Re: 1:1 MSPaint clone - not ? but !

There's a refresh bug under WinXP. When a bitmap is initially loaded, the canvas remains white until the window receives a mouse click event. It also doesn't resize the canvas to the size of the bitmap. Hrm... I see that resize doesn't work anyway, so that must be a know bug. :wink: There's no icon ...

Hopefully all software makers have automated regression testing available. I doubt that any of the larger companies would initially be interested in working with ReactOS (since it would represent a very, very small percentage of their market vs . the cost of testing.

I thought that creating an alternate implementation of Windows was about granting users freedom , not restricting them. Projects like Freedows went down in flames because they got the idea that they could make a "better" version of Windows. People got mired in debating what should be changed, instea...

There seems to be some confusion as to what Wine is, and how it relates to the ReactOS. First of all, the Wine acronym is correct: it is not an emulator. If you want an example of an emulator, have a look at Bochs or QEmu. You can think of an emulator as a "simulator", since it's using software to s...
