Re: reactos priority? or mess?

...dude you (LMH1, the original poster) fail to understand it's alpha...

Re: Can't set IP Address

I'm running release 11 under VirtualBox. The networking doesn't work. ... Welcome toml_12953 and thank you for giving ReactOS a try. I'm not a super-expert on ReactOS and I know little about its networking support. But one of the super-smart developer team members (devs) will probably see your supp...

I wondered how the OP could have discovered that virtio is already included in ReactOS builds.
Feel free to update any or all of those places with the updated information.

Unfortunately, the results returned on the first page were not helpful to me. The second link returned was a doxyge...

Re: 0.4.13 on IBM T42, working with glitches

... The laptop does not have the COM/RS-232 port directly on its chassis. It is however accessible via the port replicator. I tried fetching debug information this way and it worked just fine.

Re: Little idea about 64 bit problem

Rocket engineers have a saying, "To build a big rocket that flies, start with a small rocket that flies." Rocket engineering projects that start by trying to build an ambitiously big rocket usually end up with big explosions and nothing that flies. Microsoft Windows started as a platform that ran on...

Re: Codes of Conduct discussion

I feel oldman's pain. My personal rule is to avoid using words here that if I found them in a term paper written for a university STEM class then I'd give that student a lower mark.
