ReactOS Whistler - 0.4.2 with an interesting theme...

Post by ThePuzzledBoy »

So I found out that ReactOS has allowed use of 3rd party Windows visual styles for sometime (I've tried it out once before maybe 7 years ago -- before the visual style thing -- and have only just now decided to check it out some more), so I went looking around DeviantArt for some themes I could use. Not much I could find there, except for this... ... -563690725

It seems to be a recreation (if not the genuine article) of the theme used in several prerelease versions of Windows XP (then codenamed "Whistler")
So I downloaded that and set it as my theme and decided to share some screenshots of what I consider (right now, at least) "the true ReactOS alpha eXPerience". (See what I did there?)

Anyways, this was all done within VirtualBox 5.0.26.

Here are the screenshots (don't know how to upload images to forum):

Hope you all like them!
