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: Understanding the Reactos Installer

A dev will be able to provide a better answer, but presumably somewhere around here: https://github.com/reactos/reactos/blob ... up.c#L4973

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...

Re: Viruses?

viruses can easily be hidden behind complex code Think about this for a second though; what would a virus hidden in an OS be infecting? The OS itself? To what end? The last release (not debug!) build of a release level build was at the end of April I can't say why there hasn't been a release build ...

What do the ReactOS developers use to communicate?
IRC, Mattermost, email, JIRA, GitHub? Yes they all work in ROS in one way or another.

Re: Not installing on ASUS EEEPC 1000 HG

You should be able to burn it to a CD and install that way. What ISO are you using? What error are you seeing?

Re: Kernel progress?

The release announcements alone take weeks of work to write and polish, nevermind also writing regular blog post updates about what's going on at an acceptable level of quality. If there were a dedicated ReactOS PR person who knew enough about the technical stuff going on, maybe that would be viable...

Re: ReactOS in the wild

It seems they are using ReactOS' command line interpreter (cmd.exe), which is itself based on the one from FreeDOS (hence "Tim Norman" appearing in the copyright license). Do you say this based only on the Tim Norman reference, or is there something else you found? All I can see from FLIR themselve...
