Re: Concurrent Multi-User?

Crucially, ReactOS is missing session support, which is a monumental task.
Unfortunately, you won't be close to getting any multi user support until that's addressed.

p.s. I only commented on this because it was at 666 views. That's my good deed done for the day.

Re: Soon: Develop ReactOS in ReactOS

Relax, it's just a bit of fun.

I've been around reactos for a looong time, probably about 10 years.
If I playfully attack the project then it's an attack at myself more than anyone here.
I should be the one who's offended by my comments, not you guys.

Re: Soon: Develop ReactOS in ReactOS

So we're almost back to 2004 compatibility when we used to regularly build ros on ros Brilliant This has nothing to do with getting back to 6 years old states. The problems were, that I use many different commands in the RosBE Scripts and most were not or just wrong implemented. Now it gets slowly ...

Re: preinstall a program in reactos

You cant' just add program files to reactos and hope they run.
Installers do many weird and wonderful things. You have no idea what an installer might do and adding files will only work for the most simple of programs

Re: NTFS question

It's a library. It doesn't need to be ported, it needs an FSD wrapper similar to what Aleksey started with the fastfat library

Re: Helping out with Explorer New

I'll try to learn COM and ATL now (COM at least I know what it is about... ATL I have no idea) and report back again someday. ATL is a template library for use with COM. It's similar to MFC in many respects but it's much more lightweight and contained entierly within the headers, so there's no depe...

Re: Helping out with Explorer New

A lot of people are getting a lot of information wrong in this thread. Here are some facts to clear things up: 1. Explorer_new is C and it needs to remain C. I'm all for having a C++ explorer as it's a much better language for this tech (as it's layered entirely on COM) but you would have to rewrite...

Re: is ti possible to recompile kernel like linux ?

You will always need to recompile in order to support other architectures. You can't just recompile operating systems and have them work on different architectures. quoting the OP I am a curious Noob but am wondering if it is possible( like in Linux) to recompile the kernel so that different hard w...

Re: is ti possible to recompile kernel like linux ?

You don't need to recompile the kernel, it's fully configurable and dynamic by design.

The NT kernel is very different than the linux kernel.
Quite frankly, I find the idea of recompiling kernels absolutely insane.

Re: Not ready for prime time

Have you tried Windows?
Those guys at Microsoft have done a great job of getting Windows software to run on it
