Re: GreenteaOS ReactOS fork: any thougts about that project?

The description of the ReactOS Project at the GreenteaOS git appears harsh. The harsh words are probably unintended. I blame the poor quality of the translated text. The GreenteaOS goals seem ambitious. Let's watch and wait. Linus Torvalds once said, "Talk is cheap. Show me the code." I honestly be...

Re: My future goal of using ReactOS

What are you planning on doing with this rig. I currently have an old Dell Dimension 3000, I use as my ROS rig, and i must say, I don't see ROS supporting new hardware anytime soon. There is very little need to use ROS as a day to day machine, and I'm very intrigued to see your reasoning. 1. I run ...

My future goal of using ReactOS

So I think I will finally share my future goal of transferring to a ReactOS system. I decided I will go a head and use ReactOS in my next hardware upgrade, which will be sometime in 2020 or 2021. To help accomplish this, I have pledged $50 usd per month (or 43 euro) to ReactOS (I may increase this t...

Re: [CALL FOR ACTION] ReactOS Trading Plan

Would be kind of nice if you kept us updated on this. As I see now, you are are up to 16.02%, right? When can we see currency coming from this for ReactOS?

Re: Windows 7-like theme in ReactOS

To implement aero style on ReactOS is necesary at least DWM fully implemented, right? What are the status of this and other components to make an aero msstyle full functional in ReactOS? Yes it requires DWM and it works through WDDM, as well, so both are required in order to have proper Aero suppor...

Re: Will btrfs be available immediately after GSOC?

Once this feature would be available, you'll see an option in the ReactOS Setup to format the disk using BTRFS filesystem (along with FAT32). That does not answer the question at all. It's just stating the obvious. Here is your answer: There is no straight forward answer to this. If he finishes eve...

Re: Reiser4 FS in React0S

As to what is more advanced, that would go to Winbtrfs. Winbtrfs stores 2 metadata of each file, in case of corruption, and grabs the one that is the best (this is useful for the current state of ReactOS and how much data corrupts currently on ReactOS). It also has check summing with the option to d...

Re: Must ReactOS fear a Microsoft change to NTFS?

You make an interesting assertion, Zombiedeth. Perhaps chkdsk changed. For instance if you run chkdsk in windows 8 on a windows 10 drive you will get numerous errors primarily errors about reparse points. And from windows xp to windows 7 you will get similar errors to a lesser extent so they are do...

Re: How far is ext2 support in ReactOS?

OK as it stands now: - Usetup (1st stage setup) can create a format an ext2 volume - FreeLoader (unlike NTLDR) CAN boot ReactOS from ext2 - The current issue is that it seems our ext2 driver has bit-rotted but Art has a new one which he can import which supposedly works - However, the ext2 driver d...

I meant why is it going through testing so early. Usually it is every 3 months or so. Just curious.

Re: Donor list update

It updates once a month. It would be nice if it could update more often or even in real-time, but I think a bug happened with the website that prevented that from happening or something.

Re: Only 1 student this year?

Just for the record, the only reason I brought this topic up was because I thought we only got 1 student because that is all who applied for ReactOS. I wasn't trying to insult anyone. If the ReactOS team thinks that only doing 1 student at a time and giving him extra help will help him stay with Rea...

Re: I don't know what to put for a title

GPL2 is preferred here as we will be able to contribute to Windows and Microsoft will be able to contribute to ReactOS. Win-win. With MIT, we can take but not give. GPL doesn't require anyone to give back, either. It only requires to state changes and license under same license. In this case, if yo...
