By design, ReactOS should be able to run every application (and driver!) made for Windows NT. So if it doesn't run Litestep already, it should sometime in the future.

Wikipedia also has a _ton_ of information on Windows 2000: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_2000 Seems like someone found a great Win2k reference and dropped the knowlege into Wikipedia. It wasn't really copied I don't think... I watched their Win2k article go from being a small stub to an enorm...

Colored scrollbar on the forum

It's very annoying, can it be removed please?

(PS: The comment in the HTML source claims that it's only for IE, but it's not true -_-)

FreeDOS's chkdsk works fine for me... I run FreeDOS on an old Pentium 120. The hard disk is formated FAT32, so the chkdsk has no problems with at least FAT12 (floppy disks usually) and FAT32 (my hard disk :p) it seems. It's logical to assume that it works for FAT16 partitions, but I have none to test.

Isn't there some talk about WINE using Windows Vista userland drivers? <_<

Active Directory is excellent in large networks. However, domains are much easier in smaller networks ;)

Sounds like it would take a serious master-coder to produce a working non-copyright violating NTFS system, the only reason I really like NTFS is for the compression ability myself, and it makes my folders have blue text :D There's already a non-violating system, it just has to be ported to ReactOS/...

I'm sorry if it came off as such, but I wasn't attacking anyone, or the ReactOS dev team itself. If a user/"developer" is caught breaking an NDA with Microsoft (or anyone else), I do hope that he his kicked out of the project's development (until the NDA is expired), and that all acompying (sp?) cod...

Unless some ROS developer is breaking an NDA with Microsoft, there's a lot to learn about how Windows operates still. ReactOS-devs don't know everything about Windows yet, but someday they hopefully will ;) Well, now that I've read the MSFN topic, sounds like a good idea. It's on the same playing fi...

Firstly, the QEMU image is meant to be booted with QEMU.

Secondly, the install CD is meant to be booted from a CD (or in an emulator like QEMU or VMware).

I've seen the unofficial service pack (and used it, too), it's not open sourcing anything. It's just taking a bunch of patches from MS Windows Update and rolling them up into an easy-to-install package. Technically, they even violate Microsoft's license and is illegal (to help your neighbor, to put ...

you're probably better off going with MinGW anyway... a lot of the devs compile ReactOS on GNU/Linux, and I don't think they're going to switch operating systems to use Microsoft's compiler (no matter how many more APIs that one has over MinGW).

Yeah, it's a small annoyance... but what do you do on forums that don't have a "new posts" feature? It's not a critical thing, I don't think, but it'd be nice if it where either fixed or just removed altogether.

Wow... some people's ideas of what is "old" is really amazing! Minimum system requirements of ReactOS I think are around a Pentium-I era machine, 16MB of RAM, and about 50MB of hard disk space. I would highly discourage use of PartitionMagic. I have a copy, and it has done nothing good for me, only ...

There's a reason BugZilla exists. IRC isn't the best place (by far) to report bugs.
