Re: What do we expect from ROS?

I expect ReactOS to be to Windows, what Linux is to UNIX! There is already a bit of a problem with this. The Linux kernel was never meant to be binary compatible with UNIX, for example, BSD uses an emulator to run Linux binaries. Programs are being ported to Hurd, MINIX, and so on. ReactOS has quit...

Re: internet browser in live cd

This is a little bit OTT, but does ReactOS require IE to run the same way Windows does?

If not, it might make more sense to just have a rebranded version of Firefox :P

Re: ReactOS Release date are we closer?

I feel like it was a couple days a couple days ago, and a couple days before that... :P

Not complaining though! I want this to be a really great release.

Re: What do we expect from ROS?

Also I like the fact that ROS has it's own application manager. The possibility of running only FOSS applications on Windows is something I am really looking forward to :)

Re: ReactOS Cellphone Themes

After writing the desktop OS, there's nothing stopping an independent entity from porting ReactOS to the ARM architecture, the same way Windows 8 was ported to ARM. But we have to write the operating system before anyone can port, that's a much more difficult task. ReactOS isn't really being left be...

Re: What do we expect from ROS?

Based on some light research I have done, the security of Unix-like is the implementation of multi-user environment and the principle of least privlege, as well as some other things that make malware difficult to spread. Can these be implemented in ReactOS without losing Windows functionality?

Wine is GNU LGPL. Of course it can be modified and redistributed.

AHAHAHA I was so confused >.<

It's the type of PR excuse Microsoft would make for doing such an obviously ill-willed act.

Re: Suggestions for 0.4 Roadmap

I absolutely agree with your top two priorities, hopefully they are everyone's priorities, to have fewer crashes and more working apps. Everything else seems trivial in comparison IMO (not that they aren't important, but in comparison). But how much improvement do you suppose is enough for 0.4?
