Re: Windows Linux includes full Linux OS w/ext4 file system

Isn't 'thunking' usually between apis of different bit depth? i.e. between 16-bit & 32-bit, or 32-bit & 64-bit Windows APIs?

Here's an interesting factoid you might like to know: the board Digital Loggers is now selling as the "Atomic Pi" is was originally developed by Mayfield Robotics for use in their "Kuri" household robot.

Re: Windows Linux includes full Linux OS w/ext4 file system

If Microsoft publicly releases it's WSL 2 Linux as open source, ReactOS can use the same Linux as Windows but not require a license. According to the video linked in the OP Microsoft will be making changes to the Linux kernel, and distributing it via Windows Update, therefore (since Linux is under ...

Re: WordPress Version 5.0 For Website Development

@youngg50 Sorry to say, but your message does seem very bot-like. Anyway, assuming you're a real person, and you're still using WordPress version 3.5 as indicated by your first message, PLEASE update to the latest version. Yes the interface has changed a bit since version 3.5, but it's not that hard...

Re: Building new systems with ReactOS?

32 core threadripper has serious memory bottleneck issues - too many cores for the memory controllers to handle, might be worthwhile waiting for a bit for the next gen. The 'memory bottleneck' you mention is actually much less severe than it would appear to be. In fact, the issue that seems to have...

Re: Should I make a Pinball game for ReactOS?

On Microsoft removing Pinball, a couple of things stand out on that. I don't see why they felt the need to attempt to rewrite it. It was already 32-bit and would run as-is under x64. The other thing is that it sounds like it had sloppy code to begin with. If I were them, I'd have sent the rewrite b...

Re: Vista+ functions non visible to apps that needs them

IIRC there was mention at some point of possibly detecting that an exe file was built for NT6+ and automatically adding the appropriate compatibility flag(s), but even if this gets implemented you should still be able to go into the compatibility tab of the file's properties window to customize it, ...

Re: Trying to install ReactOS in Virtual Box

No, this is not 'normal'. Can you please provide more detailed information about your setup?
  • What is your host OS?
  • What version of VirtualBox are you using?
  • What settings did you choose when creating this virtual machine?

Re: BSOD when installing Guest Additions

That ISO link is old now, you'll have to go to the testbuilds page and download the new test build of the guest additions iso if you want to do this.
Note, these are test builds, and may include other changes and/or bugs.

Re: Language C

Back to the original question, ...

@SOOAHPAZ: If English is not your primary language, you can write your posts in both languages, so that if people have difficulty understanding your English, they can run the other language section through a translator to help them understand.

Re: How do I change the aspect ratio?

You may also need to change which graphics card VirtualBox is emulating (while the VM is off).
