Re: NT 6.1 Like Design :)

If people think that, no such thing as WinNT design would not exist. :) The term "design" is not limited to aesthetics, and there already was (and I belive there still is room for more) design improvement in ReactOS compared to Windows.

Re: NT 6.1 Like Design :)

This is one more of those designs, that present itself with abundence of graphic decorations on a space that's suppose to be the workspace. You know, that's fine to please your eye for the first twenty seconds or so, but this is an operating system, not a renaissance painting.

Microsoft & others ("amici") are affiliating with Oracle supporting "some" level of copyright to avoid chaos: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/02/microsoft-foresees-chaos-if-google-v-oracle-result-stands/ Without copyright, amici and similarly situated companies would be forced to retrench an...

Re: Website Revamp: Your feedback is very needed !

All newsletters and news items need to be reimported. I was actually expecting to have another week to sort out that before the site went live. The date at which the last newsletter article was issued needs to be fixed. I don't keep track of the newsletter numbers and that "old news" displayed on t...

BG on reddit

Bill Gates opened himself a reddit account: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1 ... nda_gates/
...and seems keen to answer all kinds of (IMHO stupid) questions. Nobody asked anything on ReactOS so far.

Re: ReactOS once again on Slashdot

I'd like to see there be a lot of project assignments to have working the various parts of ReactOS That's an interesting idea/strategy.

Re: Reactos Update (Was: ReactOS applications needed?)

Two notes: - "The level of the whole ReactOS" doesn't work if there are files missing. Such files might be missing because the user's choice (and such choice is allowed, isn't it?) - Files can be hashed avoiding the white changes in PE binaries, and the pool of those files and their contained sectio...

I noted that this “may not be consistent with th...
