ReactOS Now this is what I like to see. Smaller, alternative operating systems have been dying by the dozens these past 6 years or so, so in order for the remainder to survive, they need to work together. ReactOS and Haiku have been doing that for a while now, and the latest fruits of this collaboration is a much-improved USB stack for ReactOS.

It would be nice if windows 7's classic theme supported 2d acceleration like windows xp. While aero is nice to look at for a little while, it's clunky and big compared to the classic theme which is elegant and doesn't waste of lot of monitor real-estate in comparison.


If it had square borders and wasn't quite as "big", it would be perfect. I agree.

Yes, I know the classic themes performance issues are due to the changes windows 7's graphics stack. Just saying that the classic theme on windows 7 is less than ideal due to the lack of 2d acceleration.


Blame GPU makers, they didn't do any 2D GPU accelerating development, all the money was in Games,

My Mate uses a Matrox Triple Head job with Windows XP and it is soo damn good when using it with AutoCAD.
