Re: Disk Drives vs. Mount Points ?.

ROS had better support Volume Mount Points:
Volume Mount Points are supported from NTFS 3.0, which was introduced with Windows 2000.

Re: RealHW: Serial port not found!

You could try setting the boot option DEBUGPORT=SCREEN or just choosing the "ReactOS (Screen)" option at boot time.

Assuming all versions of Visual Studio have the same or similar licenses, they likely have this in there (this was taken from the Visual Studio Community 2019 license):

Re: new user

interested in knowing when ReactOS will be ready to use "It will be ready when it's ready." There is no solid timeline for a 1.0 release. It's very useable now, but the definition of "useable" will be different based on what you are trying to do. Will it work on a Raspberry Pi or does it need a PC ...

Re: How do you disable the fat shutdown dialog buttons in recent nightly builds?

Presumably, according to the PR that made the change: https://github.com/reactos/reactos/pull/2762 It might go back to the other style if you install ROS as a "server".

Edit: Just tested with the latest nightly and this is correct.

Re: Would ReactOS work on these 2 barebones?

It's impossible to say for sure, but on the plus side they both have serial ports so you should be able to do some debugging more easily.

Re: Anyway to get Bluetooth in VirtualBox?

I believe by default audio is enabled and will output to your default audio device. Check your VM settings to make sure. The more likely issue is that the audio in your ReactOS install isn't working since that had been an ongoing issue. The wiki is a bit out of date, but check it out for some hints:...

Re: Steam and other game launchers

ReactOS is more likely to work better if your interest in games is more retro. 3d can still be difficult to get working properly and drivers for modern GPUs probably won't work. I know someone has gotten an older version of Steam to work, but I haven't heard anything about Origin. As is almost alway...

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!...
