classic twist?

Post by geertvdijk » Mon May 01, 2006 11:14 am

Maybe this would be something more possible at the moment, and just a little different of the standard Classic look... I've tried to adjust it a little bit, so it looks a bit fresher... Any thoughts?

I like it. It may need some finetuning (i think the cross and queston-mark should remain black, as well the text in the buttons/tabs), but the general idea is very cool. I think it should be at least an available option.

Guess we now need anybody to implement it..

I think the gradient is too severe, but it's actually really nice looking.

its indeed a first attempt, I think some parts should be more subtle, and indeed, when applied, button labels should go over the gradients... However, this is a modified screenshot, so this was a bit easier... I'll look into it...

The buttons are not perfect but the rest looks great.

Actually, I think it has real potential.

Perhaps set everything so they are "metallic", and the light is appearing from the top-right, like with the buttons that makes them 3D, but just make it even more so, with the shading across the buttons.

Beat that microsoft!

I really don't like the buttons on it. They do not fit.

indeed they dont, the gradients were a little much overdone, so I'm now working at it to make it look like one style... :D

I think the styled buttons look a little funky with the plain background. Try to find some way of making the buttons not stand out so much from the window background.

BTW, I think this has great potential! :)

I'm sorry, but I don't like any of it. I prefer the simple buttons and widgets, and I don't think any of those effects belong in a classic theme.

I don't think this should be the default theme, I think that the traditional classic look should be standard. I think that the proposed theme should be an option, in addition to the current ReactOS look. This theme looks really nice, but probably wouldn't be appreciated by users of slower computers.

I do like this theme, but it definitely shouldn't be default.

The problems is that reactos does not have support for Theming yet, but maybe we could implement some hackish registry entry or something to disable the effects. However I think this theme does perfectly fit to the tango icons we currently use and 84% liked it so far and I will try to implement it if no one else did before as soon as my work on the cache manager is finished.
Where do you want ReactOS to go today ?
