Re: Why is it taking so long?

Z98 Am I fighting with them? Am I fighting with Linux advocates on ReactOS’s forum? Yeah, It’s really the right place to do it. The only thing I did, and the only thing I intended to do, was to show why I find the current situation a bit odd, when Linux has gained so much support while there has be...

Re: Why not get some supporters from Linux?

And seems to me redundant to sell a whole new OS, when XP was perfectly fine. And could have just been tweaked a bit to match up to current standards with all its bugs fixed and further more. Know what I mean? But then again, where would the profit be in that? That's the most pathetic thing about c...

Re: modify exe setup

i have seen some youtubers run firefox 13 + on windows 2000 even google chrome. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1j7QZYOJUNw If you think it would work, try it, there's nothing bad with giving it a shot. But keep in mind that it is possible that it doesn't work, because of what I explained. Even if ...

Re: A future for ROS?

Well, MS will always get their money from somewhere. It is true that they are starting to pay less attention to the price tag of Windows, but at the same time they are charging 30% for any app sold on their app store. Important to note, it is not a criticism, it's just their current business model, ...

Re: Why is it taking so long?

mrugiero You also seem to think most Linux devs work for free. Okay, not most but, no doubt, many of them. But it doesn't really matter. The thing that matters is that there are a lot of them. Again - why? Why did such a project like Linux, with the goal of creating an open-source OS based on 20-ye...

Re: modify exe setup

i remember there was a exe tool to hack into it's setup files like firefox 28 it requires windows xp s2 to install there is or was a way to modify it's windows system requirements, like to windows 2000 sp4. I think that's compiler related, where a given version of Visual Studio officially supports ...

Re: linux virus

....... For the desktop I don't think Linux will grow more than 5%, 10% being ultra optimist, except in the case that actually Microsoft decides their desktop branch is not worth the trouble (very unlikely). In a way, when Microsoft came out with Win 8, they decided the desktop is not really worth ...

Re: Why not get some supporters from Linux?

How about at least asking linux if they'd donate anything to us? We got to get the ball rolling. This OS has been in dev stage for a very long time and still hasn't reached Beta. I've done all I can do to support the project, I advertised it on my website, and made a you tube video about it. My cha...

Re: Why is it taking so long?

Well....... You'd be surprised. ;) Linux also supports UPPERCASE ONLY LOGINS, if you happen to not have a lowercase-enabled terminal. Now how 70s is THAT? And you have no problem at all getting over acoustic couplers, I've done that already. User space. And AFAIR, most things on Linux and any UNIX-...

Re: linux virus

IMO, when an operating systems becomes more popular, it becomes a bigger target for vyrus writers and scams / cons. With Linux and Android becoming very popular, it makes it more worthwhile for vyrus writers to target them. :ugeek: I like to use eComStation http://www.ecomstation.com Since it is no...

Re: linux virus

I don't really see how viruses targetting Linux means it's becoming the next big thing. For a start, if it runs on all iterations of Linux (I'm not sure because I didn't want to watch the whole video; I prefer to actually read the text), it runs on Android, which is all the motivation you need to pr...

Re: Why is it taking so long?

Who knows, maybe some of the project members or some of its potential members will conclude, after reading my "shout in the darkness", that it's time to really start... Well, no, they don't have to start anything, because they have already been doing something within these 16 years. So, maybe in ye...

Re: Split(Fork) the shell from reactos

There are already more featured solutions for Windows 8. But many don't want "features," they want the familiar Windows interface. Many didn't want 8 in the first place, but that was the only supported drivers they had or their machine came with it. Yes, that's for sure. Most people who want other ...

Sure, but what thread would that be?
Probably a new one, in off topic or general discussion.
