or prahaps all the other tests are by linux hippies who are afraid that ms can make a more reliable server that's what i wanted to say with the joke... don't argument with studies! it's just false to say "windows is more secure than linux" or "...linux is more secure..." windows can be as secure as...

How does that work ? I looked at wikipedia and searched the internet, but I couldn't find a explaination. Here is Namesys's (and Reiser4's) main site: http://www.namesys.com The documentation on the atomic part is here (it also talks about all other types of filesystems too): http://www.namesys.com...

Thats 'fast user switching', and do you notice its VERY slow (its painfully slow on my 1900+ Athlon XP with 512 megs of ram)? On Linux I can be logged in twice (or more) and go at very good speeds (one can even be in a chroot environment, so it doesn't share ANY resources with the other user since i...

The version I'm making using C# is being modeled after Synaptic. I'm trying to model the underlying system more like Gentoo's Portage (its very flexible, you can install from source with different build flags, or a binary version, and it fetches the actual files from the projects server, the rest is...

The only difference between Ext2 and Ext3 is that Ext3 has journaling. You can even switch between the two on the fly with 1 remount. Ext3 really was just a hack on top of Ext2 (it works very well though). For partitions that hardly ever get read Ext2 is great (like '/boot' on Linux). ReiserFS 3 is ...

My version of the package manager has been developing... slowly... I just started school (I had like a 1 1/2 week break), and about to take the SATs, (possibly) get a huge project (the 4 individual parts would be BIG alone haha). I had been mostly working on the non-GUI part (C#'s layout system piss...

If early on there is support for multiple users (just like in Linux you can have virtually infinite different users logged in) then older 9x programs (or just poorly written NT ones) could be programmed around by having them start as user 'PROGRAMSNAME' which would just act as if its directory is it...

Windows 9x were horribly designed OSes, they had ZERO support for multiple users, they FAT16/32 were HORRIBLE filesystems (NTFS isn't that much better), each release of 9x got more and more unstable, if a program crashed it could easily take down the whole system (more often than not it did), bad dr...

There is a bootloader with winXP? I didn't even know it... Where is it?
Try pressing F8 while booting (start pressing it when control goes from the BIOS to Windows). XP's boot menu (not really a boot loader) is really limited in what it can do.

"And I think its very important that users dont work with the admin account!" Thats the most important thing! If the ROS developers can come up with a way to work around the problem with all the software out there that won't work AT ALL as a limited user then that will be GREAT for ReactOS's security.

Avalon isn't going to be in Longhorn (one of the many features touted for longhorn that got axed a few months ago so they would finish with in this decade). MS has been talking about Avalon since NT4 (every time they changed the name), I think one of the older ones was called Cairo or something. EDI...

I like the idea of using 2 separate media players, one for audio and one for video (though I think most users would prefer only 1). For example in linux I use amaroK (best audio player I've ever used!) for playing all my music (includes a media library to make it easier to set up playlists), for vid...
