When your chasing a moving target, you want to aim for the next thing, not the previous thing... By not chasing Vista or its predecessors (If Microsoft releases betas it would be more possible to stay up to date) ReactOS will be doomed to "last generation" APIs and sometimes technology. I know what...

Some aspects of Vista are nice, such as the volume control and audio system in general (my speciality area! :lol: ) I suspect this could be implemented without making ReactOS too Vista-ish. In fact, given that each Windows release builds on top of the previous, it's probably possible to implement t...

I class it as too early for advertisement in a large way. Ok that is my option. Markets of target in expected order. Embedded. Reason they have more controlled hardware. Virtual Machine. Users for product demonstrations and the like. Then home and server users. You ad is missing the target. From my...

The correct path to take - and stuff that is missing

Vista is NOT important yet. Nor is vienna(codename for the next version of windows). What we need is to try and make ReactOS 50% compatible(or better) with Windows XP Home and Profesional, and Windows Server 2003. (64-bit is not important yet, so I didn't mention pro x64 edition). Why? Because until...

This is (IMHO) an incredibly premature discussion... what it looks like isn't nearly as important as how it works. Having said that... I was curious to see the UXTheme.dll in my ReactOS\System32 folder too... which is what lead me here. I've been skinning Windows since Windows 95, and TBH I think t...

Yeah, kevintrooper is right. That's what I made the wiki for. Besides, andrewweb, many of the icons you posted probably aren't going to be in the icon set for one reason or another, regardless of whether it's a nice piece of art. Yes I agree completely. But all I am doing is taking what I find good...

Slides icon.

Here's my attempt at making an icon for Slides (the picture viewer). I'm not sure how good it would really be in small sizes, or what exactly you want, but here it is, for any feedback. http://www.reactos.org/wiki/images/7/7b/Slides.png I quoted this from another post, this is the best slideshow ic...
