Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx

Qualcomm recently announced the Snapdragon 8cx, which is designed for Windows 10 on ARM as a laptop / tablet alternative to Intel / AMD. It supposedly has a very improved GPU, is 64 bit ARM based, and has a maximum TDP of 7 watts. It can support up to 2 4K output devices (personally this seems doubt...

NVIDIA PhysX Engine now Open Source including XP

NVIDIA PhysX Engine is now open source, this includes source for Windows XP and up (as well as Apple IOS and Linux). Source here - https://developer.nvidia.com/physx-sdk it is an SDK. This may make it easier to implement many video cards under ROS. This uses a BSD 3 license. If you want real hardwar...

Re: I Have a Dream... You Might Hate it

Alan,
Start a fundme for ROS take 25% off the top. ROS needs USB boot, it needs to finish 32 bit support. See if you can get these folks $100K with only the promise the funds will be used 25% by you, 5% or whatever by the fundme site, and the remainder by ROS developers to expedite the free beta.

Re: Universal audio driver

Universal realtek audio card driver https://github.com/alanfox2000/realtek-universal-audio-driver I wonder how much it would be useful for reactOS, especially since the project is on the GNU General Public License v2.0 For audio, HDMI drivers are likely more important at this time. HDMI can be nast...

Re: When will ReactOS x64 available?

I believe Valve is supporting WINE because it's ready to play games now with the long term goal of making Linux a viable gaming platform. ReactOS is not at that point yet. A hardware compatible USB stack will go a long way towards drawing more man power to the project i'm sure that will be a turnin...

Re: When will ReactOS x64 available?

When do you think ROS will be working for daily use? Under the current development modality, probably never. However, my hope is a shift in development initiative will come. There is nothing wrong with the developers, there aren't enough of them, and they lack time to do a lot of the work. Interest...

I really want to know when ReactOS x64 can run as well as ReactOS x86.
ReactOS MSVC x64 in the Daily Build page does not work properly.
One day .... hopefully.

Re: Windows' kernel once tried to deal with gamma rays

From a suspended state, my assumption would be any pre-fetch data, partially executed code, or look aside buffers would be invalid. Purging them likely wouldn't take long, and wouldn't cause any substantial impact on performance as this wouldn't happen very often.

From any suspended state, why not clear cache on reactivation?

Re: Raspberry Pi Support

They use so called Compiled Hybrid PE (CHPE) technology, see picture from the presentation: It is a good idea to spread ROS to ARM, but implementing the extensions Microsoft has added to facilitate this will likely require that ROS multi core and 64 bit support be completed. The problem is developm...

Re: Raspberry Pi Support

And EXACTLY WHAT will you do with an ARM port? - ReactOS is only an OS, not a "suite of apps"! So will you then handle compiling everything on ARM by yourself, from Firefox to LibreOffice? It "sounds nice", but is entirely pointless in a greater perspective right now. Windows 10 RT is migrating tow...

Re: In the event Microsoft decides to open source Windows

Thanks for your reply, this caused me to check out OS/2 and where it is headed or not headed. Turns out https://www.os2world.com is aware of ReactOS, and has some discussion about various forks of OS/2 mixed in with discussion of ReactOS. See for example - https://www.os2world.com/forum/index.php/to...

Re: Is 0.4.10 on track to be released today?

Development can't be done on an exact clock. A sense of realistic small steps that can be completed in reasonable units of time is a good idea, but controlling software development shouldn't be a clock, but an improved and stable release meeting most objectives which were set for it.

Re: In the event a trade regulator takes Windows away from Microsoft

What do you think will happen in case a trade regulator takes Windows away from Microsoft due to Microsoft being a monopolistic position in system software industry?
