Active Directory

I think it would be more useful as a WinNT/2000 Clone if we implemented the security Win2000 uses. So you can actually use ROS in a corporate environment, having a different security system will make it a much more difficult transitition to ROS.

Or if you get small enough then the ant could be said to operate in different dimensions (string theory stuff). I dont think anybody does either squirrels or ants, so why not? They are both everywhere and neve...

LiveCD Temp Files error

i cant create temp files with the live CD, making almost all installations impossible. Can I change the TEMP directory to another drive or use a ram drive somehow?

I might not complete understand the subsystem Idea...but could you port the cross platform COM Mozilla thing to be its own subsystem?
Would it run faster or is it a waste of time?

USB support, MSI Installation support and video drivers should be done in all of ReactOS; not just a distro. And ROS devs are already working on them. Dont have a clue what wget is...but we do not want to have any learning curve for people going from windows to ROS The fun when there already install...

My understanding of XML is that its sorta layered so that if we make the registry in it we could have at the top of each key t...
