Re: Windows 10 now hides local account option

Just for the record this feature can be re-enabled if you unplug the ethernet cable or remove the Wi-Fi dongles then the offline local account creation would show as normal.

Boot from USB Drive?

According to some reports on another thread on the General Discussion page apparently in the Nightly's build you can apparently now boot from USB if the post is true. I've tried the recent Nightly's on a USB drive and it doesn't yet boot from the USB and after the loading sequence it just goes to a ...

Re: Windows XP Silver theme?

Interesting idea! What about other themes that lets say were made during Windows XP's era? like for example those from Stardock Wincustomize site would they have a potential to run eventually?

Re: Combined setup

Thanks! I'll look forward to the moment when its been successfully implemented and done especially with the update process etc. I've also been reading that they've been trying to get the support implemented to load ReactOS installation via USB which I personally like the idea of.

Re: Linux and Mac software support for ReactOS, possible??

I thought that most of the current available software for Linux are already available for Windows if I'm not mistaken. Most of the open sourced games are already Windows-compatible the only difference which I find is that some of the GNU-apps aren't available yet.

Re: [BREAKING] CERN’s Microsoft Alternative project

It would have been good if they'd contributed to ReactOS's development. Though I doubt they would use it though due to the system not working 100% yet on real hardware only a limited amount.

Combined setup

Been wondering I heard awhile back that ReactOS had plans for a combined Live setup and BootCD setup iso image with an installer. Was this plan genuine and is this still in the pipeline?

Windows XP Silver theme?

Just a thought will ReactOS eventually have a set of themes similar to Windows XP themes like its silver theme? I did quite like that Silver theme and noticed that on the Black Mesa stand alone game it showed on the fictional computers a Windows 98 interface but with the Windows XP silver theme in u...

Re: Real Hardware

That depends on what you mean by "running" and "real hardware". There are some users who are running ReactOS on real hardware, but from like 2000-2006 era. Surprising my 840 EVO SSD actually runs quite well on ReactOS in AHCI mode. There are lots of bugs, bsods, crashes, etc, though. There is no re...

Real Hardware

I've been wondering, How close are the devs at getting the system to work under real hardware? I've sometimes been trying to install it on real hardware but the setup freezes and so on but at least the actual language setup on the setup iso now shows which is a major step since my last bug report in...

USB initial plug and play support wine

With Wine starting to implement initial plug and play support for USB devices does that mean ReactOS might eventually get USB to work fully on the operating system? I occasionally go back and forth trying ReactOS out but every time when I try the setup installation my USB Keyboard constantly freezes...

Re: [IDEA] The ReactOS Update

The Concept of the Idea is a good one but it is at the moment too early for developers to think about it and at the moment they're working towards 0.4 which if I'm not mistaken is basically nearing beta testing but certain components haven't been implemented yet like for example key components to ge...

Re: About showing pictures of hacked/illegal software

So if I understand right, under the DMCA any digital media with some soft of copy protection is protected, but what if it didn't use copy protection; for example, what if it was game that didn't have compiled data or DRM. Also would it still apply if I own the copyright to the thing, like for examp...

Re: Drivers

The market has pretty much made clear that it is not willing to pay for the overhead of properly secure software. As a company, Microsoft needs to make money so it produces software that the market is willing to pay for at a cost the market is willing to bear. Luckily, we don't have such a requirem...

Re: [IGG] The ReactOne by Reactor Systems

You can call someone a git and get away with it, it isn't quite swearing. I really thought he was doing it as a joke, a piss-take. I thought ReactOS was open sourced meaning anyone can modify and redistribute provided that they give credit when due, if not then is ReactOS true nature proprietary? P...
