Re: command and conquer 3

EA has mest up the story they forgot what happened in firestorm Finally, somebody else recognizes this. Earth was supposed to be on the brink of toxicity to all human life, and full of tiberium-based lifeforms. CABAL was supposed to be one with Kane. etc. Anyway, I find the single-player campaign v...

ReactOS .3.1 was release in the middle of us rewriting the kernel. Because of this, it has very poor compatibility with real hardware. You might want to try the .3.0 live cd, or try the next release in a few months. Also, testing it out under vmware or qemu (possibly with kqemu) is the best way to t...

Add new compatibility info newsletters/releases

I have noticed that many of the recent changes have been for things under the hood. A rewrite of the storage system may not sound as exciting as the new device manager, but it is very useful because it provides compatibility. Perhaps when the newsletter is written or when we write release notes, we ...

Considering that ReactOS aims to have a very familiar UI for windows users, I doubt it will be implemented.

Don't forget that since this is a free software project, ReactOS uses the closest thing there is to official free software icons: tango.

I've heard about this for a while, but never used it because I have never had a mac. I like how they have ROS in the lost of OS's on the home page. The one thing I should probably mention is that it does not appear to have a virtualization/accelerator module available. It would be alot more useful f...

I just used it with build 26159, so yes, it does work with trunk (assuming trunk doesn't get broken again.)
Just keep in mind that this build makes you wait two minutes before starting a real ROS session.

Qemu Manager - now a complete virtualization suite

Good news. Kqemu is now under the GPL, qemu manager has come along nicely, and qemu has been great for a long time. This means that for windows users, there is now an easy to use virtualization suite, not just an emulation suite. Download and install the latest version of Qemu Manager (currently 4.0...

I think this is an overall good idea, but I should warn you that the FSF and their strict followers oppose hosting flash content (or java) until a free flash player ( gnash ) is developed, and I bet a usable one won't be out for a year or so. Although quite frankly, if the FSF does make a big deal o...

It is well known that DRM systems reduce performance, and often prevent your system from working properly when they mess up. This disadvantage for windows is however only a small one for the average user. Hopefully it will help people lean towards linux soon, and help people lean towards ReactOS onc...

I tried KDE/cygwin 3.4.1 a while ago. I got it working, but It still was not that usable. Wait for the native win32 KDE 4 stuff.

Don't forget how IE is actually designed. Iexplore.exe is less than 100KB, and there isn't much else in the internet explorer folder at all. All the real components are libraries in your system, that can be accessed by any web browser that wants to use them, such as MSN explorer or crazybrowser. Usi...
