Re: The Linux Unified Kernel

Then you have bad memories.

At that time there was hot discussions on Reactos lists and BTW if you have any doubts the source is still available.
Give it a try.

Re: The Linux Unified Kernel

Hi, WDM was working in old Reactos ntoskrnl. For example it was possible to use the NTFS.sys from Microsoft Windows XP with Reactos 0.26. http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive/Preview.pm Last time I tried with Reactos (current 0.3.10) it failed and I think this situation exists since Reactos ...

Re: Mouse Problem

Hi, Probably the best person to reply here is Fireball. I did some tests as the mere user I am and my understanding here is that the answer is not straight at all. First there are several USB API in Windows, second there are several driver frameworks. What adds to the complexity is additional driver...

Re: Organisation of non-developers?

One thing difficult to explain to any organization will be the very purpose of Reactos which is to write an open source version of Windows when it's already possible for everybody to access the Windows source code (Windows server 2003) since 3 years on the condition to not sell a software derived fr...

Re: for Aleksey - ARWINSS

Hi all, @Vic: The world is changing ever and ever. Windows 3.5 had a graphic kernel in user land then Windows 4 put it in the kernel. Many people claimed it was a mistake. Windows 4 was supposed to be a rock solid OS but at the end there was many Service packs in NT4, then in 2K then in XP then in V...

Re: Updating Windows XP until ReactOS...

As I said previously there is nothing new in applying changes to a running system: It's done since years even in Windows systems. The reason for reboot is related to security. If you want some links: - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/897341 (Windows) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ksplice (most of o...

>> Also, an update system that somehow does not require a restart is still an area of CS research. No one knows how to pull it off in a production system without risking destabilizing it, and until someone figures it out, you'll have to reboot for certain types of updates.

Re: NTFS proof of concept

Hi all, I found this file searcher for NTFS: http://code.google.com/p/fastfind/ This application software works on Windows XP, it is based on NTFS-3G but it doesn't use FUSE . It uses NTFS-3G as a DLL. I tried it under last Reactos 0.3.10 but the problem as usual is that the *new* kernel doesn't det...

Re: for Aleksey - ARWINSS

Hi, I don't care for Linux or Windows, but Vic you are not fair to Linux: The kernel v2.2 was quite similar to Windows 2000 in functionalities to the point big corporation considered its use as a Win2K replacement. Kernel V2.2 started in 1999. IBM made a bold statement that it was supporting Linux r...

Re: for Aleksey - ARWINSS

Hi, I am not interested in Win32 API but ARWINSS as a project decision seems to me to be a sensible step to isolate some Reactos components from each other. I can't understand how people can at the same time argue that the each Reactos subsystem is too buggy, that no progress can be made because of ...
