Release 0.38 new Boot design...

Post by Davy Bartoloni » Sun Jan 04, 2009 9:58 pm

i think old Boot on 2009 can be changed... or not?

i wrote some 256-Bitmap that can replace the old 5.bmp...

the result is this:

Very nice! I love both wallpapers and would like to see them in the 0.3.8 release.

And also, is that taskbar part of ReactOS now or is a concept? (love it all the same)

the windows7-like taskbar is a simple application that i wrote last week.. .. the original reactos-explorer-bar can simply "changed" to this one.. but.... standard ReactOS-Explorer is not longer developed.. i think.

i'm writing this BAR for an italian-distro of ReactOS... ( howewer i'm waiting for ufficial release 0.38 )

Hey Davy, good job! I preferred this one (http://www.wcn.it/back2.bmp) to the last one you posted because I like very much ray's effect... in your last wallpaper this effect is lower :(

Quite nice.
Are you putting the light in upper right instead of usual upper left for a purpose?

I think it has an obvious purpose:

In Design we know people cross the sight from upper left corner to down right corner. That´s why people usually have Desktop icons placed on the Left side. A Wallpaper Design must be neutral where Desktop icons are set(indeed in a Plain Color),so the ray is perfectly placed.A ray crossing the screen from Upper Left to Down Right corners will annoy user eyes.

yes.. upper-right must remain a quiet place for icons.. and eyes. :)

( I am not convinced of the rays-wallapaper, i try it on mi win..and the white light at the top seems too strong.. )

back2.jpg with the white light at bottom is better...

this is a more-dark version with the light on bottom...

Very nice... the wallpapers especially... but...
The windows-7 like taskbar can only be used if it is C (and MAYBE if it is C++).
Also, it must be open source, and, as windows 7 aint released yet, it not useful to the dev team much (as yet).
BUT... if it's an alternative shell that is user-installed I have no objection! Nice work!
