WIndows will never be Open Source, Microsoft doesn't need it...
Never said never, but it's unlikely.

Re: Why is ReactOS based on a 17-year-old version of Windows?

Let's be clear: MS Windows is Coca Cola ReactOS is trying to recreate the same flavor but using known ingredients and recipes shared by others. Maybe Coca Cola improved the flavor in reclently years, but ReactCola is still in the attempt to get the flavor of 17 years ago, still doesn't taste the sa...

Re: Two decades later...what's the point?

Two decades later...what's the point? The fact is, ReactOS was and is a great contributor of WINE, and maybe without it, WINE should be not so good. It's true there is a long way to be in Release Candidate, but there is close in comparison of the previous years. The project just need more focus and...

Re: [solved] writing a driver: why does Windows not know the date

It's a joke because, before 2000 in the XXth century, there is a bug with the changing of date (1900 -> 2000).

Re: Viruses?

I think you frightened him, he doesn't answer any more. The guy just ask if there are viruses, and you are limited insulting him (saying he's not an expert...). To "R" : Welcome to the ReactOS Forum, sorry for the zealous guys. For your question, it's a certainty, there is no virus only false positi...

Re: projet ReactOS App

Comme l'a dit dizt3mp3r, il y a déjà un tel logiciel et l'OS est encore en Alpha, en plus il porte le même nom, mais si j'ai bien compris tu voudrais en faire une version web, ce qui pourrais être bien pour le futur mais encore un peu prématuré.

Re: Real Hardware - Post yours

Basically you can run Firefox and a few other older browsers none of which renders modern web sites entirely correctly. The system is in alpha state and the target is Windows Server 2003, this is completely normal only older browsers work (the support of W2003/XP is stopped for long time now). The ...

The only problem with RAPPS - we don't have any screenshot/preview features here.
I thought the same think, it could be a good thing.

Re: More compatible device drivers

If you are not comfortable with English, there are other language sections , maybe your native language is one of them? To give you an answer, the project is in development status and lot of drivers/applications/features are not implemented yet or not working for the moment. The ultimate goal of the...

Re: In the event Microsoft decides to open source Windows

To return to the topic, I don't see a question of the what happen, if Microsoft open source Windows, ReactOS would simply add the open source features not implemented and continue the project.

Re: writing a driver: why does Windows refuse to load my simple driver?

Because at first ReactOS was an open source alternative for Windows 95 (kernel near from the 2000's one) Certainly not. ReactOS was originally an alternative to Windows NT 4, then Windows 2000, then XP and Server 2003. Windows 9x/Me OS and kernels are of completely different design than those of Wi...

The imdemnified we that h. shunesburg mentions excludes the original listener, not the speaker itself.
This kind of fourth person is very common in Austronesian languages.
In French too. (I'm French and at the beginning, I made the same mistake)

Re: writing a driver: why does Windows refuse to load my simple driver?

made a copy of vga.sys from Microsoft. From what version ? XP, 7, 10 ? So why doesn't the ReactOS vga.sys work under Windows 2000? Because at first ReactOS was an open source alternative for Windows 95 (kernel near from the 2000's one) but know the target is Windows Server 2003. Try with XP if you ...
