Re: ReactX status

I have just a meandering question.

Would pushing compatibility between ROS and DirectX first making developing ReactX easier, or is there no shortcut to be found there? Although I suppose individuals willing to install directx on a compatible ros system would have a viable workaround.

Re: Virus Virus Virus!

I totally agree that real integrated security would be fantastic, and that ROS would have a real chance for something to boast about here compared to windows by packaging things like bootable virus and spyware scanners (I LOVE avast's boot time scan). I'm not sure that worrying about it now, while t...

Re: Could ROS already be stumbling block for Windows 7

One of the things that I've noticed as Windows 7 approaches, is that a lot of the early tests are commenting on how much of the kernel code 7 shares with Vista. If Microsoft is going to continue 'beating down the wrong path' so to speak, the timely release of ROS beta along with Microsoft's growing ...

Re: Windows Drivers

One thing that would be on my wishlist for ROS regarding drivers is beating out windows on their "we'll find a driver online" for you which never works. Nothing is more frustrating then being unable to find a driver, and then in a last ditch effort, using windows' automatic driver updater which yet ...

Re: How make shared folder?

the slickest way might be to run an ftp server on your pc (like filezilla for example.) Then you could use firefox inside ROS to read/write any files that you decide to share.

Re: 0.3.6 Released

I'm afraid that I don't know squat about how the developers created what will be the best OS ever, but a sincere thank you from a ROS fanboy. Best wishes on the success of your crusade.

Hello ReactOS Devlopers- I am pretty new to reactOS. I download 0.3.0 full install about two weeks ago and tried it on a computer (I have the enormous luxury of working in a technology department), and I had no end of trouble with it. Right now I am running 0.3.1 on Qemu on my computer and it's work...

ok, well I followed the advice of another post, and copied all of the system32 folder from xp, not replaing anything there, as well as the inf folder, so I think it's already on there. What would be the next step? (If there's a wiki entry on this, I'm really sorry for not looking close enough)

No it isn't, I guess that's part of my question. I don't really know how or where to put if, or how to register hack. I suppose the first step would be to find the driver and burn it to a cd?

DHCP Network setup

Hi, I am pretty new to ReactOS, and if this is a duplicate post, I'm sorry but I couldn't find any posts to help me. I've set up a real computer with 0.3 and haven't had much luck with it. It does boot, and the first thing I have been trying to overcome is getting connected to the network. My campus...
