Re: Aspects of Vista/7/8/10 that should NOT be ported to React

XP's taskbar was resizable vertically by hand, ie. you could drag the top of the taskbar and shrink it in size so it was a mere sliver or expand it back up again. This was quite a useful function when you had the taskbar placed at the top of the screen (strangely, normal for some) and you found one...

Re: I cannot login Reactos bug tracker

I have found (over several months) that from time to time I have to log in again, though I have ticked the remember me box and when I have activated the form, nothing appears, so I reload the window and get the latest reports. This only seems to happen when I have had to log in again. So try loadin...

I cannot login Reactos bug tracker

I tried K-Meleon and Pale Moon browsers, but there is simply a progress bar that remains infinitely. Since I am able to write here without separate login on the website, that login attempt worked for the website but cannot allow me to access the bug tracker. Is this made so intentionally? Why you co...

Re: My specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

Windows took wrong direction after Bill Gates left. It seems Nadella hates Windows technology and all Gates heritage and strives to kill Windows as we know it by gradually transforming it into some totally different operating system.

Re: Will ReactOS be ready when Windows 8.1 is phased out?

IMO just install classic shell on win 8/8.1/10 and it runs fine. Just tell it to ignore all metro apps and it runs like win7 with a bit of quirkiness. http://www.classicshell.net/ If you do not kill Metro, it consumes processing power, memory and, and if you are using Classic theme, on waking up fr...

Re: Will ReactOS be ready when Windows 8.1 is phased out?

All I can find about fxxkmetro is it was found on a Chinese forum somewhere, don't see any source and definitely wouldn't put it on my PC. Looking at the instructions, it probably just blocks any attempt to call the metro interface from the desktop and needs to be rerun whenever the PC reboots. Hid...

Re: Will ReactOS be ready when Windows 8.1 is phased out?

As for replacing the metro interface on WIndows 8 and above, I don't think that will be possible since the old WIndows shell runs inside of a metro program (at least in 8). Can you please elaborate? Programs like fxxkmetro kill the metro thread successfully without damaging other function. But what...

Will ReactOS be ready when Windows 8.1 is phased out?

I dislike Windows 10, and currently using Windows 8.1. I wonder whether ReactOS will be ready when third-party software will require Windows 10 to run. I also wonder whether I would be able to use ReactOS shell under newer Windows versions as a replacement to the "Metro" interface. Here is my deskto...

Re: BASIC dialects in ROS

В Моно есть компилятор Бейсика VBNC. Но я считаю, что нужно создать полную копию VB6 вместе со средой разработки. Он очень востребован, просто МС упёрлась рогом. Были петиции и т.д.
