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

The community takes a little getting used to, there are conventions as to the right thing to say/contribute &c (just as all communities) but they are a nice enough 'bunch' - I am sure you will be welcome. Be sure to introduce yourself and your ski...

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....

Why Vimeo? YouTube is perfectly fine.
YouTube doesn't support all CC licenses (= "stole" your contents).

Re: Should I make a Pinball game for ReactOS?

Why "reinvent the weel" ? It could be more interesting to test existing open source pinball games to ROS, IMHO: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pinballnext/ ...or to port from other platforms: https://sourceforge.net/projects/pinball/ Last but not least, as always, it would be even better to involv...
