Yes... Of Course!

So, How is 0.3.4 getting along? Is it still scheduled for Christmas? :lol:
Is the trunk build a prerequisite of the final version? (If so I might try it out)
:wink:

I concur... Linux may be millions of "flavours". But in reality there's no more than 5... maybe 10 Distros (if you stretch it). Those are defined as: Debian Gentoo Red-Hat Slackware SUSE I've deliberately left out Mandriva (Formerly Mandrake, formerly a Red-Hat Deriative...) But arguably they've bec...

What about my mother? She can barely install an .exe file, much less use an application manager in Linux. 9 times out of 10. What I find that the older generation tend to need not installing anything because the applications are already there. (With perhaps the exception of a Family Tree style prog...

Tinivole you have a lot of myths or misunderstanding. To be honest, how can we ever know what is true or false? Sorry, I'm just saying what I read. It appeared in the boot-up message of the linux distro "LinuXgamers" saying that it doesn't ship with the proprietry drivers because it is illegal acco...

I can see it becoming more of a moral thing, rather than a legal or illegal option... For example, take the Nvidia drivers for Linux. Apparently having the proprietry Nvidia drivers installed on linux is illegal (according to GPL). But that still doesn't stop people preferring to install the proprie...

Re: The Future of ReactOS?

The Future of ReactOS? What interested me is that now Vista ist available... and XP will be past... in 2-3 years, because there will be no any updates for it.. I hear... a) With Windows XP Service Pack 3 being released at the end of the year. b) After a year-ish of Vista being availiable. The major...

To be honest... If people weren't such curious internet surfers and we'd just stick to our "safe" sites, we'd probably never see a virus appear on our computer, on any operating system what-so-ever... Perhaps with the except to "yet-another-virus" rampaging hotmail, google or yahoo... if you don't g...

I think I'll wait for 0.4...

ReactOS is a cool operating system on paper... But within a virtual evironment, I shouldn't get your hopes up too much... Besides, despite what operating system you're running ReactOS from, you'll probably be able to do the exact same things without the buggy-ness and slowness of running ReactOS thr...

Forget the last comment... I think I've sussed it...

I would suggest we call it MOSC(Multi-Operating System Clone) or WineLineMine :lol: There is no OS that can run Windows, Unix and Mac (or BSD) on its system natively and there won't be for a very long time (and I seriously doubt if ever). To be honest, the systems and the binaries that run on each ...

It would be cool to also run Linux on ROS but not change the name And what do you mean here by 'changing the name' :?: Maybe he means to be able to boot Linux under the same kernel as ROS... I've meantioned it before, but the general reply is that ROS is going to be a Windows clone, not a Windows-b...

May I ask what exactly is the point of this discussion? It seems to have taken quite a divergence. As with all questions, the future isn't a simple yes/no answer. I asked if ReactOS could be for Windows as what Linux is doing for Unix. And instead of an abundance of answers. One answer came forth, ...

If your using real hardware, I seriously doubt it'll work. ReactOS is still in its alpha stages and supports little hardware. Post installation you should be able to install all the drivers you want, but this can only be acheived in a virtualised environment and the need would be pointless. Try inst...

MS success is not sealed for 10 years. There is a chance in the business market to MS to be reduce back to less than 10 percent market share in 12 months if everything goes the right way.

here, here... I'm on the side of avast. It too is free and OS portable. It's database is solid, and people are always sending in to them what they think are new viruses.
