If I didn't know I wouldn't post.

You should research before you suggest what others should or shouldn't do. I have a number of judges backing my view up.

Nonetheless, you believe what you like. :)

MS

If MS wants to gripe, let Xerox Parc (among nameless others they've stolen from) gripe to them. I was getting involved in this project but begged off for other reasons that had nothing to do with this topic. I think everyone involved has the best intentions and dissasembly can lead to similar method...

I would say: 1 b 2 e 3 c 4 Grahpic card support. 5) yes - c (on it's way in a bit of time). 6) (missed) -Organize the effort a bit better, I've had a really hard time getting a firm answer on what I can do to help - mostly, I get mixed messages. I really dont know if I should work the cache manager ...

Cache

Hello Jaix, Dorian here - just wanted to let you guys know I'm working on the chache manager. I have a source that closely resembles the windows 98 chache that I'm using as background but I've ordered Windows Internals (my electronic copy is gone. :() and it should be arriving soon. I've listened to...

Speed

Thanks Jaix, :) So glad to be aboard.
I'm sure the speed boost from a cache manager being done will be significant. One thing, would you guys object if I use Masm32 assembler code for speed's sake? If so, I'll keep it all to C.

Thanks again and I look forward to being involved. :)

Speed..

Yep,
I spoke with Alex as well, he put me on to the cache manager rewrite branch.
I'll make sure I'm up to speed with the most recent changes, but my understanding is that the cache manager is in need of being done.

I'm researching the subject now to make sure it meets with compliance. :)

Memory Manager

Oh, great!
I'll download the branch you mentioned and see what I can do to help.
Could you tell me if the 0.2.9 release is the latest version of the source? f so, I'll work from there.
Thanks,
DorianC

Memory

Thanks glad you told me, :) I'll look at that. I've done a lot of application programming so perhaps I can instead turn my attention to making some of the applications (like notepad) work fully with an eye towards helping to improve the speed of the OS. I want to avoid duplicating anyone else's effo...

Memory and speed

I've been looking over the code and I think i can make a contribution to the memory management (in mm.c) and the general speed of ROS. I've done a lot of work of this sort before. (I used to do memory managers in the old DOS/Qemm/Qualitas days). I've been haunting the forums and irc to look for some...

Windows Security

I followed this discussion and I thought I'd chime in one a point. Microsoft security problems tend to stem (and here goes a major flame attack) from the fact that the company has never truly CREATED anything. Everything in their OS is stolen from other sources (having been a victim of this, I speak...

Newbie in the mix...

Hello ROS guys, :) I wanted to say I am anxious to start working on this OS. After building compilers, disassemblers and applications for the conventional world, it's great to be involved in something so fresh and exciting. :) I dug out an old computer and at this point, will be working on a ground ...

Raises hand....

I've been programming for 25+ years in the MS platform (including C# lately, masm, vc++), if there is anything I can do to help, please let me know. I have a deep respect for what you're doing here and think it's about time someone did! Anything I can do to help, please let me know. Regards, Dorian C.
