'Preloaded with QEMU' not opening on qemu on Linux

hi! i'm trying to load ReactOS.vmdk image from http://downloads.sourceforge.net/reactos/ReactOS-0.3.12-REL-qemu.zip (http://www.reactos.org/en/download.html) and there is no boot.sh file - the boot.bat is too focused on ms-windows (or ms-dos), which ms-windows i'm not using from around 5 years ago o...

Re: Wallpapers i made when...

well, now consider as exercise doing the complete reverse thing - wallpapers using the less colours possible, without any kind of gradients, opacities, refractions, effects, etc. - i'm very curious to see the results so! :-) - a tip for this: bet on colour harmonies and composition balance.

Re: Vista Design possibly

in my oppinion, betting in a fancy GUI would be the worse mistake possible - XP and Vista are nice examples of this - and as well, using MacOS-X, what is missing there were no fancy interfaces, but yes those missing simple ones, like from NeXT-Step or Rhapsody... The most simple and fast an inteface...

Re: Visual Basic

Try Python - the syntax is very close to Basic, and it has a good peformance, and has good extensibility as well
As well, Python should come defaultly from ReactOS, as does mostly from Linux distros, and even MacOS-X!

. wget

. gifsicle
. ffmpeg
etc.

Re: ReactOS on an Ext2/3 partition (instead of NTFS)

Well, my idea would be if ReactOS could be completelly independent of the filesystem format where is it installed, no matter if it were installed on a Fat16/32, Ntfs, Ext2/3, MacOS hfs+, nfs, xfs, etc. - ReactOS could be the very first ms-windows compatible operative system having this kind of flexi...

My company is looking to make a custom Distro of ReactOS, because we are impressed with the project and like the product. We will only sell CDROMS w/ mannuals, but offer free downloads of the OS from our webpage, very much like Redhat did with early versions of Linux and like what other companies e...

-finally i don't think you can remove the reactOS name so easyly (in terms of copyrights), and i don't think that devs will apreciate a fork with ReactOS name replaced by myOS. i can see what it is - LinEX is a very good project for popularizing Linux (and from their test on schools and public comp...

I think you are right! I'm a Portuguese speaker myself, and sometimes I find it difficult to write in English. i got your point - since we didn't born on a country where english is not the 1st language, some lack of grammar construction is lost or inducted to mistakes (even vocabulary) as well, i (...
