Re: I finally figured out how to make Win7 not suck; might be ready to say goodbye to XP

Classicshell is now openshell, and still being worked on. You should also look at 7+ taskbar tweaker. "Network activity indicator" gets you blinky network lights back. Void tools everything replaces all forms of MS search, and does a better job. I use a custom compile of explorer++ to replace the jo...

Re: ReactOS Mattermost!

Did anyone test mattermost web client with seamonkey?

I ask because I wanted to see what it looked like, but does not work on SM2.49.4
I have no script installed, but reactos.org is whitelisted, and no other domains are shown in it's popup list.

Re: Trying to get companies to support ReactOS

Another approach that may work better. Ask the companies to try recent versions of Reactos, and get feedback from them over what fails. This would give those trying to get driver support working a proper list of what really happens during driver install. The chip makers have all the info for what is...

Re: Aspects of Vista/7/8/10 that should NOT be ported to React

Speaking as a long time computer user, the number one thing I do not want to see ported to ReactOS from MS, is attitude. They made their initial money in destroying IBM's captive vertically integrated effective monopoly. They aided personal computers going from text terminals slaved to mainframes, t...

Re: How to build ReactOS explorer for Win7?

A temporary solution that might work you is explorer++, which is open source and can be customized. I use it along with classicshell, network activity indicator and 7+ task bar tweaker, together they give me most of what I want/need. Not sure if they will work you until Reactos goes beta, but they j...

Re: Can development focus be switched from XP to Windows 10?

Speaking strictly for myself, stating my own opinions. I find Windows through XP to be designed for the personal computer. That is, for the individual. For home computers to be used as real computers, adapted, customized, yet generic enough to be recognizable. Which is to say it has a work flow in m...

Re: In the event Microsoft decides to open source Windows

Hello all, I am new here. This may be a little long winded, but I want to be clear. I also gloss over a lot of detail, and present in a simplified manner, because it is not directly relevant. First let me make my own opinion known. Windows as an OS is dead. Starting with Vista, it has gone from empo...
