Reactos Driving a generic game console?

Just a thought: Would it be possible to tailor Reactos so that it worked well for games on a specific low-cost motherboard/video/sound combination? Developers could choose a specific hardware configuration and work toward getting Reactos to work on that configuration, with the idea that companies co...

A lurker's two cents If I got two real cents every time someone posted their "two cents" to the forum, I'd be rich by now. Well, if I got two cents for every time I posted my 'two cents' about an Open Source project I would have about 8 cents and all of them would come from posts on Reactos. Why Re...

Open Source Driver Design Kit?

I've never written a device driver, so what I'm going to suggest may be either impossible or already done. With that in mind: 1) Would it be possible to write an Open Source driver development toolkit as an alternative to Microsoft's tools? (2) If so, would it be possible to make that toolkit either...

Unfortunate reality

I'm not a lawyer, but I've had some contact with the court system, and that contact tells me one thing: The unforunate reality is that it is not enough for the bits of Reactos code in question to be technically legal.

A strong 'A'

I don't have a strong opinion on a lot of these things, but I strongly vote A on the first one, with an explanation: There are two reasons I would go with 'A'.
