Re: Question about graphical subsystem

I am not an expert so I can't answer with all of the details, but the windowing system is implemented as a combination of USER + GDI. USER is in turn a combination of user32.dll and the ntuser part of win32k, while GDI is a combination of gdi32.dll and the ntgdi part of win32k. USER takes care of th...

Re: Benefits of GitHub?

Then I'm sad to inform you, that we only use github for pull requests, not for submitting bug reports. That still goes through JIRA. ;P

Re: Benefits of GitHub?

I don't normally post in the forums, but I will make an exception this time: Public exposure: github is widely known and makes it easy for existing git users to contribute. Local git history: everyone gets an entire copy of all the history, meaning browsing the logs, creating branches, etc. are all ...

Re: Reactos Shell on Server 2012 r2

I'd recommend at least Notepad++, if not Visual Studio, but yes, Notepad would do.

Re: Reactos Shell on Server 2012 r2

There's no need for a patch, just get the latest code, open precomp.h inside the explorer folder, and turn on "WIN7_COMPAT_MODE". Then look for usages of that define, because you will want to change a few of them.

EDIT: Also, I have no idea what extra files you may need. You'll see when you try... ;P

Re: Reactos Shell on Server 2012 r2

Sorry I don't have the time currently to make such a patch for you. You will have to work it yourself.

Re: Reactos Shell on Server 2012 r2

There is a preprocessor flag in explorer's precomp.h to disable certain features that would prevent the shell from working on NT6 (vista and up). It was designed for easy debugging so it disables more than strictly necessary, including some features that you may consider essential, such as the deskt...

Re: Blog: Post-vacational resolutions

But how will it go, then? I mean, if it was just that undefined, and basically 'you get paid for working on ROS', then are you now continue to be paid as long as you work on ROS and *are* you working on something else of ROS right now? No, I'm not currently in an active contract. I'm on a sortof "h...

Re: Blog: Post-vacational resolutions

Giga, I'm a bit ambivalent towards this. At the one hand, you did an excellent job, and no doubt it is a tiring one, so I understand your feelings. On the other hand, I really wished you had finished the last parts of this particular job, as - strictly professional speaking - you were paid to do. M...

Yep. It takes someone a lot crazier than me (or a whole lot more dedicated) not to get burned out after a while.

Re: Blog: Post-vacational resolutions

Gigaherz You should us tell about what your other projects are, if it is not too personal. Who knows, someone here may want to assist you to succeed in those projects faster, so that you can come back to continue with reactos. :D Well, they are mostly gamedev-related, but I don't want to say exactl...

Re: Blog: Dislocated localizations

I fail to see what relation branches have to this bug cropping up. This was basically lack of testing coverage. Yeah it's not directly related, but it is true that SVN branches aren't the best. Compared to Git or Hg, for which branches are everything since their commits are bound to a parent, and a...

Question is if it will work well enough to be implemented. I don't want to get excited for nothing... ;P
