    Is Classic Shell more stable than Open Shell? What does Open Shell do that Classic Shell does not, other than having more recent updates?
    OpenShell is exactly the same, the developer just continued development after the original author of Classic Shell gave up on it.

    If it is exactly the same, what's the sense? How is it better than Classic Shell?

    I tried Open-Shell a year ago and it was rough around the edges.

    I know that OpenShel is closely related to Classic Shell. But since Open Shell has been developed further, does it do anything else that Classic Shell does not? From what I gather, Classic Shell is more stable than Open Shell. Can anyone weigh in?

    My guess is better compatibility with the newer Windows 10 builds

    If it is exactly the same as CS then why use it? I am but when I look at it, I can see nothing that is different, than the name and this .140 is called a Nightly but do not think it updates ever night as it does not. I may go back to Cs.

    Classic Shell had problems with insider builds. OpenShell fixed them. Development of CS has ended while OS has continued so I'd say stay with OS.

    Look at the coding they are practically the same. I did go back to OS 4.4.140 , but I had zero problems with CS in any Insider Build as one never knows if it will work with 20H1 or not. I was even thinking of going back to the MS start. There are ways to make it usable.

    Agreed, MS Start is very usable, just takes a while to get used to using it.
    I'm partial to Start10 myself. Been using it since the first Win 10 alpha or pre-aplha.

    Still using CS at home, both on laptop and desktop. One is 1903, the other is 1809.

    But at work ... CS is not allowed. These laptops are locked down like Fort Knox.

    I've been happy using Classic Start / Shell on all my PCs. However, recently I noticed logins on my 5 year old Dell laptop were taking 10 secs - see Slow Login Troubleshooting.

    I've reduced the login delay to an acceptable 4 secs by disabling the option "Pre-cache icons" in Classic Shell / General Behaviour. Has anyone had this issue or can explain why disabling such a cache makes login faster?
