Re: In the event Microsoft decides to open source Windows

Not Windows 10 as we hoped "We" == only you. Like said everytime by lot of people : All people is not English native and in few languages there is a indemnified personnel pronoun (not including people in particular), which is translate by "We" by error in Google Translate. For a better comprehensio...

Re: Wine 5.0 released

Sadly it shows again, that there is a lack of cooperation between ReactOS and WINE. The cmd.exe of ReactOS is better. And they have two different versions of the Taskmanager. Same with some other programs and libaries which goes other ways. It's difficult to compare two projects so different. The g...

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

Try with a date before 2000 to be sure it's not a problem of the date (like the Year 2000 Problem).

Re: So impressed by ReactOS 0.4.14

I am a bit confused here. You refer to ReactOS 0.4.14 but on the website latest available release is 0.4.12. Where did you get your 0.4.14 from? It's a development build not a real release yet. Those builds are nightlies from the latest master on Github. Anything from master right now is .4.14, bec...

Yeah, I think I misread the first part of your sentence.
It's nothing, and maybe it's because of me. I'm not English native and sometimes I use a word for another, or use unusual syntax.

Re: ReactOS updater

Yes, but if there is a server for update of ReactOS, it would be very good. So you mean like remote updates across an entire local network? Yes, that would be great in an enterprise environment. And my earlier comment about BITS was concerning 3rd-party software that uses it. I am pretty sure that ...

Re: Open Source collection

For the moment the OS is not finish (the development status is alpha), it's for that there is no CD packages. But you can burned your own.

And it is not even an option at this point. Even if the updaters were compatible, and even if ROS could accept their upgrades, XP and 2003 support are long gone.

But ReactOS is in development, maybe install Linux for the moment would be a better choice.

Re: Update Manager and compatibility?

You can find the answer on the homepage of the website of ReactOS : "They're talking about ReactOS 0.4.12 (even if we're just Alpha) ".

Maybe you don't know what is an Alpha sowftware ?
Alpha means, it's the first step of development, it's very far away for a daily usage.

If I want to install the latest version of Firefox, what needs to be replaced on my system?
ReactOS is not ready to replace Windows for the moment, the system is currently in development. For the latest Firefox, there are lot of features not implemented in ReactOS, it's for that you can't use it.
