Re: How did you know about ReactOS?

A few days ago I bought a hard disk solely for the purpose of installing and testing ReactOS Be careful with that hardware! ;) Is it reasonable to assume that ReactOS might destroy the content of the hard disc but it's rather unlikely (even though there still is a slight possibility) that the hardw...

Re: How did you know about ReactOS?

I heard about ReactOS too long ago to still remember how I initially found it. I read that it's previous name was "FreeWin95" but it's name was already "ReactOS" when I heard the first time about it. The idea of building a Windows clone sounded good to me but I stopped watching the progress because ...

release cycle

Hello, I have a newbe question about the release cycle of ReactOS. I noticed on iso.reactos.org that there are already builds for 0.4.8 even though the official last released version is still 0.4.6. Some days later (yesterday) the first bug was fixed with the fixVersion 0.4.8 (instead of 0.4.7). Was...

Re: /LARGEADDRESSAWARE

regarding 1) I have no idea about the support in ReactOS but I don't think that the size manipulation of user space and kernel space is even supported by all versions of Windows. It works in some versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista but I am not so sure about the older versions. regarding 3) Fro...

Re: Druaga1 is Installing New ReactOS on 3 Computers (0.4.6)

If this forum had a "thanks" button then I would press it for vals last post. :) But there actually is a point worth mentioning pro virtual machines: If you do low level programming in windows for some time and then you use ollydbg for the first time you get (or at least I got) the feeling "ah, fina...

Re: Windows 10 on cpu ARM: executable format.

The file format for executables and libraries which is used in other versions of windows is compatible with the ARM architecture. Microsoft Corporation made some small changes to this file format regarding the ARM architecture in the last years. I am not a hundred percent sure if this information he...

Re: Sicherheitslücke in vielen Intel-Systemen seit 2010

Bei (U)EFI gibt es prinzipiell ein ähnliches Problem: Die Firmware kann die Software übergehen und den Computer auf eine Art nutzen, wie eigentlich nur Software dies tun würde. Das Betriebssystem oder sonst eine Software kann den Eingriff eventuell nicht feststellen. Realistisch gesehen kann davon a...

Re: Mum tries out....

Sure, I can contribute something to the summary of the video. I usually got problems with youtube, too, so I usually use clipconverter.cc to download the video and then watch it from hard disc (where the playback is also much faster compared to the in-browser-playback). The video is from April 2013 ...

Re: Druaga1 is Installing New ReactOS on 3 Computers (0.4.6)

Well, he uploaded a video about ReactOS 0.4.0, about ReactOS 0.4.3 and one about ReactOS 0.4.6, so it might take some time for the next to come. The alpha-no-real-hardware-argument is a little feeble. An alpha test is (in my opinion) what the developers do while they are working: They program a part...
