TIMN did a nice composite, too. Is there any real reason that the logo needs a couple of opposing electron pairs?

This logo + electrons could be a nice logo for reactos, current logo is quite outdated i think. I have to agree here, the current one was never all that pretty except to the legacy ROS designers. Now that mf is no longer in charge of prettying up the GUI, it would be nice to get rid of the horrid s...

Ged's moving in the right direction.

I love the CLI built into the explorer window!!

Why does the sub-menu bar need maximize, minimize and close buttons?

Some people have obviously never seen the giant ntuser.dat files generated by users that rely on roaming profiles. I've seen them grow into the hundred megabyte range. Add on the folders for internet, desktop, and My Documents and people often grow their personal profile well into the gig range. Peo...

Emblems over the icons are cool and add no real performance degradation, too. Would be nice to see them implemented on a transparent level of interaction with the OS.

The dreaded wait for loading a roaming profile. Ahhh, the days desktops were 1 gb and the lan connection 4 meg toekn ring... Seriously, you defined the extent of you roaming profile at the server. You could still used locally unique settings in the same user profile. You could even mix mandatory set...

I like XP's desktop with a smidgeon of IceWM and KDE element added to it.

Gaf animations are basically multiframed and multilevel bitmaps. The image is drawn bottom level on up, which simplifies overall design of the animations considerably. They've been used in various games like total annihilation (for explosions) and are not slow to be rendered at all. Implementation i...

Just make it so the Reactos GUI can use the current set of Firefox themes, that will go a long ways for most. :)
