Re: 16-bit Windows Program Support

Well... then what you TRULY need is: 1. - "support for the most common Win16-installers" - which can be badly hacked together, because you do not need to support "EVERY" Win16-Program; or: 2. - "support un-archiving". Mostly, those "installers" were nothing but a sort of "unzip". Indeed, file-roller...

How to pulverize funding

I just read a very interesting article by Andrew Tanenbaum: http://cacm.acm.org/magazines/2016/3/198874-lessons-learned-from-30-years-of-minix/fulltext I think that article can be called "how to pulverize funding", because for all I read, he got SIX AND A HALF MILLION USD and did NOT manage to produ...

SSH & Telnet

Hi everybody! Recently, there was a request that I re-test a Windows SSH server. Well, that exact program seemed to be no longer available (on a permanent basis anyway), so I retested with FreeSSHd and Kpym. Neither worked, nor did the Telnet component of FreeSSHd. What happens is basically this: yo...

Re: 16-bit Windows Program Support

Ahemmm... on a related note: does anything of Qemu / Virtualbox / DOSBOX run on ReactOS "well enough"? :) Because if it does, one can also emulate stuff. Personally... I don't care about the 16-bit-stuff. One has to make somewhere a "cut". A "cut" for a more and more irrelevant platform looks pretty...

Re: Mascot for ReactOS

What's wrong with their current "Helium atom"? - I mean, it befits the project perfectly - it reminds of nuclear fusion, which would be incredibly useful, but whenever one asks "is it done?" one gets the answer "not yet"... :P :D

Re: ReactOS donating how fast can developing of reactos be?

Well, you can: - neither measure "speed" of development - and while there may be resistance from the developers, the most obvious "speed" measure is the "release count", as most people assume "decent" release cycles; - nor can you directly translate "speed to money". So while in general, money WILL ...

Remote Shell - Working with Netcat!

Hi everybody, Congratulations to the team for the new release. (I recommend to re-check whether everything in the "Application Manager" works, as for me on VirtualBox at least, Python 3 and both Operas definitely did NOT work, and I really had a TOUGH time getting ANYTHING from an FTP-server - in th...

Re: Why?

IMHO, it would have been better to release the new website along with 0.4.0. From a user perspective, I went here, and I thought, "WOW. They DID IT!" - And then... 0.3.17.

Re: An idea of me

I said this to accerelate our development. Now the issue is, you really have to demonstrate the translation of "money" into - and here's the rub: - "tangible" results. I, too, recommend 0.4.0 before asking for further money. (ReactOS' position is admittedly not an easy one: "hunting bugs" and fumbl...

Re: Graph of Death

The sole logical conclusion possible from the above is: "There are more issues being opened every day than there are issues being closed." In particular, what you CANNOT conclude from the above is: "More problems appear every day than there are issues being resolved." - That would be tantamount to a...
