Re: About ReactOS 0.4

Re: About ReactOS 0.4

Also keep in mind that without the help of more people we won't be able to proceed faster. That, I think, is quite the core of the problem: no great diligence and exceptional devotion of the few can make up for the lack of involvement of the many. At this stage of development, ReactOS does not have...

Re: Can ReactOS Cause Damage to Real Hardware?

It might sufficiently frustrate you so that you smash your machine? ;)

In earnest: for any practical purposes, ReactOS is harmless.

Re: About ReactOS 0.4

Dear Black_Fox, They use that as an all too convenient excuse. - Looking at it this way, why did the SCO story not damage Linux that much? And there was virtually no Linux market share in the early 2000s. The BSD folks are just a) generally more competent and knowledgeable about Unix system details ...

Re: About ReactOS 0.4

I firmly believe ReactOS' main issues are: 1. - aiming for the unattainable - whoever understands exponential growth will easily understand that some twenty developers CANNOT reach that what is done by the twenty thousand at Microsoft; and unless you understand THAT, ReactOS is going to be in alpha ...

Re: What happened to the meeting minutes?!!!!

Well, my dear ones, you understand of course the euphemism involved: "Where are the meeting minutes" is just another expression for "where the hell is the next release, it's been again nearly a year". ;)

Re: Microsoft plans to deliver SSH support

Hahaha.

Microsoft tried to show off just hooooow "much better" remoting is and that you do not "need" ssh and whatnot.

That is not without irony.

Re: My ReactOS Wishlist

There may be room for 15 flavours, but if this list continues like this, you will soon hit the "two flavours per developer" limit. This will never work. I have only one wish, which encompasses of course a lot of work: "Work with the common home and office applications." Not games, not engineering de...

Re: The New ReactOS Shop

In my opinion, you might consider selling also "geeky stuff" - like single-board computers running ReactOS pre-installed (with some open source apps). ;)

Re: Can I give away copies of ReactOS?

Well... For all I am aware, you may do whatever you want as long as the trademark owners allow it. You can stick the Mercedes sign to a trabant, if the appropriate consent has been acquired. There is nothing to stop a trademark owner to allow someone some specific usage. The trick with ReactOS is ma...

Re: Connect to ROS server via Linux?

I've actually tried that, specifically, I tested http://www.kpym.com/2/kpym/index.htm as well as http://www.freesshd.com/ and a few others. Nothing ever worked. If you try something like that, I would be very grateful if you could share your results. Another possibility, which - if I recall correctl...

European VALS project - deadline 1st April

Hi everybody! As Google had refused ReactOS' application for the GSoC in a plain ridiculous manner, I would like to mention here that Haiku OS apparantly applying at a European project equivalent to the GSoC. The deadline is 1st April. I saw this here: https://www.haiku-os.org/news/2015-03-15_haiku_...

Donations from Amazon?

I just was reading a discussion with regard to Haiku and someone recommended this link: http://smile.amazon.com/ Apparently the idea seems to be that from the purchases at Amazon, a very small amount of 0.5% of your purchase is donated to an organisation of your choice. The prices remain the same. I...

Re: Support for older computers

Define "older". Once ReactOS reaches 1.0, what you are using right now will be "older". "Old" hardware is a moving target. There is a limit somewhere. The thing is: you can write crappy code with little functionality and consume an arbitrarily large amount of memory. But the reverse is not true: you...
