Re: Help please

Are you trying to boot from USB, because I did that recently with my 2007 HP Pavilion with a live key of version 0.4.12 and it hanged at the startup screen.

Re: What would happen to the ReactOS project if Microsoft decided to make Windows open source, and will it ever happen?

they would probably open-source only the components that Microsoft owns and can legally make open-source, and would release a free version of Windows Which components could be (list)? Pretty much anything Microsoft made themselves or has the rights to. I'm not sure about specific components but erk...

Re: What would happen to the ReactOS project if Microsoft decided to make Windows open source, and will it ever happen?

Yeah, some of the components that Microsoft bundles in do come from third-party sources, a lot of times through their "embrace, extend, extinguish" strategy, like Microsoft Defender. But there's a lot of Linux distributions that come packaged with proprietary elements, such as Ubuntu. Again, I think...

For that you use an Wayland Linux Distribution and install Wine on it.
Or use Cygwin/X or MSYS2, (or a WSL distro like Ubuntu for Windows) and run an X server and graphical application on WIndows.

Re: Would Microsoft replace NT Kernel with Linux kernel?

I follow ReactOS, Haiku and I honestly believe they are better than linux. of course, they have a lot of missing parts, they don't have even a 0.01% of workforce linux has, so they are incomparable with it by the readiness criterion. but unlike linux, they are based on something better, than linux ...

I don't understand all this thread, Wayland is for Linux and ReactOS has no link with it. ReactOS use its own GUI based on ReactOS Explorer.
I mean, is it possible to build ReactOS with just a command-line and run an X server and desktop environment on top of it?

Re: Would Microsoft replace NT Kernel with Linux kernel?

that would be the stupidest move in the industry of all the times. hard to say what everybody in MS should smoke and in what amount to make that decision. it would be something like replacing this (lamborghini diablo): https://images.cars.com/supersized/in/v1/4614117/ZA9DU01B31LA12698/5debbe6ded206...

Re: Would Microsoft replace NT Kernel with Linux kernel?

I don't thinks so. Otherwise, they have to release a GPL version of Windows without other proprietary stuff from their main version. And I don't think Microsoft is willing to completely open-source Windows 10 anytime soon.

It is a future plan. It's all in your head. :| You contributed zero lines of code to the project. It seems you are not aware you're just making up words. erkinalp, what your saying is not a bad idea in my opinion and these are good proposals if the developers would like to take a look at them.

Re: Possibilities For NTVDM and other Sub-Systems

No need to be included in ReactOS Minimal. Are you aware you're making up words? ENIW is just a concept for a proposal of a Linux subsystem for ReactOS. About the ReactOS "Minimal" thing, is it possible when ReactOS is ready for release it's going to come in different editions/flavors? Like a stand...

Re: Possibilities For NTVDM and other Sub-Systems

ENIW, unlike Wine or WSL 1, would delegate to Linux using a kernel-mode subsystem, and unlike WSL 2, will not use virtualisation, would instead use thunking to user-mode instance of Linux (this is no problem for us, because both are licensed under GPL 2). ELF interpretation is just a part of it. Th...
