    when you turn on your psp it shows icons for video/image/game/ect.
    this is usually referred to as the psp os (operationg system)

    a shell is an application you load just as if you were loading an emulator
    and once its open it allows you to play videos on your psp / view images / play music / launch games / launch umd
    it sometimes has things included in it that the sony os does not (such as background support and skinning support)

    some shells are = psix, psp-oss, artillery shell, ir shel, mbshell

    Do they override the psp os or are they apps that you load up off of the mem card.

    psp-oss is the prettiest, but IR shell takes screenshots and has a built in remote

    not really
    ir shell allows you to use the ir port of the psp to control things around the home
    cant really think of any other add ons right now from shells

    when it comes to visuals psix owns but its nor free for the full version
    psp-oss is prolly the best for free but its still got some bugs that get anoying
