Aston is a program that lets you switch between your ordinary desktop and the one that looks astoundingly different. No, not really quite different as it has the same icons and the start menu in their proper places. It's the additional features that make Aston desktop more fun to work with. There are quite a few of them: a different tray manager, nice-looking shortcuts to frequently used programs in the upper toolbar, different desktop themes available for you to pick something more attractive than the default bluish thing.
The program works seamlessly and doesn't take to load as slowly as some of other desktop managers do. You can always switch from one desktop to another, the only problem is that you have to log off and log on every time. Try this tool today and see that for yourself.
