Re: "Funny Screen Of Death"?

we could use the BSoD screensaver from X.org, when reactos is stable. It would be mighty cool.

btw, I mean, as a screensaver only! lol

Re: Start Menu and Skinning Compatibility

the biggest joke is, windows7 uses a virtual machine for XP compatibility.

Any program that depends on the XP start menu is not really useful on reactos/vista/windows 2000. Why? because the only programs that do are built to change the XP start menu! lol.

Re: Launchpad.net, and an Idea (not for flame war!!!!)

sorry if, it seems offensive, I'm just saying, that it's obvious from the responses i got that there is a lack of knowledge, thats all. I hope I'm understood. My "waiting for someone who knows what they are talking about" is not meant to be "oh you idiot!" but rather "okay, I realize we are not on t...

Re: Launchpad.net, and an Idea (not for flame war!!!!)

rolandixor, if you really wanna talk about this, you can try to join #reactos and #reactos-dev and ask Fireball, he will point to you to the correct Dev. Most of our Devs arent in the forums,and most of the answers you red here doesnt come from Devs. Thank you! Finally an answer that makes sense! :...

Re: Launchpad.net, and an Idea (not for flame war!!!!)

You have to realize, ReactOS would have to be put under a different SVN Type (Bazaar), which can be found at the following URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bazaar_(software) lol, Bazaar isn't svn :lol: That doesn't matter, it's still a Revision Control System. Besides, ReactOS devs can't handle al...

all I can say is L O L. I'll wait till someone who knows what they are talking about comes along. I don't think I'm being understood, and until then this post will appear as completely pointless. You don't DOWNLOAD PPA's. They are used for building software. The software is then distributed from the...

Re: Launchpad.net, and an Idea (not for flame war!!!!)

well, there are two reasons this is no problem. 1, the source of reactos doesn't need to be moved. 2, it's easy to convert. may I further add that it's not only about code hosting. Launchpad provides a whole lot more that would be beneficial to the project. And it (my idea) has nothing to do with li...

Launchpad.net, and an Idea (not for flame war!!!!)

I was thinking, I use launchpad, and it has a lot of stuff reactos could use! Maybe, if Canonical works with ReactOS, then they could possibly provide ReactOS style PPA's for ReactOS programs. Anyway, that's a bit of a small rant. Now, I know that most people don't want to see the fancy desktop on R...

Re: A large list of suggestions ideas, and more.

When i read your first post, rolandixor, i INSTANTLY knew that you are a Linux-User. Linux users always want "new colors" "new menus" "a new modern style"....bah ! Bah...I - for myself - find that the explore of ROS like it's now, is VERY WELL DONE ! It looks very great, I see no need of a face-lif...

Re: A large list of suggestions ideas, and more.

lol seems I've started a problem :( not my intention! I'm a linux user, who thinks ReactOS is kule. By the way, GTK is written in C, if I remember correctly. In future versions, GTK+ libs could be included to make programs like abiword easier for new users to set up. Not so? as for the rest, I reali...

Re: A large list of suggestions ideas, and more.

another idea for the future. At about beta stage, ReactOS should ship in two versions. One, a full desktop OS (meaning with apps to get the user started, like how linux distros do it), and one like the current, slim version. This would help in getting real results. Shipping applications lets users f...

this is not for immediate consumption so to speak. I understand how hard it is to develop such projects. I'm just putting out some ideas that we can work toward in the future.

Re: File Management

I like dogs, but we learned from windows XP that people don't like to see them. I suggest we get some variety. Various animals (even dogs) could be used. I suggest also that we name most of the ReactOS applications after ReactOS itself, as well as showcase the technologies related to it. For example...

A large list of suggestions ideas, and more.

Okay, I'll extend this over time. But after long hard thought, I think what reactos needs is to pull in the power of the Open Source community in a larger way than it does now. For example. There is the power of launchpad.net, the power of the linux community, and so much more out there, that is ava...
