Here is an idea about a new Welcome Wizard for ReactOS.

The features listed below are only a few ideas, what this wizard could be capable of.

When a user logs in for the first time, a little window appears and asks him, how he would describe his ReactOS knowledge. Possible answers could be:

  • Beginner
  • Advanced
  • Professional
  • Freak

Then this wizard changes some registry settings, depending on which knowledge the user has got. For example:

  • Show hidden files or not
  • Show filename extensions or not
  • Show the registry and NTOBJ or not
  • and much more things like that

With such a wizard it would be possible to give every user the UI he needs. The Beginner doesn't have to mess with filename extensions and the Freak doesn't need to turn on all the features he needs.

These will only have to be the default settings. Later in the operating system's life, the options must remain accessible if desired, for example during troubleshooting, a technician might need to see the registry.
