Your actual ROS-Notepad Icons is absolutly the same like that on
On March 2006 there was already something like that, there you used a
WinXP-notepad-icon, what I sayd at
The new icon, what you then choosed looks very like MS-Windows, but it
wasn't a icon from Windows until WinXP.
But now I have looked at Windows Vista (in a Virtual machine and on real
hardware in an Internetcafé which I know) and there I see, that the
ROS-notepad icon and the Windows-Vista Notepad icon are completely the same!
But, existing at first the Vista icon or at first the ROS-icon???
What me wonder is, that the icon was in ROS before the first betas of Vista
For all the people who have still not seen Vista: It is the biggest crap I
have ever seen.
I hope ROS 1.0 looks more like WinXP then like Vista.
- In Vista you can not run DOS-programs. But in C:\windows\system32 there
are files like edit.com and edlin.exe. But if you want to run it, there
comes a window: That there eixting a problem with this programs. If you want
to continue or abort. If I choose contine, then Vista hangs up.
- The german version of Windows have also the English-Filenames:
which you can easily see in the command-window (dos-box).
but the Explorer shows for the user translated names like
and there is a a possibility, if you are in such a directory to see in the
address-field of the explorer the real directory name. But at first you see
the wrong one.
- The games like minesweeper wants D3D hardware-driver, to run fast enough.
- the happy colors of XP don´t existing there. All is in black. Black here,
black there. The only other look and feel is the look of Win2000.
- The icons on the desktop are all very big, for me too big.
In the explorer on the other side the icons are per default small, that you
can´t see what a symbol it is ... 16x16 or so icons.
- If you have a 64bit Windows you can not see, which programs are 32bit and
whgich 64 bit.
In the name it stand there if you run it. There stands in the "about"-window
something like "I am a 64 bit window program".
But you can also develop a 32bit window program, which says, that it is
64bit. You can not see, if it is right or not.
With Linux - on the other side -, the command "file" do not show only
information about the Linux-format files, if you have a 32bit or 64bit
program, it shows also, if you have a 32bit or 64bit Windows *.exe file.
Additional it says if the *.exe-file is completly of native-code (so, that
WINE could run it for example), if it is completly .net-code (so that Mono
could run it on Linux for example) or if it include native and .net code
mixed like some developer do it with Visual C++.net / managed C++. There you
can mix native and .net code and neither WINE nor Mono can run this files.
The games of Vista are such files with mixed code.
Windows XP is _much_ better then Windows Vista!!
