Re: I backported the ps2 emulator PCSX2 to give back XP compatibility, maybe also ReactOS?

If your program works on Windows XP or Windows Server 2003, then there are nothing more to "make it work" on ReactOS: it should work there too. If not, this means that it's a bug/missing functionality in ReactOS that needs to be corrected in ReactOS only.

Re: ntoskrnl extender project

In case you didn't notice, the file wrk2003.c contains copy-pasted code from the WRK, and this is illegal.

Re: reactos 4.15 amd64 won't boot on qemu

The x64 builds of ReactOS available in the getbuilds page are not for everyone usage and won't work. These are just builds to control that the existing code compiles in x64 mode too. The actual x64 development is done in a separate branch, for which no builds are publicly available. Also, these are ...

Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

Ask yourself the following question: If your hypothesis was correct, then how is it possible that our kernel is still much incomplete and buggy, after all those years?

All ReactOS releases so far (available on sourceforge) are debug builds.

Re: Viruses?

When the ISO is analysed by these scanners, usually you will get the list of the files (in the ISO) that the scanners think they contain a virus.
So you can then look at their source code in our repo, to see whether they contain weird-looking code.

Re: ReactOS in the wild

It seems they are using ReactOS' command line interpreter (cmd.exe), which is itself based on the one from FreeDOS (hence "Tim Norman" appearing in the copyright license). Do you say this based only on the Tim Norman reference, or is there something else you found? All I can see from FLIR themselve...

just follow the ones it calls.
