Re: I have an idea for a new Windows 7-like operating system

I also made a mock up of the login screen.

I'm also going to make the accounts similar to on Linux where the owner is separated from the administrator account, and every administrative action requires a password. I think ReactOS is doing the same thing.

So basically, like Windows development, the development of Ether OS or "Caelus" during the alpha stage will be broken up into milestones depending on which milestone is to be met: * Milestone 1: Fixing any bugs and compatibility with NT 5.x as well as adding any missing features from ReactOS as well...

Re: I have an idea for a new Windows 7-like operating system

Okay, I've done a mock-up now.This is NOT a screenshot, I made this in Inkscape and I've exported this as a PNG file to show you guys a concept of the "look and feel" of the desktop with the start menu open.

Re: I have an idea for a new Windows 7-like operating system

I also have plans for pre-installed applications that a user would want to have out-of-the-box without having to fill it up with bloatware. These applications include:

* Chromium web browser
* LibreOffice office suite
* VLC media player
* GIMP raster graphics editor

I have an idea for a new Windows 7-like operating system

I have this idea of creating a Windows-like and operating system. I want it to be compatible with Windows 10 applications as well as older applications, as well as to bring back the old traditional Microsoft Windows experience. The design and UI is inspired by Windows Longhorn and WIndows 7, with an...
