Re: ReactOS on Wine

Ya, like I said. I'm talking about just explorer.exe, not the whole OS.

Just to make Linux/Wine/Gnome look like Windows. You got the idea.

But it doesn't work good enough.

ReactOS on Wine

Has anyone tried to run ReactOS in Wine? I tried to run explorer.exe in Wine and it seems to work a little. The ReactOS desktop appears with the start menu and desktop icons. There are a few problems: - the start menu causes some unsupported fixme's in wine but it seems to work with the arrow keys. ...

Intel EFI includes FAT license

The Intel EFI spec includes an open source type license on FAT code which EFI uses.

Could also use this to work around MS patent.

memory

I've been having a lot of trouble installing too. I've noticed that it kept freezing right while copying shell32.dll (which is a big file) @ 54% complete and sometimes it would pass that but free memory would drop to 2%, and then soon after the next file the system would freeze (no red screens thoug...

mingw and cygwin do not support 64bit at all currently. If you use the -m64 switch all you get is : sorry, unimplemented: 64-bit mode not compiled in Hopefully that 4.3 branch will be released soon that someone mentioned. Later Pentiums included an extended 36bit address line (someone already mentio...

Another good file to check out is this: http://svn.reactos.org/svn/reactos/trunk/reactos/ntoskrnl/KrnlFun.c It's just a text file of the changes Alex has scheduled. For what ever reason you can't browse to it thru the SVN server, you have to know it's path. This file shows all the changes made to th...

SVN ISOs

If you want, just download the SVN ISOs. The SVN server builds a complete ISO everytime a patch is commited. http://svn.reactos.org/iso?M=D The M=D will sort by date. If you watch the CIA website you can track the patches that are still being applied to the 0.3.1 version as we speak. http://cia.navi...

Re: Vista features

And that is all Vista really is , Just "Eye Candy"..!! It's stupid what people will buy or do just to have the latest and coolest... Well, to be fair, there are a LOT of new technologies in Vista besides just eye-candy. Such as the disk resizing as I stated. A new backup system. And you can use a U...

I didn't buy it, it was a trial version that I downloaded from MS. I said that in my original post.

But would I buy it? Only if buying a new PC/laptop and was forced to.

Vista features

Well, Vista is officially released today. I've been running a trial version for a while and think there are some improvements that I hope make their way into ROS someday. Such as.... 1) The Desktop is treated as an App and shows on the ALT+TAB list. 2) Resize any partition in the local disk mgr (eve...

Using another language solves nothing. After all, higher order languages are compiled down to machine code. The Java Runtime Environment is nothing more than a program, I believe written in C++, that's been compiled to machine code. All the JRE does is take care of some of the heavy lifting. Which ...

Wow!
That seems a little far fetched.
Why not just bump up to Java and avoid any headaches.
Different CPUs work entirely different.
Instruction sets (386,SSE,MMX,etc), big/little endian, etc.

Are you sure/sane?
