Re: secure-delete on ReactOS

Separate-but-relevant question: Are there guidelines for when to NOT restart an old discussion? A link to the ReactOS Forum Code of Conduct is located in the Announcements portion of every forum.

I burnt a bootcd and tried to install it... Thank you for experimenting with ReactOS and letting us know the results that you saw. To have a chance of resolving the issue you encountered, we need some more information. What is "it"? Did you burn an actual CD or did you copy the .iso file to a USB t...

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.

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).
