You mean with people who took a peek at the Windows Research Kernel sources? :|
Uhm, no devs that are familiar with Windows kernel mods.

Split: Read this if you've found software useful to ReactOS #critics

I have shared a few links in Mattermost. But it's hard to find them among other things. I'd like to add them here with some additions: [..] Many of you probably know these already. I hope this does not count as spamming. ...and why not try to involve their devs into ReactOS ? I personally experienc...

[SUGGESTION] What about a (free) CodeGuru review?

1st of all this is NOT a promotional post, I simply believe that the opportunity to exploit the 90-day free of charge trial period should be used, since their code optimizer AI has been feeded with GitHub (maybe ReactOS too) projects' sources. What is Amazon CodeGuru ? It is a machine learning servi...

[REPORT] The Dark Reality of Open Source

Open source software (OSS) is now a major part of an organization’s attack surface and organizations are being blindsided by the increased risk to their security posture. RiskSense looked at the 50 most popular OSS projects and found that: Vulnerabilities spanned all phases of modern development fr...

[SUGGESTION] D3D implementation

Since discussions about DirectX (aka ReactX) are bit old, I try to revive them by suggesting to check out DXVK (already cited in these forums just a couple of time in the past) a Vulkan-based implementation of D3D9, D3D10 and D3D11 for Linux / Wine : https://github.com/doitsujin/dxvk Hope that some ...

Re: Read this if you've found software useful to ReactOS

Just found these interesting open source audio mixer projects that may help the ROS audio evolving. As always collaboration with 3rd party devs (instead of "stealing" their code) would be great: - http://crystal-mixer.sourceforge.net/ - https://github.com/Klocman/Automatic-Volume-Mixer - https://git...

Re: User "blackwingcat" from the msfn BB

Well, some years ago I was very active @ MSFN - https://msfn.org/board/profile/55261-patchworks/ - promoting open source stuff (ROS too, of course). I also lauched an idea to otain "a fully 100% working system since 0.00001 alpha release" that was called: http://www.forart.it/progetti/Opendows/logo....
