So they still are interested in ReactOS? :shock: Considering that I haven't seen any commit messages by them in the last months I hadn't thought that, but it's very nice to know they are still around :)

Re: Monstera: new branch

You want to argue about the coding "logic," and that is exactly what I am talking about - compilers often change the logic. I guess you missed what I said above about compilers converting integers to string and forcing you to convert back, and adding many unnecessary cycles, Than that's either a pr...

Re: Storage Management, is there any plan?

Again, I was saying OS emulated as you keep missing. So JBOD-like, not the true thing. Again, you misunderstand me. I was using the terms symbolically, not literally. I was talking about EMULATION at the OS level of using reparse points to hide the fact of separate volumes - something XP does. That...

Re: Storage Management, is there any plan?

No, single registry entry will suffice for a mount point even in a FAT FS, with different semantics though. You know that kernel does not use the drive letters internally, they still remain because programmers of Windows ME applications wanted so. I mean being able to fake at JBOD/RAID stuff using ...

Re: Monstera: new branch

Now, the disadvantage of making anything in assembly would be portability. It would be nice if ROS could run on other platforms, including good ones which were orphaned (maybe Itanium or certain Power PC), and ones that are leading platforms in other areas (ARM, for instance). But still, it would b...

Re: Storage Management, is there any plan?

One exception too: ReactOS' own defragmenter- it can use the fixed FAT32 defragmention funcions. That is what I was suggesting. I don't know if there is any software or Windows functions that depend on that API being broken as it is. If there is, a private new one could be added. Even then one coul...

Re: idea - two partitions to reactos

Actually, all you have to do is create such a partition yourself and then enter the registry to find the default references and change them to your custom folders on your own drive. Using the registry for this is not a good idea (TM). See here . You should use Explorer's functionality to move the s...

Re: Fireball... What are you 3 up too, and whats this cloud

Thanks to Alex' commit message here for SAC/EMS (which sounds promising as well) a Google search found this . Although I'm rather sceptical regarding cloud services it sounds promising. :) Regards, Sven @Fireball: On the contact page the E-Mail address seems to be written incorrectly. Currently it's...

Re: Xen as Host for Reactos.

Qubes uses QEMU-KVM and VNC protocol to present Unprivileged Domain's userland. By default four Xen userland domains are defined, each having specific settings for its purpose, plus Dom0 and Network Domain(Yes, a seperate VM concerns for networking). It is based based on Fedora . While supporting W...

Re: Xen as Host for Reactos?

You need to get your terms right. Paravirtualisation has nothing to do with emulation of a different ISA, but with adding new instructions to the same ISA which allows a improved communication between the guest and the host and thus results in better performance. Though paravirtualisation could be u...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

I am not sure who originally claimed that ARMv6 lacks synchronization primitives to support ReactOS. I, too, would like to know exactly what they are talking about. I've now found the part I was remembering. It's the first paragraph of the Booting section . This text is only talking about ARMv4 and...

Re: ARM MMU Support For ReactOS

1. There are ARM CPUs which don't have a MMU Yeah, sure, like there are some Pentium processors that don't support SSE , etc. I don't think that one can compare the lack of a MMU to the lack of a SIMD instruction set. The former normally means that you can only run more restricted/adjusted versions...
