Re: Can development focus be switched from XP to Windows 10?

Re: How to Run Reactos on Playstation 2

:D
yes, you got it wrong.

linux imitates unix, it fails to imitate Windows (any) yet about 20 years. :lol:
React OS is a clone of Windows NT (5.2 currently). It tries to recreate Windows at the binary compatibility level.

Re: Filesystems support in FreeLdr

And also, the OP does confuse an Installable File System "to install ReactOS on it" case with the loader FS support to boot the OS from case. It's different things. For the first, a full implementation of the FS, with all integration into the system, fully featured driver is needed. For the second, ...

Re: ReactOS (USB) TO GO

BIOS could do this too. UEFI should. But for the OS not having its own USB stack support, there should have been a special means to load everything needed into RAM, not only what an ordinary boot process loads. Thus, for a "live" OS session, kind of "ramdisk" should have been prepared and then loade...

Re: Intel to ditch CSM from UEFI in 2020, effects on ROS??

OSses that were developed with only a BIOS-based system firmware architecture in mind How do you know that? "Coreboot guys" told you that BS? These OSes were based on the previous versions capable running on Alpha, PPC and MIPS architectures, none of which had BIOS FW. And these systems were develo...

Re: The source code

Oh, sorry, I've just noticed I misread his post, he actually says its OS does need underlying services. Also, it does need an underlying NT BASED system to run Sorry, Redline_1, my bad. So it boils down to the GUI-less OS. But hey, that doesn't mean you don't need to know asm/C to create something o...

Користуються чимсь вже хоч трохи придатним для цього. РеактОС придатна поки лише для пробування, як воно виглядає, ну або для додавання туди свого внеску, якшо є така можливість.

Of course software could damage hardware. How did you forget about overclocking? As Michael mentioned - raising voltages too high could damage related modules. OC requires overvoltage.
