When ReactOS has more features, it should grow. But hopefully never into the gigabyte-range of Windows 2000 and XP. Only if it's necessay, but I have a feeling it won't be (hell, WinNT4 runs fine in only 160MB, there's no excuse for Win2k being 800MB and WinXP/2003 being 1.4GB)

Actually, current Linux-NTFS code has very flexible safe write support. It isn't a part of the kernel driver yet until they have a lot more testing, but it can be expected that the kernel's driver will be updated in Linux 2.6.15 http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/man/ntfsmount.html Fully implemented ...

Those are pre-compiled ISOs, I meant the complete source code.

SVN trunk/ tar.bz2 or tar.gz snapshots

somewhere on the http svn.reactos.org subdomain, there should be snapshots of the trunk available in tar.bz2 or tar.gz form. They don't necessarily need to be for every day, but possibly only built for every 100 SVN commits, or some other number. Just a quick way to get a recent and clean SVN tree w...

Even Microsoft tries to make it clear that "themes" and "visual styles" are not the same thing. Themes are essentially the same as they were in Windows 95 Plus!, with a few additions. Visual styles are the .msstyle (secret binary format) files in which uxtheme.dll relies on for the new window contro...

Not in the form of PKZIP, but Info-ZIP allows you to have a free ZIP implementation. The License is extremely liberal. Although it may not be the best compression format for being space-conservative, it is still very fast. Part of the reason is that the files inside a ZIP are compressed individually...

I've just got done playing with the NTFS-FUSE module from ntfsprogs -1.12.1. Boy, now this write support seems so far to be safe and solid. I've created directories, hard links, removed directories, removed files, created large files. After I was done playing, ran ntfsfix to trigger a CHKDSK at boot...

Ratteler: Writing a new NTFS file system from scratch would be an utter waste of time. As you have said, there's already the GPL Linux-NTFS, so why should we start reverse engineering it from scratch? Just because the current Linux-NTFS is by default read-only, that doesn't meant that's the limit of...

Compiling individual applications -- possible?

Hi there, I'm *very* new to programming in C, and so forgive me if this should be obvious. How do I compile individual applications included in ReactOS without needing to compile the entire distribution? For example, if I make a modification to Notepad, is it possible to compile only Notepad, withou...

ReactOS is an operating system that is designed to be like Microsoft Windows NT (that includes 2000, XP, 2003, and Longhorn/Vista) to the point of even being compatible with Windows NT drivers and applications.

Well, you'll probably have to port KHTML to be a native Windows library... I know that the KDE-Cygwin project has Konqueror working, but that requires Cygwin (and that's probably something ReactOS won't want to integrate -_-). In most areas, I would agree with using KHTML, however Gecko still has a ...

Sure, compatibility is nice... but so is customizability.

Not everyone that will be using ReactOS is going to want a bloated OS with useless applications like Windows does.
