rrobin Look at Lightweight CPP it does overloading that C does not support. Overloading was named as an example; it may very well be implemented somewhere, but it's not a general procedure. Stating that it's technical possible doesn't mean that it's an option :? I agree that there are some powerful...

Translation between computerlanguages isn't compareble to translating German into Chinese. Certain principles can't be simply translated; how do you translate overloading to a language wich doesn't support it? Syntactical correct translated doesn't guarantee anything. You'll require a human interpre...

Oh, and Mircosoft will attack ReactOS one day anyway. ReactOs isn't much of a threat yet. But once it gets really usable Microsoft will do something. "Once it gets really usable"? Version 3.0 might be ready to be distributed preinstalled!! :D News on this topic is scarce.. What are the implications...

I would agree that conversion to a level where all code will compile and be bug free and optimised would be near if not impossable but some programs do convert for the purpose of time saving, convert then fix rather than re-writing. http://c2pas.sourceforge.net/ is a c -> delphi convertor http://ww...

What I'm missing is a small text, explaining "how to file a bug, and making sure that you don't file an exisiting one." Is this what you're looking for? Exactly, thanks for the pointer! Been reading the Wiki on how to submit bugs and been scavenging some userblogs. The ROS-core is more mature than ...

You need knowledge of C. This is what ReactOS is written in, with the exception of explorer, which is C++. C++ will be good if you intend to work on the explorer, but the code is not for beginners. No other lanuages are accepted. Predictable, as assembler is too complex to write larger programs, an...

I just mean that the general layout uses slightly different images and stuff... I'm sure a proper Theme can fix all that once windows themes are supported. The default layout of ReactOS doesn't look quite as crisp as Win98SE. Once you're used to them, they become a must have. Pretty much every Linu...

There is a link to Bugzilla (where you submit bugs), though its not clearly marked if you dont know what it is. Im pretty sure OpenOffice v1.x installs and runs, but there are known problems with installing OpenOffice v2.x. What I'm missing is a small text, explaining "how to file a bug, and making...

It prolly has to do with your brand of harddrive or if its Serial ATA(N alike). The cd thing is weird. Do you happen to use a SCSI cd drive? I dont think SCSI support is a high priority; i believe it VERY WELL should be. But so far the os looks good. Im thinking of installing VC Enterprise 03 and m...

I was trying that too, but the result is that I downloaded VMWare player :-) and problems are gone :-)
Isn't the VMPlayer harddisk limited in size?

Inaccessible boot drive

Tried ROS using the VMPlayer, loved it 8) Tried to install on a dedicated machine, failed. Boots from CD, loads a few drivers, then halts the system with the message "INACCESSIBLE BOOT DRIVE". Plus some gibberish like this; ntoskrnl.exe: 1cdb> ntoskrnl.exe: 1cf2> ntoskrnl.exe: 6dfdb> ntoskrnl.exe: 6...
