It's not that simple, what happens when/if microsoft decides to come down on this site over something like this. are you going to foot the legal fees

I love your splash screen. Don't listen to all the "grumbling." Could you be so kind as to make one that says: "Xandros Desktop" in red? I'd really appreciate it. And again thanks for your contribution to KDE. And it others don't like it then DON'T USE IT! Jesus Christ.

Best Regards
Erich

No, it's not like ''don't use it'' will be sufficient. This is stolen material so using it without Vista licence is a crime.

Definition form dictionary what stealing means (http://webster.com/dictionary/stealing):

1 : to take the property of another wrongfully and especially as a habitual or regular practice [...]

The art in this theme is copyrighted by Microsoft. As I stated before, stealing from Microsoft is just as bad as any other theft.

This is not about Windows-like themes. Theme similiar to Windows could be nice, as nice is Windows (if it is ;). But using copyrighted material isn't nice at all.

You want talking about stealing?

I see Wallpapers, KDM, Splashes etc...

With copyrigh/trendmarked stuff under GPL,LGPL, Artistic etc...


Watch all wallpapers,kdm,splashes witz Windows Flagg, all wallpapers, kdm, splashes with Models, Cars etc.

Windows Flag has no copyright?

Pics from Heidi Klum etc has no copyright?

Go and nerve the other thieves...

The material you have used is copyrighted. Please read the following... http://www.copyright.gov/circs/circ1.html#wci

I don't personally feel that your work is "bad" per se, but good or bad you have violated copyright and posting such works is bad for you, KDE and the open source community in general.

You are correct that there are other works posted on this site that violate copyright but that does not make it OK for you to do it also.

Stop taking this so personally. If you want to use these copyrighted derivative works for your own personal use, that's your business. But please do not post it here. Do not make the rest of us suffer for your blatant disregard for copyright law.

Stealing from anyone is bad regardless of the source and it's blatantly obvious that you did.

GPL? WTF?

As you wrote: do something yourself. Stealing others work is easy.
Maybe you think that stealing from Microsoft isn't bad? Well, it is. Grown up.

Do we need that awful Windows VISTA background?

Please change it! I am sure you can make yourself a nicer background without stealing it to Microsoft!

Copyrighted or not I don't care!
I fact it's too much like Windows and there is no way to make advert for that rubbish product!

LINUX is so much better and in fact so much powerful!

I am sure you understand what I mean!

This is copyrighted material and you are completely aware of this. So you're a thief.

Posting this here with "GPL" is at least inappropriate.

If you want to use Vista material (which is nice indeed) then post instructions how to use this artwork from user's own copy of RedmondOS.

GPL isn't about anarchy or communism. Go away with this cr*p!

yeah, just don't use it.
Vista sucks, but it looks good. At least imo, but still Linux can look better (my desktop does).
