So it's not really a separate branch or anything, it's more of just an organizational change in how the team decides what gets priority in development?

Re: ReactOS Community Edition (Indiegogo)

ReactOS Community Edition seems much more on-point than Thorium Core was. It's directly ReactOS, not some highly-specialized derivative whose relationship to ReactOS is unclear to non-technical users, the benefits to the longstanding ReactOS community are clear and immediate, and the target amount i...

Re: Wikipedia Article Update Needed

...And the (English) Wikipedia page is updated! The only English secondary source I could find was an article on Softpedia, though, the ReactOS Facebook page had articles in every language except English. :P

If anyone else finds anything to add, edit on, edit on.

Re: Wikipedia Article Update Needed

If no one beats me to it, I'll try to find some time today to update it. I know Lone_Rifle was kinda the go-to guy a while back (he pushed it to become rated as a "good article", wound up bumping heads with him in the process, if you see this, my bad, I was a young Wikipedian then. :P) but it looks ...

Re: Thorium (ROS distribution) on kickstarter

Just to put the record straight - I work with a lot of Russian programmers and they are very, very good. Personally, I do associate the Russia federation with good programming skills - the history of Russian and Soviet computing is weird and fascinating and has produced some superb programming tale...

Re: Thorium (ROS distribution) on kickstarter

A question: Why did the team go through Kickstarter instead of something like Indiegogo? IMO expecting to raise $120,000 for a project pretty much every other computer nerd I know passes off as having no chance of ever being functional was suicide for Thorium. Kickstarter is all-or-nothing, Indiegog...

Re: Thorium (ROS distribution) on kickstarter

Don't get me wrong, like I said earlier, I support Thorium, especially if it means we finally have a way to fund ReactOS development. I just have a bad habit of seeing where things can go terribly wrong so I was voicing my concerns. :) I am familiar with Crossover, though to be honest I don't know a...

Re: Thorium (ROS distribution) on kickstarter

As far as the whole issue of no one understanding that Thorium != ReactOS, I think that the fact that the thread's title is misleading ("Thorium (ROS distribution) on Kickstarter") doesn't help. Basically, as far as I can understand it, Thorium is a cloud service optimized to run ReactOS, so Thorium...

Re: Massive task, ReactOS, needs help?

To answer one of zac123's original questions: Linux was created by Linus Torvalds, initially by himself, since he was dissatisfied with MINIX, a Unix-like operating system created by one of his teachers in college, Andrew Tannenbaum. Linux itself is a Unix clone, but none of the original code origin...

Re: ReactOS 0.3.13...

When you mentioned MS playing the incompatibility card, the whole DR-DOS fiasco popped in my head. But Sof T beat it to me. Dagnabbit. If MS does try to pull those tricks (and they already do with IE and such) it shouldn't get much farther than MS's own products. MS can't tell Blizzard to make Starc...

Microsoft produced a version of IE for Mac until 2003. It's no longer supported, and current versions are Windows-only.

Re: Current Development

For the record, I was trying to format two hard drives in Windows NT 4 to install it, Windows NT saw one big hard drive instead of one, I wasn't paying attention, and when it went to format, boom went the dynamite. (If I remember it correctly, it made a click sound, Windows froze, and that was it.) ...

Re: Internet Explorer

Legally, the EULA for Internet Explorer says you can't install it on non-Windows machines. I don't know how compatibility is with IE, but due to illegal nature of running IE on ReactOS, whether Firefox or Opera is currently running is probably more important than if IE is. In short, IE is a Windows ...

Re: Current Development

I'm not going to jump the gun and say you don't have a clue as to what you're talking about per-se, but you do seem somewhat deficient in understanding, to put it politely. Web design and programming are very different things. If you've ever jumped between writing HTML and C++, you know. The closest...

Re: Cant install Reactos on a computer

I have to say, if you got ReactOS working in Virtual PC, I'm impressed. I can't recall ReactOS working in Virtual PC in quite some time.

Unless that's been fixed without my knowing it. :P
