of not starting out learning
language. In the future, the developer, namely me, would like
to port this application to C/C++ (especially for use on Unix systems), once
my knowledge increases suffeciently to do so, or if the community wishes to
assist in porting as well.
