Re: We urgently need a beta

A massive corporation like Microsoft releases one little bug and you deem them incapable? If Microsoft of all people can't squash 100% of bugs, you think anyone else is? Are you delusional? Even better, you think ReactOS slapping "beta" on itself is going to make it bug-free? Well, maybe it will wit...

Re: Year 2038 problem

I do not know. Others write something else that the problem of the year also has windows (only 32 bit) and on the other hand actually writes here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epoch_%28reference_date%29 that the time of Windows begins on 1 January 1601 so I do not know . Now I'm lost in all this. :...

Re: Year 2038 problem

This isn't a "Year 2038" problem, it's a "Linux developers are dumb as bricks" problem, every other Unix hardened against this about a decade before Linux did, and of course Windows has always used 64-bit time. I love it when the world panics over Linux being garbage, you'd think they'd learn by now...

Re: Why should I switch to ReactOS?

Don't switch to ReactOS, not yet. It's alpha-grade software, it's not finished, it will crash and corrupt your data and itself and require a reinstallation. You will immediately regret it if you install it on a computer you actually plan to use. You can follow the project and try to donate or bring...

Murdoch, if you don't know what to post where and how to do it, please just stop. He's responding like a bot that looks at a post, searches it online and posts the first link to try and look like a human to gain the forum's trust. He's posted like that several times. I would have reported him as a ...

Re: build recommendation

The current stable build, 0.4.7. Stable builds are considered more stable than the current development builds, development builds are not tested as well as stable builds. Please be aware that no build of ReactOS is considered stable at all yet, crashing and data corruption is basically guaranteed wh...

Re: Version compatibility

they came up with the best compromise they could between average user interaction and letting programs even do anything in the first place. I'm not convinced by this one line though I'd accept the rest of what you said. Should we just accept that we've all had negative experiences with Windows 'fea...

Re: Version compatibility

* Devices infected with trojans and rootkits despite the UAC and TrustedInstaller still being turned on - both of them actively prevented obviously malicious files from being deleted and their services to be disabled - it was frustrating and annoying as heck. So misusing a feature means that featur...

Nobody's considering it but you. I was making a correction so maybe in the future you know why things like this are bad. Don't try to correct me like that.

Re: One-Core API is a fraud

I overlooked the tree again. (Especially headers) One-Core API does not seem to include dirty code , so it's no problem. Using ReactOS and Wine code. However, author has a fork of WRK. We're thinking wrong. One-Core API is not a problem of its own, and the fork of WRK is in another branch. Resoluti...

Re: Version compatibility

UAC is garbage. TrustedInstaller is garbage. Symlinks are garbage that made impossible to install NT6 onto FAT32, not to mention that directory redirections only added unneeded and unwanted complexity with virtually zero benefits, including the security aspect. Administrating or repairing NT6+ is a...

Re: Version compatibility

How did I miss this? This is incredible :D This makes me want to ask a semi-related question. So, aside from implementing APIs, how much work would go into making ReactOS a complete NT6 instead of just emulation layers? What would be left after Windows 7 mode is completed? Aside from obvious stuff l...

Re: Chaning BSOD color

If you're looking to change the color of the BSOD I think you're having a little too much fun with the system :lol: If you're curious, a major issue here is how Windows 9x and Windows NT work. 9x BSOD's aren't actually blue screens of "death", they're warning screens. They're only for application cr...
