Please let me state my opinion about the voting process. I think the  
voting process should be open to developers and users of reactos.  
Although I do not develop fully on reactos, or for reactos, I am  
planning on developing open-sourced components for reactos that would  
be available through my website and possibly submitted as a package  
for ReactOS. I believe that developers and end users should be  
allowed to vote because they provide the most feedback on not only  
the technical but the aesthetics of ReactOS. I think putting voting  
in the forum and only allowing developers anonymous voting is stupid.  
I think logging each members votes should be logged as well as  
session variables and ipaddresses. This will allow the voting to stay  
true. Just a few thoughts...
