Re: Aspects of Vista/7/8/10 that should NOT be ported to React

That is not a compatibility issue. That is purely a consequence of Windows license agreement, which you agreed to if you use Windows.

Re: 56 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

That does not occur if you call copy from cmd.exe, PowerShell, or using API. Only happens if you call it from explorer.

Re: WPF, WinForms and WinUI now OpenSource

Regarding whether of not the recently open sourced WPF, Windows Forms, and Windows UI XAML Library (WinUI) are helpful to the ReactOS project: If you think it might be, then take a closer look at it and post back here with your findings. Yes, because it would enable us rewrite the shell in Windows ...

Re: WPF, WinForms and WinUI now OpenSource

FreeDOS also provides binary compatibility. That does not preclude an API call for an application to determine whether it is running on ReactOS or Windows; nor does it preclude an environment variable check (BEHAVE_LIKE_WINDOWS in my proposal) to quickly set that system-wide for processes started fr...

Re: WPF, WinForms and WinUI now OpenSource

FreeDOS just happens to implement 86-DOS API with extensions (MS-DOS also implements that; there is no one DOS). They also have a looser compatibility target, for example, do not look for matching application filenames as long as applications, drivers and TSRs run correctly.

Re: WPF, WinForms and WinUI now OpenSource

Too late, we already use the open-sourced BUT CORE COMPONENTS!! Then, no new code from open-sourced Windows components until MS open sources all the Windows. why should we NOT accept everything they throw at us? To avoid defamatory saying "ReactOS is Windows clone". Otherwise, at the time they open...

Re: WPF, WinForms and WinUI now OpenSource

Will the code opened by Microsoft be used in ReactOS in the future?
I preserve my previous thought on this. Until they open source all the Windows, no open-sourced Windows component code should be accepted into ReactOS codebase.

Re: WPF, WinForms and WinUI now OpenSource

They are gradually open sourcing parts of Windows. One day, all of them will be open source.

Re: WPF, WinForms and WinUI now OpenSource

Next step would have been open-sourcing cmd.exe, Windows Explorer and shell libraries.

Thrown out of JIRA or malfunction?

I cannot log in nor even look at issues. I first get asked for captcha, then it also gets refused. If it was related to issue review proposal by me, it is too late - I made no changes to issues after strong opposition from developers.
