I guess this is sort of a 'thank you and I'm amazed you're still alive' sort of post.
Before I abandoned windows and became a linux user, litestep was my shell replacement of choice - I used it for years to make my desktop easier and nicer to use. I've continued watching the project ever since I stopped using it, and have watched it (at least on the surface) slowly die out in development and popularity.
To be honest, I was shocked to find this site and to even know that there were still litestep developers out there!
All I can say is, keep up the good work, and thank you for all your hard work to date.
