It looks pretty good! I personally see the only exception in the scrollbars. All is nice and sharp, but scrollbars (especially the arrows) are kinda blurry.

Indeed, very nice.

Awesome! It would possible to change the window border color? Or have a blue version of it? I'm accustomed to that color since w98 :lol:

I see there's been a new commit improving Lautus in r61886. What's new? :-)

Some corrected look and feel. Some frame and button colors and sizes as far as i can see.

I redesigned some of the elements which I think looked bad. Buttons, scrollbars, Explorer-typical elements, window status bar and also some checkboxes/radiobuttons as well to match the improved design. Also taskbar went through some improvements as well.

This is just my opinion, but I like to be able to tell if something is a button or not. I made my own version of the start button: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BweeR0 ... sp=sharing

IMO, the title bar buttons should be separated similarly. BTW, the image uploaded is vector.

btw, Lautus is using a Segoe font, however Reactos doesn provide it and the Style ends loading a really old ugly font.
Maybe you can define a font which is already provided?
Thanks!

According to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Segoe, they are not open source or free.
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - ISO remaster.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

DejaVu will fit well as a substitution font.
-uses Ubuntu+GNOME 3 GNU/Linux
-likes Free (as in freedom) and Open Source Detergents
-favors open source of Windows 10 under GPL2

Lautus uses Ubuntu (Normal and Extra Large mode) and Segoe UI (Large mode) font families (and Tahoma and Arial ^^). I added Open Sans as Segoe UI font clone and Ubuntu and it works fine. I found a nice bug anyway. Themeing does not set bold where needed. It just ignores it...

Set by default.

Manually added bold on Caption Bar.
