Nope.
This video explains what's ReactOS Community Edition:

There are captions in Spanish.

As said before, these are just design mockups.
There is not yet a CE at all. This "screenshot" is from my working copy, where I experimented with icons which would fit better to the Lautus theme. Victor gave me the wallpaper, and I used the experimental branch, because it will be the default shell in the future. Later it got some polishing - That's it.
We have no tight plans HOW the result will look. David is working on another theme too. Also everyone can feel free to make suggestions or help byself.

As these are just "mockups", and are referred to on twitter as "the #ReactOS Community design proposal?" I'd bet they'd like to see what other people (e.g. YOU) would propose for the "New Look" of ReactOS Community Edition.
I reserve the right to ignore any portion of any post if I deem it not constructive or likely to cause the discussion to degenerate.

The candidate got 100 points ;)

I hate Faenza and it does not fit with Reactos grayish design.

Better take Slick icons from KDE:

Ooh, the Slick icons are nice.
I totally agree with that. Nobody likes Faenza, especially with it's notoriety of being the visage of boring, unmodified GTK desktops. I think by now everyone associates it with ugliness. In fact I hate Faenza so much I was willing to try my hand at making icons myself just to try to replace Faenza. It really needs to go.

Meh. Dunno.

I guess it's difficult debating tastes.

Can I suggest NuoveXT 2 icons? They look somewhat "Windows Vista/7"

I like how they look on LXDE. And it will be possible to have the same window borders of the second mockup in blue too? :?:

You are mashing two names together.
This is Tango, current ReactOS iconset: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tango_Desktop_Project
This is Faenza, its possible successor: http://tiheum.deviantart.com/art/Faenza-Icons-173323228

Could you now clarify when you meant Tango and when Faenza?

So far it seems that "everybody loves Faenza" is more true than "nobody likes Faenza". I personally don't like any art related to KDE and I like Faenza very much, but that's just my personal opinion.

EDIT: removed misleading information

I meant Faenza. I think Tango is also very ugly but not so much as Faenza is.

I vote for Slick because it is grayish-blue, the same colors as Reactos splash screen and logo.

My second vote is for the Gnome 2 default icon set (it is more like windows)

My thirs vote is possibly for DarkGlass.

nouve xt 2 are definitely not that bad and look like Vista's (especially the foleder icon) but still I vote for Slick. I think Slik is more like the Win Vista - Win7 icon set, yet is has the Reactos style. I think it is optimal.
