Hello, ConLenov, EnterWINE, cuchma19 or now ElijahMahone

We know about your pull request as you already did gain some attention in there. (https://github.com/reactos/reactos/pull/2414)
I have no problem with another theme and adding it is possible of course. But the problem we have then is that in the end after a few months the ISO will become a theme collection more than a OS. So I can vote for adding it, but don't take this a accepted only by that. RAPPS addition of course always is a possibility.

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

The only problem with RAPPS - we don't have any screenshot/preview features here.

If you add the Breeze theme to ReactOS, nothing terrible will happen. The Breeze theme takes up 1 MB. After adding the Breeze theme, ReactOS will remain ReactOS

The problem becomes when many people all have their pet project or favorite theme that they also want included in the ISO. ReactOS right now is around 100 MB. If there were even 10 additional themes at 1 MB a piece that's 10% more stuff to download every time, at 10% extra time to do it. 10% more space is then used, etc... As a tester, there are days that i download dozens of different versions of ROS. I don't need to be wasting unnecessary time and storage space.

I agree with the idea of adding themes to RApps instead. Then it's independent from the ISO and people can freely download whatever theme they'd like after installation.
