Do you think the cursor for ReactOS looks kinda dumb?

Cursor is too dinky looking...

Post by gnu_rocky »

I think the cursor image for ReactOS' GUI is too... well... un-Windowzie like. Try a cursor design that looks more like a Windows 2k cusor. Sorry, but I'm very picky with interface elements. :|

I like the current :wink: .
IIRC ROS had the windows-like cursors in previous versions.

We moved away from a Windows style cursor due to worries of copyright infringement.

Yes you told me that, but if we use a cursor thats a little different i think that will be no copyright infringement ...

The Mac OS X cursor is simmilar to the win cursor expect its filled black.

my two cents

the default cursor is a really tacky place to put a logo, even one as cool as the ros logo. fun novelty, but not by default. also default cursor shouldnt be animated :| at least i really hope it won't be. funny, i didn't think it mattered until i read this thread.
