[idea] Windows 7 Aero Snap

Post by Bond007s » Tue May 25, 2010 7:38 am

I know there is no DWM (Desktop Window Manager) implemented at this time, I would suggest an Aero Snap like feature be added to ReactOS even without DWM if possible (maybe an integration into Explorer or Explorer-New)?

Sorry if I were better at C I would delve in for such a feature.
I think this is the best feature from any Vista/XP upgrade to 7.

So i agree, that it look very nice.

MS NT 4.0 style (windows 95) is soo old.

I have read that someone(s) made an Aero Snap for XP and Vista at
http://www.aerosnap.de/index_eng.htm
This does require .NET 2.0 and alternative shells are not supported at this time. Maybe this person could be contacted to add the feature to ReactOS Shell or wherever would be the right place at this time at least until we have full blown DWM (assume this resides in DWM).

I like the Idea. Came from Compiz/Ubuntu originally. Microsoft perfected it. Looking to see it in ROS 8-)
