Re: What do you think of Unix Like systems?

What's your source for that? ReactOS has always been an attempt at an operating system compatible with applications and drivers. There has never been an attempt to have the same inner workings. For that, you'd need to clone the original source code, and extensive effort has gone into ensuring that ...

Re: What do you think of Unix Like systems?

ReactOS is in the same way a clone as Libre Office is. Compatibility to a format. Same behavior to the world outside. Totally different inside. Which is not the case of ROS which tries (as far as I know) to follow the Windows design as close as possible. Not only being compatible with the "result" ...

Re: What do you think of Unix Like systems?

ReactOS is an implementation of the NT architecture with a Win32 subsystem. So technically, no, we're not a clone. As Samba is an implementation of CIFS. Trying to reproduce the exact same behaviour of Windows sounds cloning to me more than support for a file format like (any) MS Office alternative...

No offense, but to create a clone is not the point of ROS?

Ionescu's talk in Montreal

As the title said, it is possible to watch somewhere the video or/and to have slides of the recent Ionescu's talk about ROS in Montreal? Thanks!

Re: Media player Classic on Github

It's weird (imo) that people here are so concerned with "details" when the entire thing is barely usable.

Re: Alcune domande:ARM, Atom, Mono e condivisione con Linux.

Non per dire (magari ho capito male) ma cosa se ne fa uno di una "distribuzione" Cygwin quando può usare

Re: ReactOS Window Manager

The other way around would be interesting. As a pure X11 Window Manager maybe too chatty and slow with too many roundtrips (not to mention supporting all the requirements). But directly on top of KMS/DRM would be really fast and light (as a kernel module like in Windows). QT and GTK already happily ...
