the headings for your poll suggest you're a reasonable sort, i'll give you my feedback-

first of all, i like your design. no matter what else i say about it, i do. i like minimalism, i like simplicity. and i like circles a lot.

i don't think it looks like an os screen, and it doesn't make me think about anything related to reactos- or windows. it actually kind of makes me think "macintosh" for some reason.

it looks more like a web design from the font used at the bottom (no dressing of the font makes it look like you're viewing it from a browser) and there is just way too much bright white. good color for the middle... bad for the screen. imo. but i think if you want to make an opening screen you'll have no trouble - this isn't "it" tho.

grab a copy of the reactos logo from the press kit, play around with that, and see what you come up with. did i say too much? :|

Looks great, but why don't you try to put the ATOM logo instead of green circles ?

i don't know how i can use it.
Try to compile reactos svn and replace \drivers\dd\bootvid\bootimage.bmp with it.
It might be possible that it does not look as good when used at bootlogo because you can only use a limted number of colors.
Where do you want ReactOS to go today ?

nah, 256 colors should work...... only problem is whether a default palette is used or the one from the BMP is taken. if it uses the one from the BMP it looks quite OK.

It looks great IMHO. Please make another one with the atom logo if you can - it will become much nicer boot splashscreen then we have now. Why not use this picture as wallpaper :wink: ?
