Re: New theme was added

Haven't seen a screenshot yet but i have read its based off the look of Windows 10.
Personally I'm not really a fan of the Windows 10 design, but to each their own i suppose.

Also it looks like it has 2 names Polar & Modern or is that a misunderstanding?

Re: Low Electric Computer Discussion

For a ReactOS possible machine it will have to be XP compatible and that means using older hardware. For example lower power mini form factor ITX motherboards but it will still need to have a PSU. Battery operation will not be a usable option. See this thread for guidance: http://www.tomshardware.c...

Re: Real hardware 0.4.9

You can know the usb driver your mother board is using by seeing the debug log to text file mode, as it is dumped at boot time. will keep in mind when testing things out about the web browser, you could try Midori Haven't quite got it to run yet will probably figure it out soon, considering many ap...

Re: Real hardware 0.4.9

Haven't decided on the board i want to buy yet but they will probably have USB 2.0/3.0 being new devices i don't know if there is any way to trick React OS into believing they are 1.1, probably not?
