Re: Home page feedback / comments

We dislike symptons. Explaining again and yet again about beeing alpha for instance. And like the dimmed grey link in a small font to our Wiki, it's true, there's a hint of beeing alpha ("They're talking about ReactOS 0.4.7 (even if we're just Alpha)"). But let's be honest: Who knows its definition?...

True.

And your question (as well as your shown interest in porting an Unix application) is very honourable.

Re: secure-delete on ReactOS

thc-secure-delete by gordonrs is an Unix (!) and not a MS Windows application... Try https://eraser.heidi.ie/ . Its source code is released under GNU General Public License and it is still developed.

Re: secure-delete on ReactOS

Why should ReactOS port it? It would absorb scarce resources of our developers...

Re: Massive Lücke in Intel-CPUs erfordert umfassende Patches

Bei Heise Online hat Christof Windeck den Umgang der Hersteller rund um die tiefgreifenden Sicherheitslücken in seinem Kommentar zu Meldown und Spectre als "Chaos statt Kundendienst" und "Vertrauensbruch" kritisiert: Im Zweifel liege die Loyalität der großen IT-Firmen vor allem bei sich selbst.

Re: ReactOS schon für Spiele (F1 Codemasters) geeignet?

Wie weit DirectX aktuell in ReactOS gediehen ist, ist mir de facto leider unbekannt. Solange Du Dich bei F1 (2011) mit DirectX 9.0c begnügst (und auf den wohl vorhandenen DirectX 11-Modus verzichtest), sollte die Wartezeit "etwas" kürzer werden. Und "etwas" ist wahrscheinlich ziemlich relativ. Viell...

Am 8. November 2017 wurde unter viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16733&p=128360&hilit=directx#p128360 der Wunsch geäußert, ReactOS möge in der künftigen Version 0.5 doch DirectX 9.0c - und zwar fehlerfrei - unterstützen, um alte Spiele zocken zu können. ReactOS ist noch zu sehr im Alpha-Stadium und sehr, sehr un...

Re: EPIC WIN!

Perhaps we should better move all application compatibilities in terms of the "Windows Vista SP2 (VISTASP2) and Windows 7 (WIN7RTM) compability mode" to own topics (e.g. Epic Win Compability Mode Win Vista and Epic Win Compability Mode Win 7" or at least to viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16859#p129142 ?

Re: Can development focus be switched from XP to Windows 10?

About Windows 10 being "junky" - I'm not thrilled with their UI choices myself. I much preferred Windows 2000 and 7 over all the others. But that's just the outer layer. The internals are far more important, and from that perspective Windows 10 is arguably the best thing MS has made yet. Almost not...

Re: How many of you still use Windows XP?

Keep in mind that the Microsoft Windows XP Point of Sale edition is STILL SUPPORTED. And for such purposes, there is nothing wrong with that. Well, but probably no one of us is using Windows XP POS... (which is as far as I know supported until 2019). And our normal Windows XP is not anymore support...

Compared to following NT-based Operating Systems like my Win 7: no. XP is an NT based o/s. Despite "following" and "my" I apologize for beeing unclear. As a former user of Win 98 SE and Win XP I am aware of its Kernel - and its history of beeing the first broad public OS with NT. Well, back in thos...

Re: How many of you still use Windows XP?

The more time passes by, the more secure it becomes (viruses crash instead of doing damage). I disagree. Personally Windows XP was one of the most stable OS from Microsoft and I really liked it. Wish that MS could continue supporting Windows XP in some way but things come to an end some day. Such i...
