Re: Any custom or fork Builds of ReactOS

well, I have to say,, it's interesting, but maybe I'm asking the wrong questions? Lets say I wanted the shell from ReactOS. Linux has desktop environments or managers KDE,XFCE GNOME and so on, can ReactOS shell or interface,or desktop , i'm not sure what you would call it, be used on a linux system?...

Re: Any custom or fork Builds of ReactOS

wine is so linux can run windows apps. I don't need wine. Since ReactOS uses wine, ReactOS is linux,,,right? if thats the case,,it should be able to run linux apps.

Re: Any custom or fork Builds of ReactOS

Well i'm not saying for the ReactOS team to do anything, i'm just asking questions. No I don't mean a OS that runs windows and linux apps. My whole point is ReactOS theme is just like windows. The shell or API,,,i'm guessing is what linux needs. Windows API runs almost all apps, and I believe ReactO...

thanks

Re: Any custom or fork Builds of ReactOS

but I did not ask that, I asked if it's possible for the ReactOS base or kernel, to run linux apps? I don't think the question is crazy and the idea is good. WHY? well ReactOS is not linux, but it is a clone of windows, Since windows is still the best user friendly Operating System and the most used...

Re: Any custom or fork Builds of ReactOS

I am wondering, can the ReactOS kernel be used with linux apps? Could a person port to run linux apps and not windows apps?

the reason I asked that, is I tried ReactOS and I have had problems with it, but still, when it's done and working, why would anyone want to make a OS from any other base than ReactOS? It's fast and very different from linux. I just see ReactOS as the model for any new distro, once it's done. I trie...
