Re: Thorium (ROS distribution) on kickstarter

i think a better idea is to try and get reactos running as a server core os "running a web server and stuff is already close to what reactos is capable of today " http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd184075.aspx this way you could run websites like reactos.org on it etc and would lay the fra...

Re: ReactOS Future cross-compatibility

People have short memories. Windows Vista had horrible publicity and never overtook Windows XP, but Microsoft didn't go bankrupt and Windows survived. In the worst case scenario that no one buys Windows 8, Windows 7 will continue to be the dominant operating system until Microsoft fixes their mista...

Re: do you think windows 8 will be what

Here's a thought: sell the ReactOS Explorer as a replacement shell for Windows 8. Even in its current state people will be beating down your doors to get it for their new computers. ;) well currently ive found a usefull app on that front called http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/ which im suprised...

Re: oracle vs google could be end to reactos

A defeat for Google would screw US based users and maybe US based contributors. It would have almost no relevance for foreign based contributors and users due to differing law, and the ruling by the European Court of Justice pretty much torpedoes any law that attempts to impose the notion of API co...

Re: oracle vs google could be end to reactos

If this goes badly, it will affect a *LOT* of software projects both open and closed source. Keep in mind Microsoft largely got to where it is by copying APIs from things like CP/M, Classic MacOS, and Java. So, in other words, ReactOS doesn't really need to worry about it too much as there WILL be ...

Re: ReactOS Fundraising 2012

I don't see the point of allowing donations to not be listed at all. Is someone supposed to figure out who you are based on the date or amount of your donation? I agree with fulea.stefan that all donations should be listed in the interest of public perception. If we publish some donations and not o...

Re: ReactOS for DirectX 11, is this possible?

I've always wondered how they'd want to get DX11, as DX11 seems tied to Vista/Win7 and thus to a drivermodel (WDDM?) beyond what XP/2003 use and what ReactOS aims for. Perhaps Wine's conversion from DirectX to OpenGL will do the trick. Because the target OS is a moving target. Used to be nt4, then ...

Re: ReactOS for DirectX 11, is this possible?

reactos will probably support directx11 someday but for now getting directx9 running is hard enough for them (theres loads more important stuff to fix besides directx anything as far as reactos goes)i mean being able to use more graphics card drivers without causing bsods and graphical desktop bugs ...
