Choose the "Download It" button near the top of the page. The "Download | ReactOS Project" page should appear. Scroll down this new page unti...

Re: Install modern games and apps

There is a ReactOS Wiki with much documentation. Try that also. At the top of the ReactOS.org home page, choose the ">Wik...

Re: Hardware compatability question

I am interested in this operating system but I have a lot of questions. What have you already done to find answers to your questions yourself? There is a ReactOS Wiki with much documentation. At the top of the ReactOS.org home page, choose the ">Wiki" link at the top of the page. Then in the sectio...

Re: TheRegister: "ReactOS ‘a ripoff of the Windows Research Kernel’ claims Microsoft kernel engineer"

"have the exact same names" The exact names of functions can be suspicious, but if Microsoft descriptions or documentations mention it, it's normal they used the same. I agree. Alex Ionescu in his talk that I linked to earlier mentions going over Microsoft's publicly released documentation very car...

Re: Can the following programs run on ReactOS?

Let's get back on topic.

A discussion of firewall software suitable to try with ReactOS deserves a topic of its own.

Re: Can the following programs run on ReactOS?

I do not see anything obvious on the ReactOS.org home page that would tell nerv agent or others that the ReactOS compatibility target is Windows Server 2003 (NT5). But I did visit ZoneAlarm.com and chose the links marked "Learn More" for both ZoneAlarm's free firewall and free anti-virus offerings. ...

Re: Re: Mascot for ReactOS

Worry about a mascot after ReactOS is stable and has at least one million users.

Re: TheRegister: "ReactOS ‘a ripoff of the Windows Research Kernel’ claims Microsoft kernel engineer"

Don't panic, irony. When I wrote "long ago Microsoft made those names public" I wasn't speaking of leaked builds but of Microsoft's intentionally published product documentation.

Re: TheRegister: "ReactOS ‘a ripoff of the Windows Research Kernel’ claims Microsoft kernel engineer"

Don't panic, Quim. Axel Rietschin offered no evidence in support of his claims. Yes, some bits of ReactOS use the same internal names that Microsoft Windows uses but long ago Microsoft made those names public. Microsoft appears to have no copyright or trademark rights to those names.

Re: TheRegister: "ReactOS ‘a ripoff of the Windows Research Kernel’ claims Microsoft kernel engineer"

"using only public documentation..." Axel Rietschin, the kernel engineer at Microsoft who is making these accusations, is unaware that there's more public documentation of Microsoft Windows than even Microsoft knows. Alex Ionescu spoke about that in his keynote speech to OffensiveCon19, "Reversing W...

...on which version or release of ReactOS?

And where can this "Metatrader4" be obtained? Are you sure it can run on Microsoft Windows XP/Server 2003 (the ReactOS compatibility target)?
