Re: new website layout contest

My fourth design http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/7833/reactoswebsitedesign4.png This wins my vote. vote++; Agreed. Of all the designs I saw here, this is the only one that looks like a professional redesign. My only quibble: the header "React Operating System" looks strangely out of place. Maybe...

Re: STARTING A DESIGN TEAM

A while ago I was working on making some icons (along with one or two others), but I didn't get enough support (you could even say I was discouraged), and it seemed like the person in charge (user mf) instead wanted to meet with a group of designers in person for that stuff. So now, it makes me not ...

Re: Icons

Ahem, any news? What's the real way this project intends to get a reasonable icon set? Are you going to hire the people from the Oxygen Project (KDE 4) and have them make a theme? Is a developer going to talk to a graphic artist in person and have them do the work? Are we going to have an organized ...

The concept is ok, I think. Using both the laser icon and burn marks might be overdoing it just a bit, but I am not the final say (again, need to contact mf).
Another idea is to have yellow and black (gradients) in four segments covering the entire CD surface.

I suggest actually making the logos slightly transparent, and having the red lines be gradients instead of solid red.

That overall isn't so nice. I'd like to see more of an OS X or Vista shaped pointer. The waiting mouse button could possible be the ROS icon with the electrons moving around the atom, but then maybe it would make an association between ReactOS and waiting for the system.

Well those do look in line with the other icons... the HD DVD format was short lived, but it can't hurt to have the icon... blu-ray logo could be a tad smaller.
But you need to talk to mf about what icons could/would/will be used.

There was a whole other thread going on about the topic, linked to indirectly from my signature you can see below my post. mf is the main guy and he wants OS X slash Vista slash Crystal Project style realism. Basically, photorealistic computer graphics, not photos themselves.

I would dim the white highlights on the recycle bin as it nears the bottom. Computer just looks like a bland old box and monitor from 2000.. how about a cool drawing for that too? The Globe? I guess it delivers what it promises, but it doesn't really look "cool". Firefox? No way. They make their own...

That looks fine, except I'd rather a glass or metal theme than black plastic, and I might re-arrange the buttons for simplicity.

Mac OS X also isnt a system you could use for gaming.. As time goes on, that statement gets less and less true. There are already high end games for Mac from id and EA. MS Flight simulator is replaced by X-Plane. etc. And for any games still windows-only, you can duel boot the mac for win (separate...

That's why it's always a good idea to stay as far away from Windows as possible. Get a Mac. Or try formatting your entire HD (or buy a new one) and only install Ubuntu. If you have any recovery CDs, you could try putting those in and do a non-destructive restore. Best would be to call your manufactu...

How about Mac OS X then? You need Mac hardware and it isn't for someone who builds their own computer, but for updates it's pretty quick and non-intrusive. Better OS than Linux anyway.

Or just use Win 2000 or Win XP with updates turned off. You can install updates every month or whenever you want.

Instead of losing your work because of windows, just install linux! the updates there (and with Mac) aren't automatic and don't often destroy your OS.
