Topic: We need Use another Compiler !
Replies: 9
Views: 6938

The reason GCC is used over the other compilers is it is OSS. Also in the past there have been issues with the licensing of the Visual C compiler (which I think wouldn't effect most software, but I think it would in the case of an operating system). In the past I had installed the Intel compiler, bu...

My only recommendation for your logo is to make the inside border thing not blue (cause it blends in with the blue on the bottom left and that looks off)

its not worth the trouble i think and please let the ros programmers first complete the core and shell!! Actually the people developing the package manager aren't developing the core and shell. Remember this is an open source project, so people developing in one area may not want to be (or can) dev...

from what i can tell, the argument for a text based registry, is, so you can edit it easily I don't want a plain text registry because it is easily editable, I want it because it would be _MUCH_ faster than a binary registry (you would have to write a DB from scratch for a binary registry, when a D...

Linux FSs support extended ACLs (at least all that NTFS supports). And basic permissions in *nix looks more like: Owner: Read, Write, Execute, Set UserID (SUID, it will be executed w/ the owner's ID) Group: Read, Write, Execute, Set GroupID (SGID, it will be executed w/ the group's ID) Other: Read, ...

Once I had a program from Norton. Every time you installed a program it poped up and recorded all changes the program made, so they could be removed compleately. When one implements support for such things inside of the OS, it wouldn't even take much Resources. And what about keys the program made ...

'spatial view' is each folder opening in its own window.

GNOME recently made that the default in Nautilus and really pissed off a lot of their users.

All the functionality of a chroot environment would have to be added to the kernel, which probably wouldn't be easy. I think adding the ability to use chroots to ROS would be a good idea since its one of the greatest security measures in the *nix world (im counting the BSD 'jail' as just a hardened ...

Anyway, i think OpenBeFS would be better for ReactOS: OpenBFS Team Page I went to that link and according to that site it doesn't look like OpenBFS is anything special. It is supposed to become a 64 bit, journaled, database-like, multithreaded filesystem with great performance when dealing with lar...

as far as i know it relies on the fact that you cannot edit the registry without running windows that is using this registry ... that's why the emergency console (win2k) is not working when the registry is badly damaged (you need to log in to repair your windows). But I'm not a professional windows...

Will it be possible to mount partitions readonly? Maybe for programm files to keep these virus free. I think that will be a yes, probably most of the Linux/*nix mount options will be supported. Will ReactOS have a external partition for swap? I believe it will support both a swap file, and a swap p...

Maybe a sandbox environment could be setup for ReactiveX (like Java)?

I'm certain this has been discussed before, but what about ReiserFS? It's got all of NTFS's features and a well-working OSS implementation. Look earlier on in this thread :lol: I'm a big fan of Reiser FS (3 & 4). Also most Linux filesystems support full ACLs (like your forced to use w/ NTFS) along ...
