Re: What happens if you run virtualbox on reactos?

What happens if you run virtualbox on reactos? Until VirtualBox 5.2 you can try running it under ReactOS 32bits builds... (if everything works, if not Jira report) ReactOS is able to virtualize and emulate well using VirtualBox, QEMU, DOSBox... From 6.x.x is for 64 bits only.... to test under React...

Re: Two decades later...what's the point?

Microsoft doesn't give two flying fucks if you download Windows 98 and set it up in a VM. Ever try to install Windows XP or Server 2003 in a VM? Without a license or some sort of crack, you only get a few days of functionality until it stops working correctly. That would be fine enough for me, sinc...

Re: Wayland gives ReactOS new life?

I know. I forgot to make that more clear. I wanted to shut this discussion down with my reply ^^ Still being insufferable I see. This is an OT thread... you shouldn't be just going around "shutting it down" good grief man give it a rest. Anyway most of the OPs original points about wayland are wron...

Re: Intel deletes old drivers

Which is dumb because despite not being in support, Intel still can host the downloads to keep machines working, all of the driver's they're removing probably cost almost nothing in terms of storage. please tell us more with your undoubtedly years of experience maintaining products for thousands if...

Re: TheRegister: "ReactOS ‘a ripoff of the Windows Research Kernel’ claims Microsoft kernel engineer"

"The sooner this will calm down" It may calm down, but it will never be over unless ReactOS can document every single usage of these macro names, hacks and or undocumented kernel features (eg anything that pattern matches against WRK and other leaks etc...). That would mean having on hand public doc...

Re: Split: complain about mods and some users behavior

Well part of the problem is the signal to noise ratio gets so low.... I mean really I open up an interesting topic and it feels like half the posts are from mods telling people to speak english properly and or stay on topic :shock: ?

Split: complain about mods and some users behavior

Getting completely bent out of shape over word choice and grammar, while threatening people with repercussions is not helpful. I stop buy here every so often to see how things are progressing and 90% of the recent comments are with respect to moderators being overbearing with someone who's native la...

Re: $35 Atomic Pi (x86 Intel Atom Z8350 4GB RAM 16GB flash)

Actually the best CPU for ReactOS cost benefit wise would be one with the fastest single core speed.. and the lowest price. So basically an OCed Sempron 200GE to 4.1Ghz on an MSI motherboard (not all boards can OC this chip). Most of intel's CPUs that can OC are expensive...

Re: Last LibreOffice portable for Windows XP

"various apps will resurface" That is almost certainly not true... if ReactOS wants to support current applications the next target is Windows 7 compatibility, and after that Windows 10. GCC and LLVM will probably not revive support for XP. Instead of expecting outside developers to bring back kluge...
