Re: Vorg

Sorry to slam your bubble with a sledgehammer, but ROS ain't Linux. You want that design idea? Stick with Linux, or code it in to a custom ROS build yourself. I am not the one living in a bubble. I work with multiple operating systems every day side by side. I have never said that Unix is a perfect...

STOP double/triple posting. I am not going to go to the effort of merging your posts. Next time I'll just start deleting them. You could have just asked instead of treating me as a hostile person. Next time I'll start combining my posts. The forum software gives me no way to do that with my previou...

Programs can interact where needed without dumping crap all over the drive or in other apps folders. A lot of so called interaction is crap pushed out by MS that is not only not needed but is a bad thing being the source of many infections. If you really need that interaction isn't it possible to i...

The problem with crap code by lazy programmers was address by a version of wine/dx9 linux that was out some time back. Not sure if it still is. Windows programs were each given their own registry and tree on install. They tried to dump somthing in \windows, the program thought it got away with it, ...

I hate when people get things wrong. SeLinux is NSA. Debian produces large amount of the Selinux profiles for applications. Redhat is only one of the teams working on Selinux. I'm perfectly well aware that SELinux is an NSA technology but Red Hat was the first to integrate it into a general purpose...

Re: Ged

The NT security model is actually an excellent and well designed system when used correctly.... The problem arises when users run as admin by default, which was one of the big mistakes Microsoft made. The same problem would be evident in linux if everyone ran as root. Due to this 'unrestricted acce...

Re: Vorg

You echo some of my gripes with Windows over the years and I understand what you mean to say here.

Design considerations

I would like to know what criteria were considered when ReactOS was designed. As I understand ReactOS is supposed to be compatible with the oldest to the newest versions of Windows eventually. This is very nice and will enable many users to switch from various Windows releases to ReactOS. Even thoug...
