Sorry, misunderstood of myself, cause I have read too quickly (and because I'm not native English speaker too).
Hey, it happens. I might have been too harsh.

Re: ReactOS involving in 'GSoC' like event concerning documentation?

I assume this is only for interns. There is nothing stopping the rest of us from already doing this.

Re: Vista+ functions non visible to apps that needs them

I think this is being worked on. They want to make the compatibility engine to where it can selectively use the new APIs. Not sure of the details. I guess the goal would be to right click on a newer app, go to properties, and manually add in the compatibility section (that likely writes to the regis...

Re: Should I make a Pinball game for ReactOS?

Yes, Hermes, the top link you posted was why I said what I did. They could, but it was a foreign code. There were math errors that did not surface using x32 code but did using amd64 code. It would require a comprehensive rewrite to eliminate all those. I think you missed what he asked. He meant leav...

Re: ReactOS involving in 'GSoC' like event concerning documentation?

No, that's a separate program. He is talking about a new program SIMILAR to GSOC, but it is ONLY for documentation.

Re: Should I make a Pinball game for ReactOS?

On Microsoft removing Pinball, a couple of things stand out on that. I don't see why they felt the need to attempt to rewrite it. It was already 32-bit and would run as-is under x64. The other thing is that it sounds like it had sloppy code to begin with. If I were them, I'd have sent the rewrite ba...

If you want a colon :, try holding Shift and hitting a semicolon ;.

Re: Language C

Generally, your lower level languages are needed for the kernel, but all the stuff you mentioned could be acceptable for user mode stuff, particularly end user apps.

Re: Language C

Well, the assembly in the kernel is to be not just efficient, but exact, as you are dealing with specific locations, and sometimes you cannot leave it to chance which opcodes are used. C would take more fiddling, but can be done (or use some inline assembly with it). Portability is not an option whe...

Re: Language C

Back to the original question, it is written mostly in C, with some things like parts of the shell that work with com objects written in C++, and parts of the kernel written in assembly.

Re: Bugs as development target?

That's sort of how I see it. If they truly are bugs, then fix them and provide a compatibility option. But if they are simply quirks or undocumented features, then by all means keep them as close to Windows as possible.

Re: Blue Screen crash on VirtualBox

I'd also try one of the latest "nightly" builds. Also, since you reopened a thread someone else started, I'd double-check to see if the BSOD codes are the same. Just because you have a blue screen, it doesn't mean you are both having the same error. It is better to start your own thread and not reop...

CPU emulation strategies

From what I understand, there are 4 emulation strategies. 1. Thunking, CPU switching tricks, etc. This is to trick a similar CPU into running it anyway. This is pretty much what x86 Windows does to a degree from what I understand. 2. Interpretation. This is when each instruction is converted to equi...
