Re: What is the ultimate goal of react os?

The immediate goal, which likely means in a few years, seems to be a stable single core 32 bit Windows NT circa 2003 compatible operating system with a maximum addressable real memory of 4 GB. Note in 2003 Windows had 64 bit and multi core capability. So the goal is mostly to be stable 32 bit on a s...

Re: 64bit ReactOS Availability (Latest Firefox + Wine 64)

If I were the ReactOS Developers, I would stop 90% of works on 32Bit ReactOS and concentrate on the 64bit side. You and I may agree, but the developers here seem to know what they want and where they are headed. We can suggest alternative directions, but it is for the long term creators of this pro...

Re: Microsoft plan to migrate to ReactOS?

The future for Windows will not be as a server, Linux has that covered. It will be for office productivity, casual home users, and video game enthusiasts. To stay dominant in the office and at home, Microsoft must create a RISC capable version of Desktop Windows 10. It must create RISC capable versi...

Re: Intel processor design flaw requiring ROS kernel mode ch

L1 is specific to a core, L2 and L3 are not. The prefetch, virtual registers, and branch prediction are not isolated by thread within core in L1, but are at least somewhat isolated in L2 and L3. L2 and L3 test most security and access between cores and are slower. The dual core concept was to allow ...

Re: Intel processor design flaw requiring ROS kernel mode ch

It appears this is a side affect of a single CPU core sharing 2 hyperthreads. The L1 cache unique to a CPU core isn't isolated to each logical core. Software running in the same core can see L1 prediction information from another process working on the other thread on the same core. Turning hyperthr...
