Re: Blog: ReactOS printing for the first time!

This might be out of the scope of you're work, but have you looked at supporting the XPS print infrastructure as well?

Re: Goodnight, Server 2003

So the worst part is that MS's symbol server won't contain 2k3 symbols anymore, making reverse engineering that much harder.

Re: ReactOS Explorer Revamp

If you're interested in making a better start menu, then implementing CPersonalStartMenu would be much more useful.

Re: Automated social media posts

So, I've heard women don't like being referred to as "him", also, it's spam on the feed.

Re: EPIC WIN!

That's actually very cool. The latencies are however quite high, do you think you could investigate which ones are slow?

Re: Advanced File Progress Dialog

Ah, so we'll have to wait until IFileOperation and IOperationsProgressDialog are implemented before I see one of those features appear? I'm guessing that those two classes are also more flexible and extensible as well? That's correct. They're also probably not *that* hard to get something going wit...

Re: Advanced File Progress Dialog

I don't disagree that the file dialog isn't perfect or even ideal (and I wrote it). However: The file dialog is created by SHFileOperation, which is not the most powerful function and lacks a lot of the features which would be required. The file dialog itself is implemented in BrowseUI's IProgressDi...

Re: Blog: How do security issues happen?

Re: Blog: How do security issues happen?

C is a great language, but it's a bit embarrassing in that untyped or weakly typed pointers can be passed freely without a compilation error. I did some bug fixing on win32k font rendering recently, and there was so much global mutable state that no one could review the code... it was impossible to ...

Re: Pale Moon official software support

Hi, awesome, sounds great. ReactOS is currently targeting 2003 server SP1, which is kernel version 5.2. The long term goal is to move on to 6.+, but there are kernel issues which need to be sorted out before doing so. Userland API has some elements of vista+. At the moment ReactOS is 32 bit only, th...
