I raised the same point. We'll just have to see whether I can push the issue or not.

I think the best choices are ReactX (long) and ReaX (short) (...or what about RecX ?).

Again, an official logo contest page would be great. :roll:

In my opinion, RX would be a good abbreviation for ReactX.
DirectX is already abbreviated as DX, so RX would fit quite good as an abbreviation.

As Hunkadoodledoo already said, ReactX does not contain an "O", so it could become difficult to find out that ROX is the abbreviation for ReactX.

Best regards,

Colin Finck

I second the RX. You could pair with a catch phrase like RX: Your prescription for Windows :D

Of course MS lawyers might object to that so you could also try: RX: Your prescription for Games

RX is good (here in italy is the short for X-Ray), then.

Let's call for artists !!!

EDIT: Just searched for "RX", and this could be a good background for ReactX... (imagine the X in the center) :shock:

I also prefer RX.
Mainly because there is no "O" in ReactX.

I saw this and I HAVE to reply...
I agree that it should be called ReactX, but I think we should be able to abbreviate it to RX or ROX, because ROX rocks! :lol:

As said before "ROX" is a popular open-source desktop-enviroment, so "RX" would be much better.

and what about this http://haxor.czweb.org/reactx.png ? I'm not a designer it's just an idea how the "X" and icon could look like. maybe more old, rusty, flaked off...

I think we need first of all a competition for the name. The name with a description and then a vote for it.
Though ReactX seems to be the favorite(though not very creative ^^).

But before having a name, we shouldn't focus on logo-competition.

A name was already chosen by GreatLord. ReactX is the official name of the ReactOS DirectX implementation.
