I think Explorer is being developed by Martin Fuchs. Maybe this web site will be of some use to you:

Explorer is quite OK in XP

Hello, have you tried ROS Explorer in WinXP, it's quite alright actually, there is more problems with lacking functionality in the underlying systems. Read the info in http://www.sky.franken.de/explorer and try it yourself.

ok i will upgrade thhis list with screenshots to make it easy to understand my problem.
you know... my bad english... :]


1. after i open "My Computer", when i double-click an icon (folder/file) the right-click menu pops up in the upper-left corner.
it happens only once.

2. when i try to drag some file somwhere and then let it go, the mouse pointer seems to stay in the drag-mode, and i can't move the file....

3.some times in the list-view, when i try to close the explorer window, it stays open, and the whole desktop stops refreshing it self.

more errors comming soon.
hope i helped you a little, if you want i can record it in a smal wma movie

c ya ! and thx for the support

I do see no acceptable reason for cloning the "Exploder", or even using
it. It is not only buggy (the MS's one), but also highly misconcepted,
and totally obsolete ( I do NEVER use it). So I would prefer developing the
kernel, and the SW / HW / Drivers compatibility.

Do not BUY / CRACK / USE Longhorn or Winedowns XP, use ROS &
FreeDOS.

I'd think LiteStep would work in pretty well with ReactOS, at least as a temporary/alternative shell.

I don't agree, I love MS exploder, the taskbar, the start menu, quicklaunch, favorites etc. (if it's properly configurated. windows XP default is terrible, windows 2000/2003 default is nice, and great when tweaked)

Well, i think that te beauty of open source software is due to the possibility of freedom integration. I think is time to involve other project's developers to build a rock solid, simple and usefull shell for ReactOS (and, why not, Windows systems). So check out these links:

SharpE :shock:
GeoShell
Emerge Desktop
bb4win.org
xoblite
Blackbox
BEOSWin
BoS

DarkStep
Virtual Dimension
TaskSwitchXP Pro
VirtuaWin
UplinkDesktop
ShellWM
Babya System
NexMander

other (with sources)

...need more ? 8)

Well, this statement isn't entirely accurate, ROS explorer does support it, but not the underlying ROS functions.
If ROS explorer runs on XP all the complaints above will be working, ROS explorer is actually quite good!

What we need is some development done to make ROS more compatible to windows, or actually implement all functions, more developers please!
