     It's here! B2 is BoS 2.0.
A shell is a program that replaces your taskbar, desktop icons, and start menu with better looking, more functional versions. B2 is no exception. Features include: Skinnable taskbar and menus (3 skins included), animated, scrolling, translucent menus with alpha shadows (even on Windows 98), QuickLaunch tray for frequent functions, shutdown, find, programs, favorites, documents, help, and settings menus, desktop menu, tear off menus (drag the menu titlebar to make it into a window), resizable, movable, docking taskbar, and lots more!
NOTES: Be sure to copy Alphablending.dll and ccrpTmr6.dll to your \windows\system folder. B2 is released under the GPL. Please read Copying.txt if you wish to distribute B2 or use code from it. Also, B2 ONLY RUNS on Windows 98, ME, or 2000.

People must love my code! Three awards for the same code, it's rediculous! However, thanks anyway to everyone who voted. (My not-so-secret plan is to win the award again in December :-)

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
