The only way 85% of your traffic would be IE is if you used some MS specific code that's not supported in other browsers. It probably depends on where you live. In the Czech Republic (that's where I work) Firefox has 12% of traffic, 85% is for IE and the resting 3% are Conqueror, Safari, NN, pocket...

I have nothing against the choice. I just don't want people to forget about MS - whatever is said, it defines the rules today, and it looks like it will do so tomorrow, too... But I definitely do not agree with the statement about the browsers. IE nor Mozilla do not support W3C HTML4 standard at 10...

Being a FREE alternative to Windows, Reactos is by DEFAULT a compeditor and once we meet and beat Windows, MS will see ReactOS as a serious threat. :lol: Really nice. I don't want to sound pessimistic, but beating Windows seems to be a too far plan for now. UNIX was there before Windows, it definit...

Also to add to this topic, instead of trying to "Be Like Mike (ro-shaft)" we should give more choice, options, power, flexability and do our own thing and allow others to do theirs. The hell with being exactly like MS. Who needs that?! With all of these open source projects and ReactOS planning on u...

IE is free to use, so I don't think they will care once we ask (of course as long as they do not consider ROS as a competitor :roll: ). Otherwise I will have to work with NN or something different what can simulate IE core. Being a FREE alternative to Windows, Reactos is by DEFAULT a compeditor and...

Otherwise, there should definitely be MSIE included You're kidding, right? I don't think there's going to be much chance that Microsoft will allow us to redistribute Internet Explorer with ReactOS (even if we would want that, which I doubt...) Unless I am misunderstanding him, Maxthon/MyIE2 is an a...

Well, people, to my mind you are talking about quite useless things. I think the basic program set should concentrate on SPEED and USABILITY. Thats why adding WinAmp (10secs to open) and IrfanView (very limited) is a total bullshit. I'd agree to use MP Classic and Brennig's instead. Otherwise, ther...

Here's my list of what I would like to see in a Preload. Some of it is not Open Source, but it is all freeware and could serve as a model for what we need to recreate. My main criteria for choosing software is that is be available for multiple platforms. Windows, Linux and MacOS possibly. Reasons f...

Yeah, it'll really depend on how WindowBlinds interfaces with Microsoft Windows and the exploits it uses in order to do what it does. On the same note (perhaps a bit off-topic), we're working on an open-source OS, so why not implement at least as good as WindowBlinds? Hey, maybe even better! I agre...

Windows Blinds?

Will Windows Blinds work with ReactOS to make it look more like XP? Or are ReactOS and Windows 98 / 2000 so incredibly different in structure that theres no way this would work?

Possibility for Emulation?

Just a question. Low priority i'm sure. I've seen alot of free (possibly even open source) emulation for Commodore 64 / 128 as well as Amiga DOS and Amiga GUI. I've also seen emulators for the *old ancient* Apple stuff. For us nostalgic freaks of nature out there, I think it would be cool if these c...

Why no NTFS priority ?

Upon looking at the wiki you posted here and adding my entires into it, I noticed an Ext2 for Windows Utiliy that looks QUITE nice. I also noticed it was not open source. *IF* the author could be convinced to open source it, it would allow ReactOS a native File System beyond Fat32 that it could dire...
