Re: We Should Add Additional Project Content to the Homepage

Personally I have never used RSS and most of the people I know if I mentioned RSS would tell me "What's RSS?". Another point is where is this RSS feed? Is there anything pointing to it's existence? I have no idea where it is.

Re: abandoned?

That is not the goal of this project at all. This project is not trying to get other products to make themselves compatible with it(Microsoft included). Rather it is trying to become more like windows which these programs are already compatible with.

Re: The $500 Good Code Grant 2.0

maybe create some type of optional(unless it happens to be really fast) program filter that detects bad programming practices as the program is loaded to memory? Then ReactOs could keep a log of some of the bad practices it detects, possibly along with an optional messagebox that appears if at least...

Re: Smartbooks?

The problem I would suspect would be the ARM processors. I do seem to remember an ARM porting effort but I don't know what the full results of that effort was. Even if it did work there would likely be issues with running windows applications unless there was some sort of emulation layer to handle t...

Re: Netbooks, Netbooks, Netbooks...

Tried to install reactos svn versions 44758 and 44561 on my acer aspire one 150. With the live cd the installation froze on a freeloader screen with the words "Loading NT" over a progress bar which did not seem to be moving. With the boot cd it froze during the beginning of the setup when there was ...

Re: Which your favorite programming language??

VB.net 2005, When they added WPF it seemed to get real confusing how to do some of the things I could easily do in GDI++. Particularly when dealing with dynamically generated bitmaps. Also you had to do things like make sure you had the correct rectangle class and methods between WPF and GDI seemed ...

Re: ReactOS 0.3.11 progress...

At the point of the move to the OffTopic section the discussion seemed to be more focused on comparing ReactOS to linux than on "ReactOS 0.3.11 progress". Even before that the topic from the discussion seemed to be on release proceedures and how information is provided more than the state of the 0.3...

Re: ReactOS 0.3.11 progress...

Thought I would point out that this thread was not originally in Off-Topic, but was moved here when the talk went off on a tangent.

Re: Some General Inqueries...

Here is another question that seems related. Will ReactOs run on a 64-bit processor as a 32-bit operating system like Windows XP/Vista 32-bit versions work on 64-bit processors?

Duplicated code

I was wondering if you were interested in hearing about locations in the source code where there is significant code duplication. And if so where I should report it. I probably won't be making a bunch of patches as I might inadvertently create a bug with my lack of C knowledge(I do understand progra...

Re: Netbooks, Netbooks, Netbooks...

This setup actually should only require usb support from the bios to install to the local hard drive if I did my reading right. The image is actually being saved to a ramdisk before boot due to the --mem option on the map command. Also this is being emulated as a CD(that is what the hd32 is about). ...

I think I remember the answer is supposed to be 490 times(70*7), but for many of us the answer seems to get obscured for some reason.

Re: Netbooks, Netbooks, Netbooks...

I just recently figured out how to get the install cd iso to boot from usb on my Acer Aspire One. Unfortunately it does nothing once it reaches the first loading screen for the setup. To pull this much off on a separate computer I 1.used a windows 98se bootdisk image from here http://www.bootdisk.co...

Re: 0.3.11 September

Maybe the progress bar would be for a version number change(vs total project).
