I think it should be win7 start menu but have an option to use classic start menu and also allow multiple themes. win2k is outdated and wouldn't appeal to people looking to switch.

My two cents: Win7's start menu is one of the reasons I went back to XP. The other is how they messed up Windows Explorer. (No, Classic Shell doesn't really fix either.) When the world is already full of Win7-8-10 type menus, another just like 'em isn't special. But for those who prefer XP's way of doing things... we have fewer and fewer options, and an XP clone is attractive, while a Win7 clone is not.

Not important at this stage - the devs are not really interested so much in the idea of an alternative look and feel for ReactOS, getting it to function at all in order to equate some of the functionality found in W2003 is the aim at the moment.

Good by me. I imagine if someone really wants it, they can write an alternative shell/theme thingee, sort of ClassicShell in reverse.
