Re: Trunk Revision 52678

Now, there is a more serious issue. It might be an old one too, but I don't remember. What happened was that after I messed around in the GENS emulator's options and command bar for a while, Reactos hung completely. There was no way to get a task manager nor restart dialog, nor even toggle the keyb...

Sorry,i have to reboot, Windows 7 wants to install 20 updates.

Re: Reactos Criticisms

I hope I don't get attacked or banned for sharing my feelings here. I also hope this gives you all a glimpse of what people on the outside see when they consider us. For god's shake, I didn't know that people see us like tyrants. There is nothing to be afraid. I see a lot of USB work going into the...

BTW I'm the original writer of this info
oh, interesting. so may I assume that as msstyle files are still used, then uxtheme.dll is still used as well?

Re: Reactos Criticisms

There is a Word Press blog out there about a Reactos visitor who feels there are serious problems. But I am not sure if the link is allowed here. Their point of view is insulting and says things I am sure are not allowed to be said here. It is called Reactos Discussion. Just paste the link. Don't w...

Re: How Windows Theming Has Evolved

Thanks for this information. I did not know anything about Aero light. After seeing some screenshots I think that ms just changed the non-themed built in controls appearance to be a bit more elegant. Imo this may still use pure gdi calls to render the new appearance. So I think that it contains only...

Re: Elegant Black - ReactOS Concept

just tip for potential contributors: do not so some work and wait for other people to complete it. If this happened, reactos would be even worse that it is now. If you think that there is some way you can help then please do your best to do as much as you can ;) Pisarz: this doesn't look bad but it ...

Re: Wine's X Window System dependency

You could try replacing win32k.sys user32.sys and gdi32.sys with the arwinss ones, but it will fail for sure why?, so windows can't be customized that way? I was thinking something like Wine for windows but Arwinss its something like that The problem is that arwinss win32k is not compatible enough ...

Hi Swyter! The overall idea look nice. imo it would be better if you replaced the gray gradient with something else Swyter mate, I'm blunt but for a reason.

Re: Win32 server idea

Please stay on topic. And as far I really know, just obtaining the leaked windows source is illegal and you shouldn't be talking about it (especially here)

Edit: disassembling is also illegal in most cases
