Re: Driver loader for bypassing Windows x64 Driver Signature Enforcement

Not needed, as ReactOS is open source, you will already be able to disable signature checks. Signature check is not part of API contract, it is part of the security model.

This would leave just the wiki for the ReactOS org itself to monitor, right? (I exclude the forum because one cannot upload content here, just post links.)
The forum will also need something like Turnitin or Copyscape.

but it looks like some people actually want to enforce this kind of thing.
Yes, they want to censor us but cannot call it censorship because it is "bad". They use a different name as a disguise. In this case, upload filters. Copyright itself had been a form of censorship when it first originated.

Re: [FANTASY] is possible ReactOS on x86_64 smartphones?

Are you aware that Android on x86 also boots using UEFI? These devices are viable targets for ReactOS mobile too.

Re: Upload filters

Upload filters will unfortunately hurt us. We already have necessary background checks to avoid copyright infringements, yet the proposal does not have safe harbour provisions requiring a low false negative, high false positive upload filter (even though it does not mention the words "upload filter"...

Re: Upload filters

Newcoming developers will need to fight "copyright" filters. It is related to developers in that regard.

Upload filters

Proposed EU copyright directive requires automated upload filters (something like YouTube ContentID) and this can cause a sharp decrease in contributions. It will also make difficult for newcomers as a significant contribution will be required for each commit, because copyright filter is costly to r...

Re: 57 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

WSL adds Linux userland to Windows NT kernel. It is an OS personality like Win32.
ENIW would double our userbase.

Re: 60 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS

59. You are expecting me to explain a statement on artistic impression of logo in objective facts. 60. Windows is proprietary and Linux is under GPL2. To avoid potential intellectual property issues, Microsoft staff had to reverse engineer Linux system calls to implement WSL. We will not have to rev...

Re: 60 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

It does to me. It is related to ENIW. Do you not want ENIW (backwards Wine) implemented on ReactOS?
ENIW would bring you an additional userland. UROP(Unified ReactOS Platform) would be the third.

60 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS

58: There is a famous incident happened to Windows activation servers. As usual, Windows 10 system software phoned home to ask whether the software is genuine or counterfeit and assumed counterfeit as he got no reply. https://www.windowscentral.com/windows-10s-activation-servers-suffer-issue-causing...

60th specific reason for wanting ReactOS:

58. ReactOS will not suddenly deactivate like Windows does just because it missed a phone home. 59. Atom looks cooler than flat-design windows. 60. Unlike Microsoft, ReactOS team will not have to reverse engineer Linux to implement WSL-like functionality. Instead, they will be able to use Linux sour...
