Re: reactos priority? or mess?

For the last time: ReactOS is not declared to be stable by our developers! That's called alpha... Windows, Linux, MacOS and BSD are declared to be stable by their developers! You want to ride a rocking horse which is still up a workbench of a woodworker?... We go round in circles... and this discuss...

Re: reactos priority? or mess?

Basically, expect them to be in beta sometime around 2025. Maybe 2023 if they get paid enough to hire more people. But why to make windows XP or windows 200x server clone? Why did not pay money on wine HQ or other linux apps? Why do you waste your time here? If you don't like ReactOS, go ahead and ...

Re: reactos priority? or mess?

LMH1, in its current state ReactOS targets Windows XP 32bit (NT kernel version 5.1) respectively Windows Server 2003 (Nt kernel 5.2). Do you truly expect the security standards of Win 10 (internally marked as NT kernel 6.4) which was approximately published 14 years later? ... ( https://en.wikipedia...

Re: reactos priority? or mess?

Haiku is inspired by BeOS with "[...] about 1.5 million lines of code. Actually an incredibly small codebase, compared to, say, the 30+ million lines of code in Windows NT"( https://birdhouse.org/beos/bible/bos/ch_future1.html ; 1999). The coding of ReactOS seems to be a bit more challengi...

Re: reactos priority? or mess?

LMH1, I understand your impatience. But with just two paid developers we should lower our expectations. Compared to Windows, Linux and BSD it is a leisure project. A wonderful and quit succesful one considering the complexity of developing a binary-compatible Open-Source "Windows". As a re...

Re: Hi im new here

ReactOS is alpha (not even beta) and thus very incomplete & unfinished - Read also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_ ... ycle#Alpha

Re: Überwachung ?

Ich nehme an, dass er ganz allgemein über Hintertüren in Software - wie eben auch ReactOS - besorgt ist. Siehe aktuell zum Beispiel " Backdoors in Video-Encodern auf Huawei-Chips entdeckt - Ursprung unbekannt " bei Heise Online. Somit ist die Frage generell schon berechtigt, auch wenn sie ...

Re: REACTOS auf Lenovo G50-45

Dann entschuldige ich mich ausdrücklich bei Dir, da Du Dir des Alpha-Stadiums bewusst gewesen bist. Mein Eindruck ist, dass es etliche Seitenbesucher im Gegensatz zu Dir leider nicht sind. Hoffen wir, dass es mittelfristig häufiger vergleichbare Berichte Victor Perevertkin hired full-time to work on...

Re: REACTOS auf Lenovo G50-45

Gerade eine Installation auf einem "Produktiv-System" wird von unseren Entwicklern explizit noch nicht empfohlen, da es sich bei ReactOS weiterhin nur um ein Betriebssystem im alpha-Stadium handelt. Siehe Download-Seite unter "How to choose?" im rot markierten Satz: "If you ...

Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

Like the not really opensource-project called MS Shared Source Initiative.

Sorry for any misunderstandings. I'm not a native speaker.

Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

If one cannot create a bicycle, one shouldn't try to create a Boeing... Let's assume that our developers are probably no masochists and that they know best where to start. Windows Vista is based on Server 2003, and 7 is based on Vista. But once you get to Windows 8, Microsoft had to really slim down...

Nichts. Er behauptet und unterstellt sie nur. Ohne jegliche seriöse Belege. Dass so ein Blog trotzdem ein Stück weit verfängt, sehen wir ja in der besorgten Nachfrage.

Re: Überwachung ?

Auch wenn es klüger ist, zum Beispiel im KRITIS-Spektrum statt auf Closed Souce lieber auf quelloffene Alternativen zu setzen, gilt zumindest für mich: Mein Vertrauen in "Windows, Linux oder Android" fällt im Vergleich zur "Expertise" von "Michael Mannheimer" weit höher...

Re: Two decades later...what's the point?

And let's not forget the ReactOS FAQ with answers to frequently asked questions such as

- Why ReactOS? Why clone Microsoft Windows™?
- Why don't you help develop Wine/Linux instead?
- Why is ReactOS development so slow?

Again: Please read our ReactOS FAQ.
