The screenshots of the ui parts were on a experimental ubuntu distrubution. That we was doing alongside the ReactOS base to compare how well things worked in the official wine when compared to ReactOS. It was a much better idea to move back to ReactOS since it was literally a windows envoirement to begin with.The GNOME was an experiment. We were experimenting with a linux WINE build to see how we could get several UI demonstrations to work on wine without hitches. We decided (in kindness, since we thought it would help) to move BACK to ReactOS and build against its version of the modified WINE userland. We updated the site with screenshots of ElementOS in its working form on ReactOS. Believe them or not, they were real. (The credibilty will be backed up since the shell will be released soon)
I am certainly not offended, I made some promises about releasing ElementOS and I broke them; I sincerely apoligize to members of ReactOS who wanted to try ElementOS out. I empathize with the ReactOS community on how things look right now.
I take offence when I am sworn at or have unneeded comments made at by users such as Ged.
Our best way of making up for this is releasing Element Desktop, which hopefully will provide ReactOS users the same enjoyable experience that can be found on Windows operating systems.
In my spare time (that is , when I get time.) I will try to contribute further to the ReactOS and submit much better patches than the ones I have already done.
