Well, on the other side the quality of effects provided by compiz/beril is nowhere near the quality of aero. It looks like before applying any animation compiz/beril downgrade window texture quality. Also compiz/beril is not as well integrated into the OS as aero, its just an compositing framework ...

Further, the 'original' reactos won't have it, but it's up to anyone who can to create something if they want to, it's open sourced, so... but if the idea is to copy windows, and windows now has eye candy, i think it's logical to introduce that in react--especially since the beryl code is opensourc...

i personally would love to see beryl or a beryl-like project ported to react.
not to replace reactos explorer, but to offer an eye candy alternative (a glass alternative).
but i realize that the devs probably want to copy vista instead.

aero

i would personally like to see a beryl type project in the future for react ...

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...

personally i prefer the simplicity that gnome offers. KDE is very windows-esque but frankly, it's kind of bare-bones in its look. where gnome tends to have more of a rounded and glassy look.
