Re: how do i make a reactos application from scratch

Are you intending that the software gets built along with ROS in the Build Environment? Or are you just looking to bundle some pre-built software with it?

Devs should put power to WINE.
lol, they do though. Open source projects can and do push changes upstream and ReactOS uses a large chunk of WINE code. WINE is better today thanks to the work that ReactOS devs have put in.

Re: Two decades later...what's the point?

You seem to be under the assumption that ReactOS has called itself a viable alternative in it's present form. From the very top of the front page of the website: Imagine running your favorite Windows applications and drivers in an open-source environment you can trust. That's the mission of ReactOS!...

I thought I read some where that a 64 bit version had been pushed out.
It's been brought to the point of being bootable, but only just. It isn't officially available to the public as an ISO yet, but you can build your own if you really want to test with it.

you cooperate on code with linux on the wine-project, and all linux distros have perfect mouse support
This statement alone makes it clear that you have no idea what you're talking about. What does Wine have to do with mouse support? Nothing.

Re: Rapps-db pull request not merged

Since I'm too lazy to log into GitHub, I'll make the comment here - your SizeBytes is too small.
OLD VALUE: SizeBytes = 4206592
NEW VALUE: SizeBytes = 3684
I assume that the new version is larger than 3.6 kB...

Re: Reactos Enterprise/Education Edition

None of these are currently implemented. In the future the only one that is likely to come to pass would be Group Policy (since it's a Windows feature).

Re: Dell Vostro 400 Core2 ReactOS-0.4.13 Installer Freezes

The instructions oldman linked are for when you're building ReactOS yourself from source. I've never had luck attempting to edit a pre-made ISO, but I've heard that it's possible with certain tools.

Re: What would happen to the ReactOS project if Microsoft decided to make Windows open source, and will it ever happen?

Like I said. Open source more or less. Open-source software is a type of computer software in which source code is released under a license in which the copyright holder grants users the rights to use, study, change, and distribute the software to anyone and for any purpose. Windows Embedded Compac...

Re: [REPORT] The Dark Reality of Open Source

Open source is generating new vulnerabilities at a historically rapid pace. I'm not sure that this is something you can attribute to open source code necessarily. It feels like correlation but not necessarily causation. Also, I'm not sure it's significant, but it's interesting that about 47% of the...
