Re: Generic name for Microsoft Windows

There isn't a catchall for "all" Windows and ReactOS. We use NT operating system for ReactOS and the Windows OSes based on NT.

Re: ReactOS explorer_new on Windows?

This is something that the team has discussed internally, the tricky part is the functionality that Microsoft has actually removed from shell32 that our explorer depends on and what is removed is dependent on which version of Windows we're looking at. We need to figure out a clean way of providing t...

General Testing for ReactOS 0.4.0

We are in theory approaching the release of 0.4.0 and an RC was put up a while ago. Said RC upload actually blindsided a couple of us so it was not put in the regular place, nor did we actually notify the wider community. Miscommunications happen. Anyway, the tests for 0.4.0 can be found here: https...

Re: 0.4.0 release branch!

We've been using the "based on" remark too sloppily. What we actually mean is the CE cannot be released until after 0.4.0 is out. The CE will however almost certainly be just another branch off of trunk. Point releases are, to be perfectly frank, irrelevant from a developmental standpoint. They are ...

Re: I ask that a forum moderator delete all my messages

The project as a general rule does not delete posts. It generally takes extraordinary circumstances for us to do so, and this is not one of them.

Re: 0.4.0 release branch!

I am getting more than a little tired of having to repeat this. The project makes NO promises about what goes into a release or what "must" be in a release. This means that lack of stable USB or sound or whatever does not constitute a blocker for 0.4.0. Everything on the 0.4.0 wiki page is, at best,...

Re: Reactos don't start if registry is damage

There are two ways to do what you are suggesting, via a journaling filesystem or via transactional operations. Journaling requires a filesystem that actually supports it. FAT and ext2 do not. A full implementation of NTFS would. Ext3 also has journaling, but someone would have to write said filesyst...

Uh, no, the bluescreen is a symptom, not a cause.

Re: Reactos don't start if registry is damage

In these kinds of situations, the better long term approach is to determine how the registry got corrupted in the first place since it is indicative of what I would consider a pretty serious bug.

Re: [IDEA] The ReactOS Update

People need to stop proposing that Linux systems and design constructs be somehow repurposed for usage in an operating system that implements the NT architecture. Such proposals go completely against the stated objective of the project since by their very nature they are basically advocating for bre...

Re: 0.4.0 release branch!

If the team's intention is to release 0.4.0 by the end of the year, then there is effectively zero chance that they'll hit all of the milestones that were originally proposed. USB and sound does not have anyone actively working on them and unless Thomas pulls off a miracle I doubt there's enough tim...

Re: About showing pictures of hacked/illegal software

As I stated previously, I don't care about the picture. What I do care about is the insinuation by the originator of the post about the means he took to get the ROM. Contrary to his belief, possession of the original cartridge does not grant him the 'right' to go download a ROM. The only 'right' cop...
