Re: 64 bit builds?

What will happen with ReactOS under 64bit and 32bit programs? Is there any plan for a wow32 system?

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

I don't like ribbon's concept at all but if you really want a ribbon control, we can have a poor man's ribbon control like this (demonstrated with VB6): http://xs139.xs.to/xs139/09186/poorman-ribbon601.png Try MS Office 2007 first then you can see how it acts. It's more than just an expanded toolbar.

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

The version of pain with the ribbon in Windows 7 is a much needed update and much better than the old one. For those who don't like it, I would recommend trying it before they make their minds. It's not an overkill, and adds many more features without the complexity and bringing them to the user. Fo...

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

If it works on XP, and ReactOS, I don't see the need to check if it works with every version of windows (cause how far back do we stop? win 3.11? win 1?). By then the apps become bloat wear, over developed and with no purpose.

Re: OpenGL acceleration on Reactos with Vbox Video drivers

I think it would be a good adition to have those drivers. After all they are open source and help develop more interest in the project (having decent 3D performance always does).

Re: non-GPL compliant ROS distros on eBay?

When he is advertising it as a replacement for WindowsXP (when it can't be used as a main system yet), running 99+% of software and all that, then ReactOS does have a responsibility to react to it. Firstly it will damage the name of the current software project (creating a dislike for it), people co...

Re: New idea

Your display options add clutter. The thing about windows 7 people like is there is less clutter (same with OSX). If you can do the same with less controls, then do that.

Re: categorised start menu

Considering how long I have seen it take people to find things and I am waiting for them just to find the item, I see it as a good idea. I have it set up in Vista and done so for many many years.

Re: additional icons (related to tango desktop project)

While I do like the power one, I just have some issues. They need to have the same style. The lighting in the two is different (which also makes me ask questions about if one came from another source...).

Is there an update to this program? I love it except that the network section is constantly off (false setting and does not work when I change it).

Re: ReactOS Exploder?

Explorer should stay explorer, as people know what it means. Exploder has a totally different meaning, so it's just doing something for some bad reason. If it's a decompression program, than it's a great name. But explorer is for exploring... that's why it has that name!
