Looks good !

Better as litestep with Gost Theme im currently using under windows. But I don't think that it will be to usefull for ROS because it has been made for another os.
Where do you want ReactOS to go today ?

Newbie Reactos, what is your problem? Have you anything worthwhile to contribute?

For some reason, every time I read a post by Newbie Reactos I feel like I'm listening to Gollum.

As for Ambient, it looks like a very capable and refined piece of software. Some things may be somewhat troublesome, though:
Visual effects
Ambient has various visual effects to make things nifty and smooth. They are heavily optimized to avoid any impact on the general responsiveness. High quality resizing, alpha effects, blurring, .. they all take advantage of MorphOS' graphics subsystem: CyberGraphX.
This would mean that at least the full functionality of Ambient can not be used (at first).

Can we be more focus on ReactOS?

Newbie reactos, pls, shut up! if we talk about other prog, is because we can find out ideas for ROS, the developers are coding but we (the comunity) must help us searching the bugs, looking for insteresting features to eb added, making the ROS atr, or anyother usefull thing instead to be always making stupid comments.
Pls, if u are not going to say anything interesting don't talk!

Excuse my bad english, and if I offend anybody, pls excuse me.

I think that instead of bashing Newbie Reactos, maybe we could make him understand.

This is what I have to say to Newbie Reactos:
1. Go learn programming. You don't understand the absolute, sheer joy of writing freeware.
2. Go find something useful to do, instead of teasing a bunch of programmers.
3. We will not, repeat, NOT, stop working on/supporting this, ever. MorphOS or no MorphOS, 32 bit or 64 bit, Windows or no Windows, Communism or Democrasy. Talking about politics will not convince programmers. We don't understand politics.
4. Go nibble on a bar of chocolate.

I think you're not such a bad person deep inside, It's just that you're really skeptic (and I mean REALLY).
So, instead of continuing to post snide remarks which could lead to this thread getting locked, plus probably your getting banned entirely from this forum, try to be helpful. If you can't be helpful, just don't say anything, ok?
That's a good kid. I knew you'd understand.

You doesn't offend me ;) but you made me to think about my words.
Anyway, came back to my initial question, may some parts of ambience be usefull??
After 26th i'll try to get it working on windows xp, and them on ros.
