Its agreed that childish behavior is bad for ROS Cute twist of words. You should try a job as a politician. but its disagreeable that Plastic Themes are childish. Even when they're called "Kids" ? Come on, stop kidding yourself. i think "kids" is a fun icon set. i didn't realize ROS' icon set neede...

that isn't fischer price. fischer price is the windows xp luna theme. and i think there's confusion between "fischer price" and "cartoonish". the crystal icon set is actually quite popular and i like everaldo's stuff. i no longer have the crystal set tho, currently my objectdock is using his "kids" ...

even better : your PC always starts in 16bit real mode anyway (for POST, BIOS setup and booting) for the various modes of AMD64 processors I found this : http://www.answers.com/topic/amd64 A 64bit OS can indeed run 16bit programs.. if the OS maker did bother. Thanks for pointing that article to me....

Tah-daaahh! http://www.mufunyo.net/reactos/workinprogress.png You can't get this result straight from SVN yet, there are some issues with icons in resource files which GreatLord and me are resolving right now. (Edit: all fixed up - a recent SVN checkout will now produce the above screenshot) So let...

target demographics

I was just thinking of all the governments and schools and home users that would just love to have an easy to use, cheap (ie, free), windows-like operating system. I'm amazed a project like this didn't get started earlier. I'm also surprised that someone isn't making linux easier to use for the aver...

VNC

i think VNC is a natural choice for the terminal services client/server since it's open source.

I kind of like Stardock's idea using PNG files for icons: http://www.stardock.com/products/iconx/iconx-july04.jpg MadRat, i was just going to post that. I LOVE (*heart*) Stardock's ObjectDock. I was using the linux Crystal SVG/PNG icon set and have since switched to the Kids SVG/PNG icon set. I wou...

What if ReactOS converted illegal filenames? For example, IIRC, in web addresses, you sometimes see spaces replaced by %20. So maybe ROS could do something similar. This could maybe be implemented in the file-system drivers? a space for windows is valid for file names but if you post a file with a ...

A 64-Bit OS CANNOT run 16-Bit apps. Its a chip limitation - Not a OS. You CAN run 16-Bit apps in a 32-Bit or 16-Bit OS however. It would have to be compiled out of the 64-Bit version Then why am I able to boot to DOS on my AMD 64 3000+ system? (these are my Windows 98 disk, for diagnostics and DrDO...

1. install dosemu, install win311 on it and you have completely win311. 2. install qemu. install win311 on it. same effect. 3. if it runs under WINE, it may run under reactos anyway. some of the win32 api is based on win16. there are some very basic little applications, which are only using forms, ...

Ah, right. Gnome. On linux the only two filemanagers I use are bash and mc ;). On Windows, I prefer this view: ( see above post ) Of course with all files shown, etc. Filename and filesize are basically the only things I need to know. Sometimes I sort by date modified, but that's it. The MS Explore...

Sorry, Floyd, I read your post completely wrong. I agree with you that a WOW16 layer is important, and I think we both agree the Win3.x subsystem is not. I'm all for being able to run Office 97 on ROS which would require a WOW16 layer if I correctly understand its installer. That's cool. Nothing to...
