Next to Power Off I would add a "Session" button. Just another name for "Log off", but I think it makes more sense, as it will open a popup window with "Lock Screen", "Change Session" and "Log Off" (you could put the "User Accounts" icon from the control panel too). To power user it makes more sens...

Re: filesearch

Well that is really a pitty... The search mechanism in windows is one of the small things i would like Ros to correct. I really hope some of the devs picks this up and takes it into serious consideration.... But now is the right time to bring these questions onto the table right? The windows search...

It seems to me that what Crappish is sort of hinting at is that the UI can be changed extensively, but the GUI is where only minor changes should be made to keep inline with windows. I may be way out in left field on this one though so feel free to correct me :) Yes, the UI can be changed, just lik...

As you are so extensively talking about UI design and what should be done and what should not, I presumed that you would have the basic knowledge to separate UI and GUI. Basically UI is, in this case, everything you get from the computer, starting from post beeps to the way it handles errors and ult...

Oh but.. Surely you can't change the UI as it must be like Windows. You can only touch GUI!!1 better search method. Itunes way of finding music files for example. the search content appears as you type... Sadly, this can't be done with the way the files are currently handled. For this ROS would need...

Sigh. I'm getting tired of this... If you necessarily want to go to the flameout then go ahead, but don't think I'll follow you there. Why is it that you keep assuming weird things? I.e. Why shouldn't the standard Run -dialog remember the applications it has run before? Let me just tell you this. If...

Hmm. Interesting. Just noticed that the Start menu, which I posted, is not he one there was supposed to be. That's the first draft I made... Forgot to upload, it seems. (That's what you get when you do stuff right when tired) Oh, well, I'll upload it when I'm back at my apartment. (Few changes that ...

I agree that UI design is more important that just the GUI. but it seems to me that many people treat the end user as an afterthought or think everyone has the same level of competence as they do. a good GUI can reduce manual sizes by massive amounts. ;-) I like the design you show here, my only ch...

First of all not meaning to bash you but all of the stuff you are talking as UI design seems to be merely GUI. UI design includes lots of other things even though GUI is one of the most important parts of it. It is important to understand and to keep these two separated as mere GUI design would stil...

I actually didn't even mention the terms usability or UI design, or associated any of my points with them. I just mentioned a possible point of disagreement. I think the main difference between you and me is, you like to theorize and talk and categorize, whereas I just like to pick out ideas that w...

Well, I have to disagree on that " simplify too much " stuff. If you evaluate i.e. Windows XP with heuristic evaluation (Nielsen) it's definately not too simplifyed. In fact I think the UI designers at Microsoft have pay'd close attention to Nielsen's studies when designing the UI. I think you have ...

Importance of UI

If anyone even thinks of posting something about Linux and it's UI vs. Windows; Please, don't post, as this thread hardly concerns that, neverending, fight. Before we start, let me define ReactOS: "It is free operating system which aims to be " another Windows " and to correct the flaws that Micros...
