Re: ReactOS on VirtualBox

Is it an iso file or source code that has to compiled and built followed by creating an iso? The SVN builds are just .ISO files that have been 7-zipped - no compiling of code required. Incidentally, the *.vmdk hard-disk files that QEMU uses can also be used by VMWare Player, so you should be able t...

explorer_new already looks pretty much the same as Windows XP with the classic theme.

Re: Reacty Design

My idea was to use it for mascot of a future web, with forums to help users of ROS or something like that :D See, I'd personally just use the atom logo or these dandy "REACTOS USER" signature image thingies rather than a mascot of some kind. I'm also kind of worried that Reacty would end up being t...

It wasn't sarcasm, it was a joke.

If you have a character, such as Reacty, surely he has to do something, right?

Anyway, no offense meant.

Re: ReactOS on VirtualBox

Hello there and welcome to the ReactOS forums. I haven't used VirtualBox myself, but you might like to try installing one of the SVN development builds , since a lot of progress has been made since 0.3.4. From my own experiences with QEMU and VMWare, I know that Firefox 2 works just fine on the late...

Re: Reacty Design

Your way of speaking resembles me the case of pidgin and the recent creation of his fork, and everything only for not wanting to listen to the users. The case is not this, but they cannot be despised this way. Speaking as one of those users, with no affiliation with any members of the dev team, I a...

Re: Suggestions for default programs in ROS

Well, Windows =! ROS :) ReactOS = Windows - ( bells + whistles ) The devs want to keep ReactOS as bare, simple and compact as possible, to the point where it will not even have a bundled Internet browser or Media Player (both of which are included in most versions of Windows), so having something t...

Re: Suggestions for default programs in ROS

7. ReactOS MediaPlayer? See this thread . 6. ReactOS MovieMaker ? To my knowledge, this has not been discussed before, but I get the feeling that it'll get the same response that the Media Player idea got (EDIT: see this post , for example). 5. ReactOS Paint ? This has been discussed before (EDIT: ...

Re: media player

Also in this fight It's not a "fight", good sir, it is simply a discussion. The Internet is not serious business. As for the point about not everyone having access to the Internet or a slow connection, this is indeed a valid point, but I'd argue that if you had a machine with no Internet connection...

It's worth mentioning that I installed Windows Server 2008 recently and it didn't have any sort of media player bundled with it.

ReactOS is mainly written in C. A few parts (such as the current ReactOS Explorer Shell) are written in C++ but C is the preferred language for various reasons described in other threads. In fact, I believe that "explorer_new" (the not-yet-used replacement for the current ReactOS Explorer) is writte...
