Re: Upload filters

I expected the original poster (OP) who started this topic to supply one or more appropriate web links to a fair, unbiased explanation of the proposed EU directive that the OP fears.

Re: ReactOS 0.4.10 on Qemu 3.0.0 problems

This time, pozzo, you picked a much better title for your topic than "Summary of experiences". Others in the future who search the ReactOS forums will be better able to determine if this topic is helpful to them. Thank you. First, search the ReactOS web site for "known problems" . The first link ret...

Re: Summary of experiences

...I have found a bug in React 0.4.12 running on qemu-3.0.0 x64: Not running any app, when I copied a large number of files from a CDROM using drag and drop to the desktop, I tried to close the window showing those files. This caused the entire desktop UI of React OS to crash and restart, which of ...

Re: Why ReactOS is Free ( Libre ) software?

I really don't want to see the acronym GLOSS (Gratis Libre Open Source Software) brought back from the dead.

Re: Summary of experiences

Hi, pozzo. Thank you for reporting what you did that seemed to resolve the problem you encountered. Sharing the exact command you used could be very helpful to others.

One other thing. Please, please, please always mention the version, version, version of any software you experiment with on ReactOS.

Time to give RAPPS its own topic and get back on topic "Media Player" here.

Re: I think fork Media Player Classic as ReactOS Media Player is a good choice

Code from other projects is never "free". When such code is added to ReactOS, it adds its own maintenance burden to the ReactOS project. Even keeping RAPPS free of bad download links is now a large maintenance burden.

Re: Periodic testing of ReactOS on real hardware.

I ... got the impression the devs don't want to even bother testing on real hardware. Running ReactOS on a virtual machine is convenient for the developers (devs). Virtual machines provide the devs fast design-code-build-test cycles. Creating a CD-ROM to load and install ReactOS on a PC introduces ...

Re: 提点建议 (Make some suggestions)

The use of English in the forums not dedicated to a specific language is strongly encouraged.

This "Tutorials" forum is for sharing a tutorial useful for the people who are experimenting with ReactOS.

Re: Mouse and keyboard don't work (Install CD)

I am glad you found a workaround for the problem you encountered, Reactions. Thank you for coming back to the ReactOS Support forum and sharing it with us. Maybe the details of your workaround will help the developers (devs) make a more robust fix that avoids the problem altogether. I assume by "wor...

Re: We urgently need a beta

The current status of PnP (Plug and Play) support is worth its own topic. Discussing it in this thread strays from this thread's topic.
