Re: EPIC WIN!

PLZ PLZ pretty PLZ somebody put this on youtube now!!! Indeed EPIC WIN! I honestly don't see what's so "epic" about this one... It's running inside a VM. ReactOS can run inside a VM for quite some time already and since it's QEMU we are talking about it doesn't even matter which hardware it runs on...

Re: We need an official C compiler and assembler for ReactOS

All mainstream OSes has basic development environments so as not to require user install 3rd party program to develop software at least in the simplest circumstances. MS-DOS has QuickBASIC and MASM, Windows up to XP has MASM for this purpose. Since ReactOS is implemented in C and C++, we need the i...

ReactOS can now run the Java IDE, but not Java programs.
Please think again. Both Netbeans and IntelliJ IDEA are written in Java. ;)

Re: Blog: PITA bugs part 4

I don't understand why people doesn't check those. Even non-programmers should know that at least malloc should always be checked. I'm not a real programmer (only a hobbyist) and I know that. I think more often than not the opinion about such calls is "they normally work so I don't need to check th...

Re: Blog: PITA bugs part 4

I definitely agree with checking return codes. With that I fixed a few bugs in our own OS (mostly its userland; it's a microkernel architecture after all :P ) as well during the last few months. :D

Re: Blog: On installers

GPT's relationship with UEFI is a bit more tenuous since it is possible to perform a UEFI boot from MBR partitions, though Windows does not support this (or booting from 32bit UEFI for that matter, but that's a separate point). Did I understand it right here that you said that Windows is not capabl...

Re: Some thoughts

Windows 32bit can run 16bit Windows programs and 32bit Windows programs. Windows 64bit can run 32bit Windows programs and 64bit Windows programs. WINE tops it. The 64bit WINE version can run 16bit, 32bit and 64bit Windows programs. ReactOS on the other hand, seems not to want 16bit Windows programs...

Re: Thorium (ROS distribution) on kickstarter

b) ReactOS is a desktop OS. But what do I read? - MOBILE? EMBEDDED? WHAT?! Yes, perchance "one day". So far, you have difficulties with 7zip in a virtual machine. NOBODY knows what THIS shall be all about! Simply say, " hey, we want to make a desktop OS like Windows ". As primitive as that - that t...

Re: Edit clon

What edit d:test.txt and edit d:\test.txt should be doing? Is that a path? How does it behave in the original one? I might try to fix the bug (although you'll probably have to wait until January, as I'm in finals season in college until then). d:test.txt refers to the file test.txt on the current d...

Re: ROS testing on real hardware

And 5) Together with Theflash and some others, I managed to confirm that it is, without any doubt, the driver. (not the kernel, etc.) I removed my card, rebooted ROS, renamed my cmipci.sys, restarted, and everything worked well, this time. I returned it to its original name, restarted, and it borke...

Re: My experience with ntvdm

It would be better if you'd install this branch completely to be sure that nothing is missed like adjustments in libraries like kernel32.dll etc.

Just in case: you did try the ntvdm branch and *not* trunk? Also revision 61103 is around 6 days old already, quite some work has happened in the branch since then again.
