Version 1.0 Half-Shell Version 1.0
by Troy N. Stephens
Half-Shell is a minimal replacement shell for Microsoft Windows
3.0's Program Manager. Its main design goal is to free up
memory for other applications and, above all,
make Windows load faster!
---- ------- ---- ------
To use Half-Shell, you will need a PC-compatible system with an
80286 or higher processor, running Microsoft Windows 3.0 or 3.1
in Standard or 386-Enhanced mode. Use of a mouse is optional.
Complete, ready-to-print documentation (5 pages) for Half-Shell
is provided in HALFSHEL.WRI (in Windows 3.0 Write format).
You should have the following files:

To install Half-Shell on your system:

your current Windows shell.
