KISS: recovery should be done w/o environment subsystems

Hi, this is just a note from a developer. As ROS gets its internals design from NT's (and back from DEC Prism's), you have to keep in mind that high level operating systems (Win32, OS/2, POSIX, VMS...) should be off when you attempt a system recovery. This can be performed easily in ROS (just like i...

Spread ROS - Spread ReactOS

Please, spread ROS/ReactOS! It is nice your interest in the project, but the current group of developers can't write the whole OS. The more developers the quicker you will get a free Windows(tm) replacement that will give you back your freedom. Please, spread ROS/ReactOS! Tell about ROS/ReactOS - y...

drive letters and mount points in Windows 2000+

Since NT 3.1, drive letters are symbolic links in the kernel name space, not real device names, like in VMS and in DOS.

Since Windows 2000 you can mount physical and logical NTFS volumes to directories. They are named "junctions".

Re: Tweak in your idea...

Windows Bianries are so closely linked to the ix86 architecure that the only prograsm that may work on a 68K version of Reactos are those that have been re-compiled mnually. Of course, it looks strange only to Windows users that you can recompile a program to run it on your hardware. NT was availab...

Storicamente, ros è stato testato dentro bochs http://bochs.sourceforge.net/ , attualmente quasi abbandonato, per la lentezza della versione corrente (ma la beta della prossima 2.2 è molto migliore), in favore di qemu http://fabrice.bellard.free.fr/qemu/ .

X/11 over win32k.sys

We follow the Windows model for the GUI, meaning the desktop is not X11 based. You can't drop-in e.g. KDE or GNOME. As GvG pointed out, the ReactOS GUI is not based on the X project design and API, but... given that the low level graphical API is documented (at least documented in the sense that yo...

Re: Contribuire

Salve mi sono iscritto da poco al sito, Benvenuto! :) domanda semplice: come si può contribuire allo sviluppo di reactos? non intendo programmare. Cose + terra terra. :-) Puoi testarlo, su macchine virtuali, come VMWare (se ce l'hai), o QEmu, oppure su macchine reali (se ne hai qualcuna dismessa in...

NT or ROS?

does anyone know informations about porting a file system from linux to ifs? any help would be great. For NT/2000/XP/2003 you definitely need to buy the IFS kit from MS. If your goal is contributing a port of a file system driver, from Linux to ROS, look example code here: http://svn.reactos.com/vi...

I've got a question which might be slightly off topic: If I want to include other software in the ReactOS-ISO, how would I do that?

Registry is not that bad

Did you know that AIX, the 64-bit UNIX by IBM, also contains a registry? Little files are easy to use in little installments, with little applications, but when you need to configure a distributed, enterprise level application a transaction based database that contains your bootstrap-time and run-ti...

They're recreating a partially POSIX-compliant OS, why not finish the job? That POSIX-compliant subsystem looks like Windows 2000. In Windows 2000, on NTFS volumes, you can create hard links and symbolic links (to directories and whole logical volumes only). The problem is that Microsoft does not p...
