"the next microsoft"

A material addressed at Microsoft:
http://www.minimallyminimal.com/journal ... osoft.html
...but which can hold valuable design vision/ideas for everyone else, including ReactOS.

Re: ReactOS executables detected by Avira

The detections probably are heuristics. Other AV do the same (BitDeffender in my case). Disable the AV until the .iso file is created or check out if you can specify exceptions for the scan. You should understand that AVs (and the addopted detection level) are addressing the security of a common mac...

Automatic code complexity analysis

I've read recently a blog post about Linux kernel analysis using a rather simple tool - Arqua . Currently, the tool consists of a single Perl script (which can be ported if nothing else), and it seems to me that it might be useful both for analysis in ReactOS development and for generating educative...

Re: ReactOS Fundraising 2012 - Subtasks

1. Who's in charge of PR? It's Victor Martinez (with his username as vicmarcal around here on the forum). You can ask him more about PR. 4. How will the accountability be presented? 5. How can individuals, companies and governments follow the money trail? When it's about a funding source which has ...

Re: Read this if you've found software useful to ReactOS

I found about Fossil a while ago. It was already suggested as SCM for ReactOS before, and sufficiently discussed here , so I don't reiterate that. What I am suggesting now is Fossil as a possible component or a base for an in-house component for an eventual automatic operating system update mechanis...

500k USD entry fee

Samsung becomes platinum member in Linux Foundation:

I can't help but wonder if similar moves can or can not happen involving ReactOS Foundation.

Um, where exactly would one do that? :oops:
It was about the Compatibility Database, a part of ReactOS support. I don't know how much relevant it still is though, considering the ongoing effort for automatic testing of applications under ReactOS.

Re: Resource Editing

...manual editing? In the past I used to generate VS sollutions and convert the resource files to UTF16 to be able to use the Microsoft's VS resource editor (reconverting them back to UTF8 when done), but it was too much of a bother. It could have been worse than what you're dealing with now, you kn...

Re: Elect a new project leader

Hi folks! I suggest to vote for a new project leader. It is time for a new begining, pushing the project further. After years of alpha status there should be an end of term of the current project leader to give chance to others. Well come to the ReactOS project. Thou shalt need to be citizen to cas...

Re: Oxygen Icon Theme

A little critique on diplayed work: - At least "My Computer" and "My Documents" don't stand out as different from Tango. - According to other Windows icon themes I know so far, the "My Documents" icon should look like an ordinary folder with additional distinctive elements. Your (unfinished perhaps)...

Re: ReactOS Fundraising 2012

Just an information in my country you can employ 4-5 fulltime developers(with the degree: master of compuer science) for 30.000€ (without taxes so maybe 4) a year. That's an interesting point! In my country the employers don't pay taxes for employee programmers. :!: <evangelism> That's because the ...
