Re: Can there be a better GUI?

Why not something clean and eligant, yet simple and modern more in the vain of http://www.theverge.com/2012/2/24/2822891/windows-desktop-ui-concept . This is in my opinion how the Desktop of Windows 8 should have been. It takes Metro Concepts but makes it work in a Desktop mode. It is simple and sho...

Re: I learning C++ i have some question about Reactos

%windir%\explorer.exe "open::Run.command"? The explorer shell is eventually either going to be replaced or undergo heavy rewrite(s) before much of these type of commands will work as in windows. ReactOS current shell does not work as a complete Windows Shell replacement and has many unimplemented p...

[idea] Windows 7 Aero Snap

I know there is no DWM (Desktop Window Manager) implemented at this time, I would suggest an Aero Snap like feature be added to ReactOS even without DWM if possible (maybe an integration into Explorer or Explorer-New)? Sorry if I were better at C I would delve in for such a feature. I think this is ...

Re: Vista Design possibly

Just a question, is the New ReactOS explorer supposed to be compiled with XP style themes, Vista styles, Windows 7 styles (I assume they are similar to Vista styles. It might be really nice if the new explorer was able to make a similar taskbar as Windows 7 just to stay up to data and with the curb....

Re: 1:1 MSPaint clone - not ? but !

Probably because the only way to write an application using Ribbon right now is to do it through MFC, not Win32. I was just asking to wonder if cloning something why not clone the newest version to date. However the reason give above is sound. I agree that it is not needed at this time. When ReactO...

Re: 1:1 MSPaint clone - not ? but !

Why not develop a MSPaint clone on the most updated one, in Windows 7 with full ribbon and all? There are a few nice features in that version like moving objects around a bit more than previous versions. I do however think that your version is great. It is smaller than the MSPaint on Vista in size a...

Re: Clinging to Windows Classic

I find that the Search command doubles as the run command if used effectively. It even adds more functionality in my mind. I like not running the run prompt. Notice it is off by default. You can add it back on the start menu, but what is the point. The Search will search and double as the run prompt...

Re: 1:1 MSPaint clone - not ? but !

You ought to look at the Windows 7 MSPaint. It looks to be a great improvement over the classic MSPaint. It also looks like it would allow plenty of room for more options if you wanted. It being ribbon based gives it a lot of room to add more tabs if you implemented something new. Otherwise it looks...

Re: STARTING A DESIGN TEAM

I also think that something unofficial is the wrong route. I saw ArtGuys work when made. It looked great at the time. Perhaps a seperate project could be made to build upon the ReactOS New Explorer . If the devs approve and it works in Windows first, ReactOS second then it could be imported like we ...

Re: New god design, than old reactos design

The core ReactOS install will always come with the 2K design by default. Other themes could be found using: A) The Download! app. B) A similar, purpose-built "theme download" app. C) Desktop right click -> Properties -> Themes -> "Search for more themes online" button. 3rd-party distros could inclu...

Re: New god design, than old reactos design

I voted for a Vista Aero look, because after using it and as an IT/Network Technician I find vistas approach refreshing and definitely better than previous version. I have been doing work since Dos/Win 3.x days, and find Vista a great design. I also think that reactOS needs to stay open to the newes...

Re: Vista Design possibly

I really like the idea of the Vista interface. It is so much better than the XP one. I have tried using Mac OS. We even had apple come out to our School District I work for and try and sell us Mac servers, MacOS client laptops and such. I really was not that impressed with the interface. I at first ...
