Re: Kernel progress?

The release announcements alone take weeks of work to write and polish, nevermind also writing regular blog post updates about what's going on at an acceptable level of quality. If there were a dedicated ReactOS PR person who knew enough about the technical stuff going on, maybe that would be viable...

Re: ReactOS in the wild

It seems they are using ReactOS' command line interpreter (cmd.exe), which is itself based on the one from FreeDOS (hence "Tim Norman" appearing in the copyright license). Do you say this based only on the Tim Norman reference, or is there something else you found? All I can see from FLIR themselve...

Re: Romanian localization

There is at least some work towards having Romanian supported: https://github.com/reactos/reactos/search?q=romanian&type=Commits Feel free to submit any other changes you think are necessary via a GitHub Pull Request.

Re: VirtualBox 4.0.8 on ReactOS 0.4.13

I can confirm that there's an issue with VirtualBox. I've tested versions 4.0.8 and 5.2.12 as well as a few in between. When creating a new VM, the dropdown area to select the OS template is blank. There doesn't appear to be an issue in Jira related to this and I swear I've been able to run VBox ins...

This is a proposal/concept for how an update tool could work. This is not a statement rega...

Re: Ease of update

First - ReactOS is targeting Windows XP/Windows Server 2003, not Windows 2000.

But the short answer to your questions is yes; once the base is stable, extending it to be compatible with other versions of Windows will be much quicker. In fact, some of those newer API calls are already implemented.

Re: Two decades later...what's the point?

Microsoft doesn't give two flying fucks if you download Windows 98 and set it up in a VM. Ever try to install Windows XP or Server 2003 in a VM? Without a license or some sort of crack, you only get a few days of functionality until it stops working correctly. That would be fine enough for me, sinc...

Re: Proposal for a package management system for ReactOS

Yeah, I think the idea of this as a project isn't bad - just not something that ROS devs should have added to their workload. If anyone has the time and interest, by all means start working on an XP-compatible package manager. Then once it's working, it could be added to RApps for easy install in ROS.

Re: Ctrl-Alt-Delete not working in logging screen

No its not at boot Its the logging screen. Its a feature in windows that you have to hit Ctrl-Alt-Del to get to the logging in menu. I am stuck in the graphical interface, on the logging screen. Trust me, I know exactly what you mean. When I said "at boot time" I meant when ReactOS starts, but befo...

Re: Project Breeze

The problem becomes when many people all have their pet project or favorite theme that they also want included in the ISO. ReactOS right now is around 100 MB. If there were even 10 additional themes at 1 MB a piece that's 10% more stuff to download every time, at 10% extra time to do it. 10% more sp...

Re: Ctrl-Alt-Delete not working in logging screen

If you are prompted to hit Ctrl-Alt-Del to login right away at boot time, then this is a symptom that your filesystem and/or registry was somehow corrupted. There's not really an easy fix for this yet aside from re-installing the OS.
