Re: Original Microsoft OpenSource Windows parts

Just to briefly clarify the ESE issue here: ESE is an alternative to SQLite, not Everything of voidtools.

Re: RAPPS forked out

Eventually, yes. As the compatibility level increases up to 100%, there may not be need fore a store for compatible apps. Yet, there is a long way there and having tested apps in a common place is a good use case for RAPPS. However, I can see your point and it would be useful program on any Windows....

Re: (Not) missing VB runtime

If it is tested to run mostly stable by a couple of testers and can be downloaded via Rapps, I believe it has a chance to be removed.

Re: Read this if you've found software useful to ReactOS

Well, I mentioned ReactOS to Grayfish, but he was not interested at the beginning. Stas'm convinced him to contribute. I have spoken to Jeremy Collake of Bitsum, but he was not interested in too. Emery Berger is an expert in memory management, which ReactOS falls short, and I have not asked him beca...

Re: Read this if you've found software useful to ReactOS

I have shared a few links in Mattermost. But it's hard to find them among other things. I'd like to add them here with some additions: https://github.com/jeremycollake/groupextend : We are not here yet, but this one is an optimization over CPU usage in processor groups. https://github.com/microsoft/...

Re: Hi, how about reactOS for servers?

There is a nice summary here mentioning the differences between Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 : https://confidentialfiles.wordpress.com/2010/09/07/a-historic-manuscript-differences-between-windows-xp-and-windows-server-2003/ The last part is about the server roles one can install on a Windows S...

Re: Viruses?

Well, my point was "people being able to read does not mean people do read". So, although they can, most of the people just do not read because they don't understand either the language or architecture and little bits like workarounds. So, just because they can read it does not make it inh...

Re: Viruses?

Although the omnipotent expertise of the OP, he made a point unknowingly. Is open source more secure because one can have a look at it and find it? Well, 20 years of unsolved bugs in BSD variations, the Heartbleed running wild for years... These have shown that no one reads open source code. This &q...

Re: ReactOS updater

initially I have written down these on the related Wiki page's Discussion part, yet I needed feedback for the naive suggestions and created the post. We don't use our wiki for communication and talks (don't expect any replies on it), we use forums and the chat. Reddit is okay too, but better use of...

Re: secure-delete on ReactOS

I was checking security related topics. Instead of submitting new posts, submitting replies to the existing ones sounded more reasonable. Ok, I'll keep a low profile then.

Re: secure-delete on ReactOS

Why not use SDelete from Sysinternals? It sounds better than adding complexity to the core.

Re: Security

I just want to clarify something. What is the policy on writing libraries on considering the CVEs? For example Server 2003 has 436 vulnerabilities and Windows XP has [url="https://www.cvedetails.com/vulnerability-list/vendor_id-26/product_id-739/Microsoft-Windows-Xp.html']741[/url]. On the deve...

Re: Memory Allocator

Although it is an old thread, I'd like to share a few thoughts about memory allocation, not directly a reply to the question of OP. As we do not use malloc() but Win32 APIs such as HeapAlloc, HeapReAlloc,HeapFree, I believe ReactOS do not need a hardened malloc implementation like Linux does. Theref...
