Any seconds on NOT putting this into ReactOS? If Windows begins to monitor us, I wonder if ClamWin/AntiVire/any other non-MS antivirus will uninstall Windows with the log entry "SpyWare Found: Windows Vista Home Premuim"?

Windows binary Registry: fatter, maybe a bit faster, and cannot be edited with edit when that program you just installed decides to play games.

(there is a whole other thread about this.) Before we play with KDE's, GNOME's, XFCE's, or (name here)'s GUI, lets make sure we can handle doing so. DOSStart works in ROS DosBox!

I can't remember what GUI or OS does this, I think it is a DOS GUI, but, all programs put their config files in one folder. The registry is created from all of those files. Program uninstaller deletes these files. Every write to the registry updates the files. Any blank configuration lines do not ge...

Do you test on real hardware or not? Please remember, too, that ReactOS isn't exactly a picture of stability. Not yet, anyway.

WOW is one way 16 bit code works... if someone where to have the free time, someone could create a WOW out of QEMU's ability to user-mode programs. Someone could be able to make a SOW, so that, say, our version of Singularity would be embedded into the QEMU VM, making it blend into the desktop. Ring...

I think one problem with doing this is that Macs, even laptop models, only use USB equipment. ROS has little support for USB, and the USB mouse (keyboard too, if it was ever supported) has been disabled due to being unstable. PS: don't think either macs work right now anyway...

Yes, 16 bit is not compatible with 32 bit, unless thunked. I truly believe that there will be some thunk for blackhole, or possibly even the current Win32 API ported to run on the blackhole OS. If Blackhole eventually does not run any Windows API, and Windows is killed, ROS might get a good hold. Bu...

It's all great until you try an unported Win32 program and realize that SIP is going to make you port most things. Or use a virtualizer built for Blackhole.
