Does FreeLoader supports dual booting?
Or could Grub be the hero?
That I could not answer.

Re: Dual booting Win XP Pro and ReactOS

See signature. At least for now not worrying about dual booting, never really was a fan of dual booting anyway.

And its driving me nuts.

If anyone wondered why I mentioned dual boot, the old computer will be geared towards development. Related to visual basic 6, and ReactOS.

As for the newer computer, other goals and tasks.

Notepad, I'll never use it for code. ;)

Re: ReactOS programming language

Found out the hard way that dual booting won't happen. 1. Wiped hard drive clean with zero's * and partition * , split a 40 GB into 30 GB and 10 GB. 2. 30 GB allocated for Windows XP Pro, 10 GB allocated for ReactOS. 3.

Re: ReactOS programming language

My old computer in my signature was Windows XP Professional, now ReactOS. Actually considering dual booting (Win XP and ReactOS), if that ancient hard drive can handle it.

Re: ReactOS programming language

Thanks for the Atom recommendation, never heard of it before, along with jEdit.

Probably install that soon, and see what program suites me. Perhaps use all 3 mentioned, don't know.

Re: ReactOS programming language

Luckily jEdit was listed in Synaptic Package Manager, downloaded and installed. Looks promising, will try that.

Re: ReactOS programming language

Used Notepad++ in the past, actually very long time ago. Thanks for the hint.

On my primary computer, I use gEdit - configurable syntax highlighting for various languages (C, C++, Java, HTML, XML, Python, Perl and many others).

Re: Ideal ReactOS programming language

Thanks for the information also. Lots and lots to learn.

As of this post I am almost 54 years old, lots of time left.

Add: I'll probably look into C/C++, or at least C. A question, what program/tool for writing code.

ReactOS programming language

Would like to learn more about what is commonly used to develop ReactOS and/or software?

Thank you

I know some visual basic 6, even my 3 completed files/programs work with ReactOS, as long you install vbrun60sp6.
