Re: Reiser4 FS in React0S

If that were to happen ReactOS would be the only non Linux OS to support it out of the box even then only a few Distros support it and probably not version 4 at that... ReiserFS is tainted by the name of its developer unfortunately it's pretty much doomed on Linux. Seems pointless to support an FS ...

Re: Raspberry Pi Support

At least for the start one needs to know what the ReactOS kernel does expect from the loader, the protocol in a broad sense. where is this information floating, compactly if possible? :)

Re: Raspberry Pi Support

I just wanted to say, that I have a little of knowledge of ARM arhcitecture (both 32 and 64 bit), assembly languages, are familiar with EABI, other architectural specifics, so it would be interesting to participate, but it's not the task for one. And RPi is the worst ARM SBC out there, to be perfect...

Re: Wiki captcha broken (reCAPTCHA V1 IS SHUTDOWN)

thank you, middings. I finally found that page. It realy is this page . Interesting, I went there before, but it rejected to accept my credentials. Even now it worked from the second try. Still, even after authorization, it rejects the password change, saying "the current password is missing or inco...

So, is there ...

Re: Intel processor design flaw requiring ROS kernel mode ch

Support for proprietary NTFS write capability seems a waste, if ReactOS becomes popular Microsoft will just modify NTFS via a patch and cause ReacOS to damage their improved file system. Read NTFS, yes, write NTFS NO, don't do it. ... If focus isn't placed on open source file systems supported by L...

Re: GitHub Replacement Plan?

What a kindergarten here. A contigency plan is definitely needed. What if Microsoft secretly steals ReactOS code and ships with Windows *? seriously, are you trolling, right? or it's a humor section? then well, let me joke too. Of course they will steal the code. After all turning Windows into an al...

Re: Question about graphical subsystem

Anyone? :D Was the question too stupid? Or nobody just can answer? I didn't ask for making a search for me, or explain in great details, that would take a lot of time, I just was wondered, maybe you have some handy resources near you on the topic. Of course I have been searching... Not that I found ...

Question about graphical subsystem

I am a total newbass in graphical stuff. But want to learn a little about it. On the example of Windows graphical subsystem of course! It's actually what I am curious about. I mean 2D desktop windowing things, not 3D gaming things. Where do the graphics developers of ReactOS get information on "grap...

Re: .net exe not working?

Re: Windows update

Windows Update is written by sadists, that hate Windows. In past, I have been experiencing so many frustration and lost so many nerves because of it. It's the most annoying and uncomfortable thing in the Windows realm. Once it was so slow on a new installation of Windows 7 and upgraded hardware, tha...

Re: File vs block caching

Block caching is much dumber than file caching. it was used in much older systems - Win95 I guess, old Unixes, VMS. It cannot bring any advantages over file caching. For example it's impossible to use a read-ahead technique, when cache manager could cache data that might have been requested later, b...
