What is generally used in cases like this, is a serial to usb cable, like this one: http://www.ftdichip.com/Products/Cables/USBRS232.htm

Re: Home page feedback / comments

State of development / roadmap: What state of development is it at? "Alpha" doesn't really help to get an idea. For example, what's the roadmap, and how advanced is work on it or major things to be done? Is there a roadmap / achievements / stuff to do page (possibly JIRA but perhaps a wiki page or ...

Re: ReactOS Windows Equivalent?

The tl;dr version: OS editions are nothing but marketing crap of MS. Aside some missing applications between both "server" and "client" editions, the difference between them is a single registry switch. That's all. It doesn't matter a thing to consumer if the OS is either "client" or "server" editi...

Re: [CALL FOR ACTION] ReactOS Trading Plan

Sorry, I don't really know how any of this works, but if I understand correctly, as of the time I am posting this, you have generated a total of $10,377 (or euros?)? Hey ROCKNROLLKID, One of the happy early adopters here :) This graph shows what would happen on a 10.000 investment. The idea behind ...

Re: Version compatibility

they came up with the best compromise they could between average user interaction and letting programs even do anything in the first place. I'm not convinced by this one line though I'd accept the rest of what you said. Should we just accept that we've all had negative experiences with Windows 'fea...

Re: Version compatibility

UAC is garbage. TrustedInstaller is garbage. Symlinks are garbage that made impossible to install NT6 onto FAT32, not to mention that directory redirections only added unneeded and unwanted complexity with virtually zero benefits, including the security aspect. Administrating or repairing NT6+ is a...

Re: Can I programatically detect if running on ReactOS?

Maybe check the file properties of a system file for ReactOS could be an idea. Do you have a specific file/property in mind I could check? I'd really be interested in a reliable method that would be promised by the developers to always be in the OS. I'm assuming that doesn't yet exist. Would the te...

Re: Version compatibility

Very early work and still missing a ton of nt6+ compatibility, but still quite an accomplishment. Congratulations guys. I asume that ' One-Core API ' is helping ReactOS in this task. From https://www.reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16187 : *removed* not at all, and please stop linking to it.
