I agree. I think ReactOS needs features that are not available on XP natively.dizt3mp3r wrote:Users are easily impressed by a look

users will not be diverted by the classic
theme into thinking ReactOS is
something which it is not.
PNG images for window border (Semi-Transparent),
Aero glass effect, aero peek, aero snap, aero shake.
XP is history nowadays.
So ReactOS is going to need unique and attractive features to impress the users.
Remember first impression is the last impression.
So we must try our best to make the first impression as good as possible.
ReactOS needs supporters in the form of users, devs, donators etc.
So we need a handsome ReactOS.
An unfriendly GUI will result in a negative first impression !
What do you think ?
Future feature Request: When aero glass will be implemented implement it in a way
so that it supports both software
rendering and hardware acceleration.
This way there will be aero glass
available even without a supported
graphics card and gpu.
If DWM is an issue then aero glass will be tough to implement in the current ReactOS architecture.
Then at least add semi-transparent window border.
Aero peek, Aero glass, shake, snap
There is Border Skin also that works like true transparency.
But it depends on .net .
