Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

Win9x family is just as a proper OS as NT. What all these have in common? well after windows 2000 we just have adds and mods and nothing more So yes many things in windows 2000 might work on windows 10, why? well due to compatibility, windows 10 is not something new, it's base is still on NT kernel,...

Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

you know, if you decided, that shitting modern versions of Windows is a cool way to introduce yourself over here and look as a "homie", you definitely haven't hit. there are people, that might be on the same page, but as well, there definitely are ones, that won't appreciate this shitstorm tone. it'...

Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

But the Kernel doesn't change a lot since decades
are you really sure? or it's just how you think it is, based on...? it has changed a lot, even on the exposed API level. that's why it's infeasible now to retarget ROS to, say, Vista, let alone Win 10.

Re: Will something like linux swap partitons be on ReactOS?

The title says it all. they are not linux and not swap. it's a partition used to throw there process pages, when RAM becomes scarce. so it's not swapping. swapping an entire working set of one process to another one's was a unixy thing in 70ths, hence the name. what is now, would be more correctly ...

Re: Original Microsoft OpenSource Windows parts

And if Microsoft know, that Windows could be a little bit faster and smaller, by simply changing the compiler, who belives, that they would stay on its Visual C++? I am wondering, have you actually read the post in the link you showed as a "proof" that clang is better? where actually clang is compa...

Re: Telegram Desktop ends support of Windows XP

@irony: Dude, no need to blow up over something so trivial, quim obviously didn't know that they should first look to Microsoft's documentation , then other places. right. :D it's too hard to comprehend. I just helped giving him the link anyway, no "blowing up", it looked very suspicious, that a st...

Re: Telegram Desktop ends support of Windows XP

quim, why you search info on a WinAPI function on a whine site, instead of where it really belongs? where it is perfectly documented . that "not documeted" on the whine site means, that they (whiners) all are c00l h4ck3rz and writing documentation is not for them and totally not, that MS hid the spe...

Re: Would Microsoft replace NT Kernel with Linux kernel?

RPi is POS. and I don't mean Point Of Sale. :lol: 1) it's barely usable as a desktop 2) its documentation is near to non-existent 3) it's not even an ARM machine, it's a VideoCore machine with an ARM CPU attached as a toy controller (ARM for example doesn't have access to many peripherals and doesn'...

Also, what have you contributed to ReactOS?
by the way, wanna help me to contribute to ROS? donate (or just lease) to me Pinebook Pro and I'll try to bring ROS on it up (it's 64 bit ARM). it's 200$. ;) :lol:

Re: Wayland gives ReactOS new life?

somehow, people commenting on this thread miss the OP point, despite purplegirl and others reminded about it. the author meant, that because of his dissatisfaction with wayland, he wants to take a look at ReactOS and also he projects his feelings on other linux users, potential ROS users. this is wh...

Re: Would Microsoft replace NT Kernel with Linux kernel?

Yep, that's ReactOS. 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 somethin...

No, it wasn't contradictive. It took me 1 minute to find those pics.

Do you guys think that Microsoft would replace NT Kernel with Linux Kernel in future versions of Windows to come? Any possibility? 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 s...
