New Start Menu

Why dont you do away completely with the bottom start bar, time, etc. Rather when right clicking the mouse anywhere on the background or screen it will bring up the start menu with its icons. Natuarly if you click on the left top it will open towards the right etc. Even better allow some editing of ...

Drivers for the various m/b, snd,nic,vga, etc

Why does the reactos team not utilize the driverpacks freely available. You could even liase with driverpack.com. the packs are free to be used when you want to burn a bootable Win XP Cd. You might get MS legal problems but normaly its only a small part of these packs. (USB2). There is enough usb2 d...
