it did support roaming profiles.
you would copy the profile to a server and then you had options like "don't download wallpaper" and so on.

i still believe two "application data" folders is confusing. if it is just about roaming vs. local then the two should be clearly defined.

i know what roaming profiles are. NT4 didn't need that separation. and as far as i'm aware of, 2000 didn't split the application data folder either (if it does it hides one of the two) as i could only find one.

Then you would just kill a few hundred of options for ReactOS and part of it's point. how would encapsulating the theme into an archive format limit options? that would just make the themes easier to move around. (the .zip and the folders format is just an example and not limited to those 4 folders).

user profile structure

the current release of reactOS follows the xp style of profiles which, i think, is confusing. for example there is a user_name\application data and there is a user_name\local settings\application data folder. why is this beneficial? this seems redundant and harder to find/back up data. windows2000 w...

this was brought up many times in the past and may even be in the wiki (i don't usually check it). but i would like to see a native ReactOS format. i was thinking like .zip files where the resources are logically structured.

having old sub-systems for older programs is a nice feature, but i think we shouldn't try to be compatible with everything under the sun. the primary focus i think, should be to get and keep compatibility with Win32 and on. besides just because we want binary compatibility with windows doesn't mean ...

In the real world, i identify persons by how they look. In forums, people get a look by choosing an avatar. I like avatars and i would use them. MoKrates i agree with that sentiment. as long as there is a policy against huge or otherwise offensive avatars. when i set up my homepage i picked an avat...
