Re: Element Software partnership?

Pharaoh_Atem: The cut off issue is NOT a fault of EB. It is Microsofts fault as they made the new border padding in Vista and 7 ridiculously huge, which makes the renderer in EB cut off. Huh? I'm using Windows XP There is no uninstall shortcut because it is already provided by Add/Remove programs. ...

Pharaoh_Atem: No tabbed browsing??? Tabbed browsing has been a feature of EB since the 1.0 version. Simply Click On the orb, and select New Tab, or click Page Tools > Shelf Pane. Tabs were renamed to Shelfs in this release due to the whole Tab shelf convention (i.e they are not normal tabs, you can...

Re: Element Software partnership?

vicmarcal : The browser is already compatible with Windows XP and above, since it was origanlly designed for that operating system (Its avaliable on CNET and softpedia for all windows platforms) What I meant was that there will be a version of the browser primarly aimed at ReactOS\ElementOS users a...

Unless, there are a new optional LFN file-system which is totally different structure than FAT32 can be developed. I guess, that is why other new OS using *Nix based FS to avoid these obstacle. Actually there are two ways to get around it. One is the new way implemented in the patch by the Linux ke...

Re: Element Software partnership?

FAT was origanally developed by IBM for the use of IBM DOS. *Sounds buzzer* WRONG! IBM never developed IBM DOS. Microsoft did. Until about MSDOS 5, IBM DOS was a fork designed specifically for IBM systems. IBM DOS 5 and up were simple rebranding of MSDOS. Also, Bill Gates and Marc MacDonald (who wa...

Re: I can help with visual GUI designer for ReactOS

As far as cross-platform toolkits go, Qt seems less quirky than wxWidgets, GTK+, or FLTK. GTK+ is very annoying on Windows sometimes. The most annoying bug in GTK+ based applications is the weirdness in handling context menus. FLTK doesn't integrate with Windows AT ALL. It literally doesn't match wi...

Re: Layers

Is React OS going to start using SQL if Microsoft do? Without some sort of compatibility layer, residing on top of such sql database and converting input/output to the correct format, all application compatibility would be lost. Isn't the registry technically a flat-file database? And in any case, ...

Re: Thank you VERY much!

Mono has different profiles targeting different versions of the .NET Framework. And Mono is binary compatible with .NET generated binaries. Depending on the corelib searched, Mono will activate either .NET 1.1 or .NET 2.0 support. When that installer searched for .NET, if it searched for 1.1 before ...

Re: Sourceforge Awards 2009: REACTOS is a finalist

Indeed, I voted for ReactOS in all three categories. I believe ReactOS can win these three categories! Hmm, it is still puzzling how PortableApps made it into commercial open source project, but it was the only category left that I didn't choose something, so meh... I do use PortableApps a lot so ke...

Re: OpenGL acceleration on Reactos with Vbox Video drivers

The VirtualBox Additions for Windows NT based OSes are open source, so once the drivers are supported in ReactOS, why not add a module where someone could just drop the source tree of the VM Additions and have it automatically build into the livecd and bootcd? http://www.virtualbox.org/browser/trunk...

Re: Audio Working on QEMU. ( AC97 )

I may not agree with everything RMS says, but I do agree on his definition of copyleft. As for ideology, I'm a bit more closely aligned with the OSI rather than the FSF, because I'm a pragmatist at heart. I would also rather prefer CC-*-NC-* licenses over regular gratisware. It doesn't mean ROS cann...

Re: Canadian government eyes open source, asks for feedback

Personally I don't think it's that much of a problem whether Linux or ReactOS become standard for governments. Once they use one they will start to use the other also. These 2 open source projects have a symbiosis thing going on I think. sometimes i think it's symbiosis, other times it's more like ...
