Re: Programs That Require Validation

Speaking as a web developer I'd be overjoyed if IE doesn't find its way on ReactOS.

Re: SMP Support

I'm looking to run ReactOS in a cluster inside a vm over 4-8 cores. I'd simply use Wine but the particular application (folding at home) windows smp client requires to be able to install stuff as a service and Wine doesn't and can't by nature really support that. Also the native linux client is 64b...

Re: Spenden für USB Unterstützung ? Geht das ?

Ja, es ist möglich, speziell für USB-Unterstützung zu spenden. Bei der Spende kann explizit festgelegt werden, ob sie für einen bestimmten Bereich benutzt werden soll, oder in den gemeinsamen Spendentopf gehen soll. http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/USB_Stack http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.ph...

Re: ReactOS and Server 2003 version

Once ROS implements the Vista/Win2k8 APIs, I have no doubt that it'll begin to identify itself as NT 6.1 :)

Looks very nice, Yazou :)

I propose we make Yazou the new cover-designer :D

Re: ReactOS Mod Site

ReactOS Synthesis for those not in the know, is a project which aims to use ReactOS components to replace or even upgrade functionality in Windows (XP SP3 ATM). Why? Because it allows one to test ROS components within a perfectly* stable and debugged environment. Something like that is impossible w...

Re: ReactOS Mod Site

I was thinking that this project might more or less integrate with my ReactOS Synthesis project. ReactOS Synthesis for those not in the know, is a project which aims to use ReactOS components to replace or even upgrade functionality in Windows (XP SP3 ATM). The project could be expanded to accomodat...

Re: Long Filename support in ROS explorer(-new) ?

That's almost invisible defect. Comparing to others. :) Though when it hits it's akin to a brick wall: In our company we have some users creating nested folder structures with long path and filenames that can exceed the limit of 255 characters. These users complain that a doubleclick in windows exp...

Re: Long Filename support in ROS explorer(-new) ?

But that's user mode stuff, not the kernel, which is retarded. Grep in particular through base/ and dll/win32/ reveals many places where something like WCHAR szFullPath[MAX_PATH]; is proudly declared. Well, to me that's another case of being broken. If the OS's own components can not even support t...

Re: New reactos cd cover

Which is why having USB drivers is important. It would be neat to install ROS from an USB flash drive or run ROS from one. :idea: 8) First item will be possible with the new ROSE installer, second should be possible with the new USB stack. Both will be usable (more or less) somewhere in January nex...

Re: Long Filename support in ROS explorer(-new) ?

Though it will not be a problem to pass longer paths to ReactOS, they will be eventually passed from ReactOS to other programs. And what to do in that case? Either ReactOS should distinguish between "longer paths aware" and "legacy" software, or users should become responsible for crashes (which I ...

What to do with other software around?
If software assumes that paths are at most 255 chars in length, then having the ability to have longer paths would not pose a problem. As long as assumptions made my programs keep working.
