Re: Wayland gives ReactOS new life?

A ReactOS fork may make use of it, but standard build uses ReactOS Explorer as its GUI. I think what he's trying to say is that as more people dislike newer Linux distros because of their GUI, more might try ROS. So ruining a non-Windows alternative to Windows might drive more to want to try an ope...

Re: I wondering

Same here. I either see 'we' or no subject noun at all. In just a quick scan, I see no "I" anywhere.

Re: Possibilities For NTVDM and other Sub-Systems

I never said it did, so I was misunderstood. Most here know I'm a regular fixture. Like I said, I know nothing about the kernel internals of ROS (and Windows) or Linux either one. There is NO comparison there, just a statement of fact, as a standalone statement that I don't know about either one. Al...

Re: Ext JS to React blog series

No, this is not ReactJS. And if we go down that road, then will the Fine Brothers be able to claim they are connected to us next? ;)

Re: updates integration

Why would you need an open source OS for Windows? Just run Windows. But I get what you mean, an open source Windows replacement. We are not there yet, but getting there. 1. You could manually copy over files. In that case, you'd need another OS. There is no automated upgrade system, yet. 2. You prob...

Re: Frederic Laloux "Reinventing Organizations" apply in ReactOS organization?

But from what you propose, the "cure" is worse than the "disease," IMHO.

I see nothing constructive in leaving this thread open.

Re: Target Kernel

A lot of the more common responses to this question can basically be summed up as "Remember how Duke Nukem Forever was in development hell for 15 fricking years because the designers kept adding more shit, then scrapping it all and starting over from the beginning? Like that time in June 1998 when ...

Re: Trying to get companies to support ReactOS

However, that said, the older drivers are no longer being made, and there is newer hardware without 2003 drivers.

And yes, if XP/2003 has it and we don't, in most cases, the devs will eventually write them if possible.

Re: Anonymous contributions apply in ReactOS project?

Let me share a parallel example for clarity, and in agreement with what Thomas said. I'm not hijacking, just using analogy. A common problem is fake schools, AKA diploma mills. Those are bad enough, but then some go through the trouble of deceiving by also creating fake accreditation boards. When th...

Would you like a dirty pull request? But even worse, would you like to see a dirty one you don't even know is dirty?

I find regulations like these concerning, and I also find the non-civil attitude towards those at this forum who look at the larger picture of possible government collusion and misconduct to be concerning. If someone believes something underhanded is happening, I see it as their civil responsibility...

Re: Forks contributions back to ReactOS?

The Fusion above, I can't tell what was done and they have no pages discussing it. Besides, it would be incompatible as they use various forms of Pascal and Basic as well.

Re: Please add the modified Lautus-theme of GreenteaOS

There are 404's with most of their links. Too bad, as I was pulling for the fork to work.
