Windows most definitely has a shell, Explorer is the default graphical interface to this shell, Windows being a graphical system it is appropriate that its shell has a graphical interface. One can however shift explorer out with another interface to the shell, here for example is a free open source one: http://sourceforge.net/projects/fwshell/ there are a number of these around. One can extend the shell by a number of ways, one intensive but powerful method is through namespace extensions to the shell: http://www.codeproject.com/shell/shlext.asp I have done a little work in this area and found it hard going, mainly as c++ is not my favorite language.

Does Rebol print to shell on linux? (If so maybe Rebol prints to Cygwin shell on windows?)
