Question - has it been decided which CMS is official? I don't know which website i'm supposed to be looking at... The Typo3 one looks fancier, but the Drupal version seems more functional.

I just tried new.reactos.org with FF 10.0.11 on Linux and there seems to be a slight overlapping between the login box and the website text:

(On the other hand, that happens not only here - I just noticed, it happens on 666kb.com, too, so I am not sure, is it a "general mistake" made by some website design tool, or is it really FF.)

I think its a FF problem since it looks good in Dooble 1.37 and in my Android phone 4.0.1

I like the "Navigation"menu shadow from Typo3. Will you add it to the Drupal one?
I like the round corners from Typo3. Are they going to be added to the Drupal one? :)
I like the floating Header from Typo3. Is the Drupal header going to be floatable?
And finally I like how the links are placed in Typo3 more than in Drupal:
-The Header should have the Main/Global categories(Community/Development/Downloads)...
-..while Navigation/Quick links should point to subcategories inside those Main ones.

No

Flaoting header? Like, you scroll the contents, and header stays?

No, it's quite different thing and was made especially so. The header has links to the different portal services - Main, Forums, Wiki and JIRA. You need to be able to switch between them whenever you are, easily. From "Main" you can navigate to information pages.

Ag, huge waste of screen space, and that is not how normal web pages work.

Especially considering that nearly all laptops go with a widescreen instead of the classic 4:3, which makes vertical space a precious thing.

It seems that the Drupal version will be chosen, because Danny has dropped his work on typo3.

Now, testman and getbuilds are also visually integrated to Drupal.

The only thing I would change is the favicon [ external image ]. Maybe someone of you could create a new one.
But you can't use the current logo, because when you resize it, it doesn't look very nice.

First few minutes spent on the new website, I like it :-) Thanks fireball!

EDIT: some changes I noticed, just in case they escaped your attention:
- "testman" says "Could not establish the DB connection" and does not work
- CompatDB does not exist (I found link to "reactos.org/compat" somewhere, the wiki homepage links to "reactos.org/support", neither works)
- "doxygen" is broken CSS-side, but does work
- in "wiki" the ROS logo in upper-left corner doesn't show ( http://new.reactos.org/sites/all/themes ... s-logo.png vs http://reactos.org/sites/all/themes/zen ... s-logo.png )
- wiki doesn't show me as logged in even though the rest of the page does
- mailing lists are integrated, but only header works, rest just 404 BSODs

Mailing list archives pages are missing.

Why am I seeing a url loading from fucking facebook on my status bar when I navigate the forums?
