Indeed. The openSUSE setup seems to have downloaded it, too. I'll create another variant.
And you'll get a Russian version despite. That's why I decided to use the text from the front page: To ease up translation.

Suggest a better one. And please: Keep the floor dry! We're not Apple!

No problem!
But let's wait until the design is finalized.

I have added links to the 3rd version to my first post.

I like both of these, the only thing I'd add is that we'll still be on CD for a long time until needing to use a DVD media... ;)

Great!
These two designs are indeed excellent ... for retail.

Don't misunderstand me, both look perfect. But don't forget that we're in alpha stage.
And I don't think that anyone who has just downloaded and burned a ReactOS CD will buy one of this over-sized unhandy DVD cases for it, bind a handbook, print out and fold a paperboard box to put everything in, glue it, tear it open as if it was a Christmas present and then install the system.
I just tried to find something that can be used here and now and looks somehow similar to the proposed web design.

But for a final or at least a late beta version your designs are perfect.

I expected such reflection ;) To be honest I don't know why I did the sketch it in the first place. Boredom probably.

I like both, but its too early for ROS to be placed in such nice Boxes :-P
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes

I fully intend to get a live cd - print the media and make my box...lol. :) Early or not...heck I may even print out a box from superdog's design...

And I created the design for the same reason....boredom mostly.

Just realized that another moth has passed.

These are the Inkscape-SVGs (only displayed correctly in Inkscape) and the English version I created four weeks ago:

I like the Aero Glass effect you've used in the design, very shiny and simplistic.

If only ReactOS's GUI was like that. Sigh.
