You mix and substitute coLinux and DOS, which are completely different. In order to make DOS compatible with a high-level OS with security layers and all that stuff, you need quite a bit of virtualization. That is why I compared it with VMWare. Linux however has its own memory management that can b...

I'd say running FreeDOS in the same way as CoLinux, and extending out stuff like the filesystem from the ROS kernel, etc, would work a lot better than any emulator. Not realy sure about that becouse serious crash in coLinux will cause crash of whole system. (but of course perfomance is outstanding)...

I suppose that in future people will use ntfs only to reuse existing ntfs partition.
But if they created ntfs partition earlier then they allready have ntoskrnl.exe. 8)

Re: Why should I be limited to using MSVCRT?

BTW What's to stop patches to GCC/Minigw that would let it compile Borland dialect code? Alex 1) In fact latest Borland C++ command-line compiler is free. 2) Idea of my first message was: If some software needs Borland dll's then it should include them in installer becouse these dll's are not inclu...

Re: Anyone wrking on ...?

What for to reimplement Borland dll's?
You just can redistribute these dll's with application which needs them
without any copyright problem.
BTW correctly built applications which are created by Borland tools
have all required non-statdard libraries included in their installation packages.

ODBC сейчас тоже практически отсутствует (несмотрел ещё насколько оно в WINE реализовано, если оно там есть, то в общем скоро появится и в реактосе. Если нету - тогда придется делать с нуля). AFAIK программы работающие с базами (ADO/ODBC) в Wine работали. Если я правильно понимаю идею, то в Wine бы...
