Re: reactos priority? or mess?

LMH1, in its current state ReactOS targets Windows XP 32bit (NT kernel version 5.1) respectively Windows Server 2003 (Nt kernel 5.2). Do you truly expect the security standards of Win 10 (internally marked as NT kernel 6.4) which was approximately published 14 years later? ... ( https://en.wikipedia...

Re: reactos priority? or mess?

Haiku is inspired by BeOS with "[...] about 1.5 million lines of code. Actually an incredibly small codebase, compared to, say, the 30+ million lines of code in Windows NT"( https://birdhouse.org/beos/bible/bos/ch_future1.html ; 1999). The coding of ReactOS seems to be a bit more challenging... Than...

Re: reactos priority? or mess?

LMH1, I understand your impatience. But with just two paid developers we should lower our expectations. Compared to Windows, Linux and BSD it is a leisure project. A wonderful and quit succesful one considering the complexity of developing a binary-compatible Open-Source "Windows". As a result it is...

ReactOS is alpha (not even beta) and thus very incomplete & unfinished - Read also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_ ... ycle#Alpha

Ich nehme an, dass er ganz allgemein über Hintertüren in Software - wie eben auch ReactOS - besorgt ist. Siehe aktuell zum Beispiel " Backdoors in Video-Encodern auf Huawei-Chips entdeckt - Ursprung unbekannt " bei Heise Online. Somit ist die Frage generell schon berechtigt, auch wenn sie die Gefühl...

Re: REACTOS auf Lenovo G50-45

Dann entschuldige ich mich ausdrücklich bei Dir, da Du Dir des Alpha-Stadiums bewusst gewesen bist. Mein Eindruck ist, dass es etliche Seitenbesucher im Gegensatz zu Dir leider nicht sind. Hoffen wir, dass es mittelfristig häufiger vergleichbare Berichte Victor Perevertkin hired full-time to work on...

Re: REACTOS auf Lenovo G50-45

Gerade eine Installation auf einem "Produktiv-System" wird von unseren Entwicklern explizit noch nicht empfohlen, da es sich bei ReactOS weiterhin nur um ein Betriebssystem im alpha-Stadium handelt. Siehe Download-Seite unter "How to choose?" im rot markierten Satz: "If you wish to install ReactOS o...

Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

Like the not really opensource-project called MS Shared Source Initiative.

Sorry for any misunderstandings. I'm not a native speaker.

Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

If one cannot create a bicycle, one shouldn't try to create a Boeing... Let's assume that our developers are probably no masochists and that they know best where to start. Windows Vista is based on Server 2003, and 7 is based on Vista. But once you get to Windows 8, Microsoft had to really slim down...

Auch wenn es klüger ist, zum Beispiel im KRITIS-Spektrum statt auf Closed Souce lieber auf quelloffene Alternativen zu setzen, gilt zumindest für mich: Mein Vertrauen in "Windows, Linux oder Android" fällt im Vergleich zur "Expertise" von "Michael Mannheimer" weit höher aus!

Re: Two decades later...what's the point?

And let's not forget the ReactOS FAQ with answers to frequently asked questions such as

- Why ReactOS? Why clone Microsoft Windows™?
- Why don't you help develop Wine/Linux instead?
- Why is ReactOS development so slow?

Again: Please read our ReactOS FAQ.

Re: Two decades later...what's the point?

Another answer would be that WINE benefits from ReactOS, too. You could check for instance names as Martin Fuchs or Can Taşan (Compare https://wiki.winehq.org/Who%27s_Who). Not to mention unknown patches or hints to other projects and their developers.

Re: exFAT filesystem and specifications to be open-sourced by Microsoft

No, it does only help Linux. "No solution is Microsoft's release for other open source operating systems, such as the BSD family or ReactOS. The Linux patent pool of the Open Invention Network is just there to protect Linux and its developers from patent claimants' claims. This is not true for other...
