Re: New Windows-like Kali Linux theme

The copy of icons and themes is forbidden, if it's identical to the original, because of brevets and licences... Kali Linux is not a small noname distribution. If Kali doing it, than it is legal. And if it is legal for Kali, then it is legal for ReactOS, too. Behind Kali standing a company called "...

Re: exFAT filesystem and specifications to be open-sourced by Microsoft

As I know, the OIW exists, to have Linux patent free.
So, GNU/Linux, forks of it and all based on it, can be using for exaple exFAT without paying patent fees.
But ReactOS is not Linux, nor is it based on it. So I am not sure, if that helps ReactOS.

Why would you want to have sqrt(2.3)^2.3 - 2.3 == 0 ? (it should not be equal to zero)
Power of 2.3 is **NOT** the inverse function of square-root.

Or I don't understand your comment?
Sorry. My mistake.
I mean sqrt(2.3)^2 - 2.3 which is on the Microsoft-calculator != 0.
