Here's the update ;) There shouldn't be any problems now with the text, and the screen-shot has been changed to FF5b7 from FF4. It includes a version with the original text for future editing, as well as a all-curves .svg and rendered .png.

looks good. I suppose 0.3.13 still has the blue squares around desktop shortcut icons/labels/names, 0.3.14 or 0.4.0 likely not anymore.

uhm. why having the version on the cover? Why not making a simple one that can be reused for the newest version?

naums, The cover is 100% reusable ;) You just edit the text, or delete it if you want to. I made it with Inkscape for that reason. Updating it to a new version would only take about 10 minutes, if you don't include making new screen-shots.

yep, I see. I did a little homework booklet-Cover (please don't leave me behing, google) with your design. If there is any intrest in it I could up it somewhere.

I thought so... I gotta up it on megaupload. link: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=OH78FA3T (edit: if you want another hoster, contact me per PM)

oh... um my homework booklet is 21cm to 26,5cm. So if yours is bigger, just remove the white box on the left and drag the stuff to the left. But it looks great. :)

Could anyone verify latest system requirements please?

I'm pretty sure around 128MB is needed now to survive each install phase, so you'd end up with a Pentium-2 machine (266Mhz were they?) as minimum. That throws out any 486, Pentium and P-Pro people keep as relics :)
Minimum required available free disk space (and thus also minimum disk size) appears to be around 360MB (installer complains otherwise, same if no disks found)

I actually have a original Pentium 200mhz with 128mb of ram on it. Not much luck getting ReactOS on it though. There are, of course, other things to consider such as compatible disk/video and the actual desired permanence. (Although I once had XP on that Pentium 200 and basic operations ran at an acceptable speed)

Maybe it's a regression, ROS once worked on Pentium MMX 166MHz with 48 MB of RAM.

I wonder if that was with graphical user environment ("desktop") and a bit of session management back then. For low memory systems a pure commandline environment is still usefull for file management (while benefitting from hardware detection), but alas.

People can easily verify minimum requirements themselves for ReactOS revisions/versions using virtual machines. Disk size can be altered, memory size can be changed in multiples of 1MB or 4MB.

That was between releases 0.3.8 and 0.3.9, so yes.

This is derailing from discussing the CD cover itself by now, but there's not much to improve on already excellent work.
Latest trunk revisions (Cmake, ACPI) seem to be able to handle running in a 64MB environment again. However installation under such amount of memory is a total nightmare.
By the time devs decide to branch for next official release, it might be handy to determine real requirements so the CD cover can reflect this.

http://mikegraydesign.com/files/ReactOS ... _Cover.zip looks perfect, except for a typo ("opensource" vs. "open source").
The high-quality content on this forum, on which many users worked really hard, is almost always ignored by the developers!

Examples: new website design, themes, CD booklet, etc.

I don't mean to be rude but I am trying to raise awareness...
