Re: Google Sommer of Code 2013

but would be better to use a second stage bootloader - easier to develop, but HD2 is indestructible when it comes to firmware updates. But we wouldn't need to implement UEFI support for that. Just support for the normal bootloader that the HD2 uses (or alternatively clk and magldr). How far has the...

Re: Winulator

Hmm. I've just read that Google provides a tool for recompiling Java code into a Dalvik-friendly format for Android. Performance would probably suck unless you have a very powerful processor in your phone, but it's at least possible that you could play AoE in jDosbox on Android. Ehm... you do know ...

Re: Google Sommer of Code 2013

EFI/UEFI support would be nice as far as i see winRT works on hd2 because of that but that was already planed For the HD2 basically a "UEFI emulator" had to be written, because Windows RT only supports booting through UEFI and as the source of that boot loader is not freely available the underlying...

That the HD2 can even run Windows RT is in my opinion the more impressive thing (though I have to admit, since Windows Phone 8 is based on NT as well it was only a matter of time... :mrgreen: ).

There is an Ext3 for Windows :?: :shock:
See here. It's mainly an Ext2 driver, but it supports reading and writing Ext3 as well though there won't be any journal support (it basically treats the Ext3 partition as an Ext2 one).

No, you are wrong. UEFI is older than Windows 8 and Windows Vista and 7 are compatible with UEFI boot. For example my father has a UEFI based mainboard which is from aronud 2011.

Please note that mainboard manufacturers are free to implement methods to import custom keys. I don't know how many mainboards support this though...

Re: Using linux drivers in reactos !

But the kernels are completely different, more so then trying use technique with BSD. It's like trying to stick a car engine in a locomotive. The DDEKit was originally developed for L4 and it also has been ported for Minix. Both are microkernel operating systems that differ greatly from Linux/BSD/U...

Re: Using linux drivers in reactos !

It would not be completely ported from scratch. The DDEKit consists of two parts: an environment for the drivers and the abstraction layer for the underlying operating system. The former already exists for Linux 2.6 in the various DDE implementations (e.g. the L4 one from TU Dresden) while the latte...

Ah! Nice :)
That could solve that problem as well. It's still not trivial, but it seems that the necessary tools are there :)

Meine Bedenken: wenn ReactOS sich so verhält wie Windows kann es sicherlich ziemlich zickig werden wenn man Ihm beim laufenden Betrieb an die Wäsche (Systemdateien) will.

What would be a point for running Linux drivers in NT? Older devices for which no NT driver exists (or at least none for Windows 2003+) Support for various devices on non-x86 for which no NT driver exists Sometimes the Linux drivers are better than their Windows equivalents(*) In my opinion a proje...

Re: ReactOS Fundraising Failure

To me, the more eye candy there is, the less I want to use it, since I care most about performance. Theme support would certainly be a good compromise, since those who want more eye candy can get it, and those who don't want it can disable it. I'd also like to have the option to have the UI acceler...
