Those boxes i made where only an example to show that the boxes should be smal. Instead of the hughe boxes shown sofar in this thread. Also the icon is more of an indication of whats going on. It shouldn't have to be larger then 32*32. That's more then big enough. The colours also look a bit dull. I...

ReactOS is supposed to be an opensource windows. It is supposed to atract windows users.

In that case it has to behave, look and feel like windows too. Maybe with an adjustment here and there

Those boxes are way to big. They should be small, but noticeable. It doesn't help to have a font of 16pt when you have a large error message. A font of 8 or 10pt is better readable. Becease you can fit more text in the same area. Also the icon is more of an indication of whats going on. It shouldn't...

Mybe we shoud do it like this. If you break compatability with windows or reactOS you cannot use the name reactOS in your end product. This way everyone still can adapt as normal under GPL, but they beter be prepared to try and keep things compatible or they loose the right to call their OS a reactO...

I actually read that when I was reading the RP thread, and I find it in extremely bad taste to say something like that just when someone has lost all his work. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Maybe it is time to discuss what colours to use with way the gradients have to go (at what angle so we have consistent lightfall in the OS) I really like your icons so that should be the point of referense to lay down these points. My only point for consern is that some of these angled icons of fold...

Why ReactOS will be beter then Linux for desktop home use when it's done: 1. Easy to use (for people familiar with windows) 2. one on one compatability with win32 (binaries) 3. no commandline needed 4. aboundanty of drivers (win 2k xp and vista) 5. Direct dirext X with ReactX (no wrapper) 6. one dis...

That "mascot" is held in disdain by several developers. For that matter, most will deny it's a "mascot" of any sort. The sad fact is it's one of the less badly drawn ones from the old mascot thread. And if ANYONE attempts to resurrect/bump that thread by posting in it, I will ask an admin to kickba...
