Yes, windows PE also does not, and 64-bit windows as well. But 16-bit compatibility is a part of Windows' functionality (optional though).

The both are not native applications :-)

Native applications though can run without win32k and any other subsystem.

By the way, will it be some native application support in Reactos?


Yet another question: is there any command line interpreter designed as an NT's native application?

I thought ReactOS will implement all Wine's functionality in the future (who did say here that ROS will have all Wine's dlls?). I have a good small win-16 3D program Lathe and I also know place on the net where there are many good progs packed with a Win-16 self-extracting archive (the creators thou...

Linux kernel without GNU is useful and it used in embeeded systems etc. Windows NT I never heared to be used without sybsystem. One of the reasons is that Linux kernel contains filesystem code while NT kernel does not.

This is a pity! Really. Why not? ROS will be less Windows-compatible than UNIX?

Re: Obsolete work?

ReactOS focuses on implementing of Win32/64 APIs. Have you ever run reactos? What you say is completely wrong. WINE focuses on implementing of Win32/64 APIs Reactos focuses on creating a brand new os that will work in the same way and look like windows Wine has not all APIs needed for all applicati...

Linux can boot without bash. It even can boot without GNU if a conmpatible replacement provided.

Obsolete work?

ReactOS focuses on implementing of Win32/64 APIs. But in fact the future is in behind UNIX architecture. Indeed, even Windows becomes more close to UNIX. Vista provides a UNIX-like shell with commands like "ls" instead of "dir", it borrows many features from MacOS X and Linux. Windows 8 will have a ...

What we can get from there? Or this is a standard theme for KDE?

The same reason MS didn't call Win95 DOS/Shell. It wouldn't be accurate.
Because Windows was the name of the shell even before Windows 95 release. By this logic we should call ReactOS "Wine 2007".

Probably it connects to HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) which, yes, provides its own APIs.

Bash is a part of GNU, as well as other utilities.

Just the same here: cmd.exe or whatever name it has here is just a part of FreeDOS (probably modifyed to suit NT architecture). The same with format and other utils. Nobody says ReactOS should have cmd.exe as part of its name.
