Now Microsoft has put up a page saying they want money for the use of FAT. Almost all usb drives and memory sticks/cards use FAT Linux supports fat . In fact ost OSs use or s...

Status of StarCraft

Does anyone know that status of StarCraft on ReactOS? I know it runs well for me on Linux/Wine, but the last I heard it was very broken for ReactOS.

sol and winemine

Were sol.exe and winemine.exe games purposely left out of the start menu?

tango

I have taken a look at the tango project and think it is a great idea and believe ReactOS should consider this as an option. At a min, learn from it.

I have notice that the newest release of Ubuntu Linux is using many of these icons.

Me use the old school theme also, or i use any shell remplacement yo get a more clear interface, but HATE the fancy xp look, it speed down a lot the pc and is bigger than the old and less funcional for me. :) This is true.

Wine gives you a choice on the look of the GUI, why can't ReactOS. Some will prefer 2000 look. Other will want something more modern. I don't know a whole lot about the GDI, USER32 internal protocols, but I don't think a switch in the registry to change the way things are drawn would be that hard to...

ClamAV

Just for information purposes:

Thanks to all for the input; using a windows bootable recovery disk, I was able to get ReactOS running on the Dell Desktop. :)

I was impressed with how much has been done in 8 months from the last time I touched the OS! ReactOS is starting to mature into a nice OS.

for lilo, you'll need to configure your /etc/lilo.config file to point to freeloader.sys Assuming you know how to alter lilo.config correctly, you can pick up the parameters from here That will be rather hard to do since I reformatted and installed ReactOS on the hard drive. The problem is that LIL...
