Re: Open source MacOS

I like the Project Status page at DarlingHQ.org. The page gives first-time visitors a quick look at Darling's current capabilities. The page's screen shots illustrated Darling's primitive state very effectively. I believe the Project Status page helps newcomers form realistic expectations of the pr...

Re: Open source MacOS

Darwin is macos + wine. In wine there are more fix by ReactOS develover. Darwin(or darlinghq) works thanks to the work of developers ReactOS :D ¿? Darwin is a bare bones OS, it's a bit more than the XNU kernel. It's the base OS behind the real Mac OSX. Darling is a runtime, and a separate project, ...

Re: Open source MacOS

Honestly the best and closest thing to Mac OS that is free (although it's not based in BSD but in Linux) is Pear. You can visit there website, which is: http://pearlinux.fr/ On a sidenote, it seems that they were "bought out" by someone else, however a quick Google search will give you the ISOs and...

Re: Open source MacOS

According to the website: Darling is a translation layer that allows you to run unmodified OS X binaries on Linux. In its nature, it is similar to the well-known Wine project. I don't know much about BSD, but I thought it was completely separate from OS/X and Linux. They are completely separate, bu...

Re: Some thoughts

If that's the case, the problem is they are being too strict with the license requirement, not that ReactOS uses GPL in some pieces of their code.
I can understand they require LGPL in the pieces you are to link to, but charmap.exe and mspaint.exe? Who links to them? They are not even libraries.

Re: Thorium (ROS distribution) on kickstarter

1) Yes, I know what the stated goal is. What we don't know is how the administration, logistics and financial issues are dealt with. One should also be careful explicitly saying ROS IS Thorium (unless one absolutely is certain it's like that in all - including the legal - senses, of course). For in...

The one I have at hand, a 486SX. I've got others, but they are stored in the garage and are hard to access, so I can't really check what they were. I recall one 486, but I don't know if DX or SX.

Re: Freewin95

I might be mistaking, but wasn't Win 3.1 running quite good on/in DOSBox? It does, I tried it a few years ago. Still, isn't quite the same thing as having an open source implementation. I wouldn't work on that, but if someone is interested, he is free to give it a shot. On another subject, if one c...

Re: Thorium (ROS distribution) on kickstarter

Now, why would people interested in free as in beer freedom be inclined to open their wallets to support a project? To them, what's the distinction between donating to fund development and just buying the end product? True. Actually, they'd probably prefer to pay for the end product because, hey, i...

Re: ReactOS Hook Up version idea

Just a detail. If Users is in a different partition (actually, in XP it's Documments and Settings), there's no need for the Windows partition to be FAT32, only Users one, as that's what would be shared with ReactOS.

Re: ReactOS and gog.com... a marriage in heaven?

Errrm, I don't want to be a party pooper (actually, I voted already), but there are a few things. First, ReactOS is not, and will not be in any near future, in a production state. For the same reason supporting Linux is hard (not actually the fragmentation, as GOG runs games on Winewrapper for Windo...

Re:

I'm not in favor of the idea, either. Just pointing out it is that idea the one being discussed here.
