Topic: 16 bit C compiler for Win16 / DOS / OS/2 subsystems
Replies: 29

The compiler of choice would be mingw32.

Please note Wine runs Win16 runtime build on 32 bit linuxs by using a 32 bit complier. Ie the emulated libs would be calling fake internals writen in 32 bit. Basicly look at how dosemu does things and Wine. Note dosemu runs a real dos inside a control system. So any complier you can get you hand on ...

Sorry to drop a Vaild point.

Number one NTFS Driver's are not required reasons. If the driver system is good enought it will be able to load windows NTFS driver and use it. So no point developing anything more than a read only NTFS driver because people need read write will be able to use the real driver due to having a licence...

Quick and Dirty Operating System.

This was the first name of dos ie QDOS Bill Gates renamed it to sell it to Disk Operating System. Most History buffs of Os just don't except the OS rename and just drop the Q.

package manager Yes do it this way.

Package Manger provides a controlled way of doing updates without breaking the system.

Note user does not need to see the difference. Reactos Update reports what parts.(Packages to update)

Update manager merged with browser is just a really bad idea. Provided website with way to much access.

Nop this is not Plex86

Xen is alot different. Plex86 runs inside linux improves boch performace. Xen is its own kernel. It does the system swaping between the os's. It required the system drivers that are compad. Note Reactos running inside Xen would let users switch between reactos and a linux with min peformance damage ...

Just a word of warning about C++ from g++

gcc 3.4.2 is verry strict on types and other missmatches in g++. A common problem I have had building the explorer section. Note microsoft complier and gcc 3.3.3 are less strict. Just like some C code will not build on current gcc because it was not updated. This is normally missing ; that were not ...

I would say mozilla.

Save you some coding.

Note extend mozilla link up with webadmin a nice improvement for linux as well as reactos.

Note mozilla provides most of the missing functions.

Unix is always compatible with Linux. Nop

Unix is always compatible with Linux. I will drop a hammer here. Unix is not always compatible with linux. Sun and FreeBSD build a compad section to let linux binarys work. And linux has compad sections to let Unix stuff work. Internals is where everything goes pair shaped ie /dev and /proc director...

Back to the subject

Linux is the best os that is free that runs windows programs at moment. The reasons. If programs don't work inside the Wine emulator sometimes the update to CrossOver Office or WineX fix the problem but this costs. And if that still does not fix it linux programs are around that do most tasks. React...

The Point Xming has is.

X11 server is provided without requiring any out side libs ie cygwin. Unix software has a subsystem ie most is all ready emulated ie the psx section. So programs on linux/unix most likely can be build without need for emulation section. Of course programs interfacing with drivers will still need wor...
