Re: [CALL FOR ACTION] ReactOS Trading Plan

I looked everything up for curiosity: Etoro has an OVERWHELMING rating on trustpilot with 1 star.
Certainly a site to be careful about and from what i did read and in my estimation its unlikely to see currency coming from it...

Bugs as development target?

Hello, In the developing introduction https://reactos.org/developing#subsystems you write: Implementing the Win32 API provides a particular challenge to anyone hoping to get involved in this area, in that it has to mimic Windows versions of the Win32 API completely. This means not only implementing ...

I did read on the site: https://reactos.org/developing However there is one little piece missing: Where to start. As example for reacto...

Re: We urgently need a beta

Guess best would be to make something that helps to find from where those corruptions are originate and fix it.
A layer that logs filesystem access and can match corrupted sectors to where the corruption came from

What they do is enabling the HAP mode from U.S. government's High Assurance Platform (HAP) they say that di...

Re: We urgently need a beta

The question is of course if thats all, or if your hd manufacturer also has his own malware The solution is easy. You would also install the ReactOS as your HDD's OS. Turtles all the way down. https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/6059do/how_to_run_linux_on_your_hard_disk_firmware/ Here the quote...

Re: We urgently need a beta

There is the little problem that windows is not the deepest malware but intel does ship with an extra subsystem that can take control over the computer means that unless ros does actively disable this the computer would itself still be malware. The question is of course if thats all, or if your hd m...

Re: Read only os pro and cons

yes this combined with a tool which helps the user to create installations and maintain them from this installation.

Note the original idea was a bit different but a normal installation of a live cd and some tools could get a similar effect

Re: Read only os pro and cons

Live cd will not work with my netbook or any other and there are cases when live cds not work. Plus if a file is corrupted it is easier to install the os on the hd than to copy the file from a cd. Also my other suggestion is a repair and install tool that runs out of the live cd and installs a read ...

Re: Read only os pro and cons

Haos might be right that it is out of scope. So i thought about it a while and in the end i think a normal live cd like ros installed protected on hd can do something very similar. So i suggest to install a vanilla version of ros which is readonly on the harddisk. This will be the rescue and maintai...

Re: Installation monitor and uninstaller

a third party software might be a temporary solution if this fits with the ros policy at all. Third party software has usually a bulk of problems when you try to bundle it. Also i suggested two applications here: one is a proffessional installer and uninstaller the other is a security monitor which ...

Re: Installation monitor and uninstaller

dear dosguy, i did not say everything should be done right now. I opened a discussion about a feature i would like to see one day. However for the installer part i think the wondows installer is crappy and a main reason why windows get slow after one year use. Indeed i think the stable version of ro...

Installation monitor and uninstaller

Both are not new i know but i think they should be inside the core and not seperated programs for the obvious reason that it need a very deep access to the system and third party software might mess the system up when going so deep. So the installer and uninstaller together with a read only os would...
