WSL 2 is now ready for release. ENIW needs more developers before it becomes too late (MSFT open-sources Windows).
ReactOS needs more developers too, before it becomes too late (the WW3 happens and the coronavirus kills everyone too).

Re: writing a driver: why does Windows refuse to load my simple driver?

Because at first ReactOS was an open source alternative for Windows 95 (kernel near from the 2000's one) Certainly not. ReactOS was originally an alternative to Windows NT 4, then Windows 2000, then XP and Server 2003. Windows 9x/Me OS and kernels are of completely different design than those of Wi...

BTW: The Windows driver development kit and all it's uncompiled samples might be a blessing to those who use C, but for the rest of the world it's a horror.
That's because it is expected to write Windows drivers in C (or C++ with limitations) and not in any other language framework.

Re: Install ReactOS into a file which is filesystem image: Feature and its 'upstream codes'

Hi, that's a nice idea, but that would require amongst others to be able to boot from a virtual hard disk (which is what win32-loader/wubi uses for "installing" linux and booting from it afterwards). This is not implemented yet in ReactOS.

Yes, and here is a far-fetched relationship: ROS -> ROSe -> emblem of Socialist Party -> Soviet ROS -> Glory to Motherland!

Re: Installed ReactOS but...

On the desktop there is a shortcut to an applications manager. It needs internet to be able to download things. Programs that are normally known to work on ReactOS (they definitively work on Windows 2003 too) are listed there by thematics.

Re: ReactOS CHAOTIC NEUTRAL!

Does ReactOS by default include any closed source blobs in its iso? Our ISOs are fully built from the ground up starting from the ROS source repo. Since we don't include binary executable blobs in it, because the rule is that everything should be built from source (ok except media binary resources ...

When Windows is detected, "convert" should appear instead of "update".
When ReactOS is such in alpha state, this distinction is meaningless.

Re: Appreciation to Developers

Thanks! I did try it again and it appears the interface ('U' option when asked if you want to install ROS) is completely gone now. No loss as I couldn't get it to work even when it was there. Here is the current interface: the upgrade/repair screen is shown only if the ReactOS installer detects the...

Re: Bad publicity on the front page (from developer's point of view)

That's another example of "too much emphasized PR kills everything" that we don't particularly like. For example for the number of devs you had to read the small line "accumulated over the years", and you also need to know for how long the project exists (since 1999). Somebody who reads that quickly...
