One that caught my attention was a "Gaming Mode". Now I don't know if ReactOS would ever need something like this (since it's meant to be light and fast), but it still could be useful (like how sometimes people end Explorer.EXE for a little more head-room). Maybe there could be in the control panel ...

Would it take up considerable resources if it was just an auto-notifier that there's an update available, and then you had to manually go to wherever the updates are hosted? (like the windows update site)

Vorg, supposedly you NEVER want to use a swap partition on a SSD. I believe it's something like doing constant writing is quite slow on things like flash memory. It just so happens that I was looking into that yesterday :P (the idea of SSD as the primary and a HDD as the swap mainly) Some of the pla...

There are several games in this topic that don't work right now. :P I think we're all kind of looking ahead to when most apps WILL work.

I happen to have a copy of the Grid Wars game (version 5.4). It's a slower-paced geometry wars clone for Windows, but Bizarre Creations wanted it to be taken down, but you can still find a copy of version 5.3 on Download.com XD

Soooo... would that be allowed? :P

EDIT: yes it's open source

Live/Install CD doesn't work on older PCs?

I just burned the ReactOS 0.3 Live and installation CD. Neither of them will boot on my family's HP Pavilion 8650C (6 years old), custom built PC with Win2K (5 years old), nor my HP Pavilion N5250 laptop (5 years old). But when I put them into my sisters new Toshiba Satellite laptop, both disks work...
