Re: Alternativeto - ReactOS

I see it has been liked 6 times already (and I liked it, too)... so it is beating Vista, with only 1 "like". ;)

Re: The Linux Unified Kernel

@ rembrandt:

Thank you for the driverpacks thing! I had no idea such a repository existed...

Maybe this should just be mentioned somewhere in an easily visible manner?

Re: The Linux Unified Kernel

Maybe I am wrong, but is this whole driver topic not maybe a bit "over-valued"? - I mean, as opposed to Linux, the drivers ALREADY EXIST. They are just not open-source... but then again, do they have to be? - Like, fine, the drivers are not open source, so what? - If they can be somehow supplied, ma...

Re: Organisation of non-developers?

YIPPIE! HERE is just exactly the type of university we need: http://derstandard.at/1259280712919/Universitaet-Erlangen-Nuernberg-erforscht-Open-Source This is a German press article stating that the Friechrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany is the first university in Germany to...

Re: 1.0.0 ETA

I think Windows can go down quite a lot - there existed such a thing as "Windows XP Embedded", see here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_XP_editions#Windows_XP_Embedded Apparently, this thing could go down to 32 MB. Even if you say that maybe ReactOS will need, say, 60 or so with the elementary...

Re: 1.0.0 ETA

HAHAHA!... :D I am sorry, I know that the core issues of this dispute are quite important and deserve a discussion, but the way in which it is lead, I cannot stop awfully laughing about it! :D

Re: Organisation of non-developers?

Maybe we could tell how much financing we get in any given year? That would give anyone interested in this project a rough overview, and would not be particularly labour-intensive for the developers. Because if a sponsor compares "money invested" vs. "results achieved", he himself can figure out whe...

Re: A question about raw console mode in ReactOS

Maybe it should be mentioned that you CAN have DOS, just it has nothing to do with ReactOS: you can actually use the Dosbox emulator (if it is stable enough).

Re: Organisation of non-developers?

Allright, just for the general information: I am about to send a letter to a professor of the IT department of the technical university in my city. I am going to ask him in it whether they would be interested in ReactOS (as a university, or maybe he knows students who would be interested) and whethe...

Re: Organisation of non-developers?

Well done. So I assume things are clarified with the developers and ReactOS wishes to expand. That being clear, we can proceed. I would not mind a mailing list, but... after all, is that much different to a forum thread?? - Other than that, yes, I think a mailing list would be very reasonable. I wil...

As to developers, c'mon, it IS possible, I mean just look at this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KolibriOS http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MenuetOS I tested them a year or two ago, was impressive. Apparently, even the dark arts of assembler are not quite lost generally - as another example: http://board...

Re: Organisation of non-developers?

As to accounting: Well, one day, if things have to be serious with this accounting thing, you will pretty much publish a balance sheet according to any established set of international standards, together with a report. For the time being, though, I propose the following scheme: "mini-steps", implem...

Re: Organisation of non-developers?

Dear Ragnar_Darude & Witch, No problem, it does not have to be tomorrow. Indeed, maybe it is much wiser to have Alexey there before starting any serious discussion. My scepticism as to "Morpheus" is that for all I know he may be the FSB, CIA or whoever else. You know... "helping" a (half-Russian) pr...
