Compatibility Database

Post by The_French_Rat » Tue Feb 26, 2013 11:56 pm

What happened to it? When I tried to access it, it returned a blue screen :-(
Just think of ReactOS as the XP beta, Whistler.

But it's in crappy HTML. You know I hate HTML.

Sorry.. let me restate that.
The Compatibility Database is in HTML.

‘Non-HTML’ Compatibility Database is not yet ready.

Let's not stop at HTML. HTTP is really old stuff, it's still version 1.1 (for ages). So we'd better get rid of it.

Well, at least it's not HTML5 with all its XML and object oriented JIT scripting. Its so over complicated its going to fall in on itself and accidentally the entire thing. I'll take a good old VT100 terminal connection any day. :lol:

But seriously, is the compatiblity database coming back, or is it gone for good?

in my opinion it should, if it comes back, a bit reworked, because there were too much crappy entries in it.
And a function that alerts testers for outdated reports.

I really do not mind what format the information is in or how it is presented. What I hate is when I go to examine the current state of the data and cannot.

I would say "Thank goodness the old site is working" but it is really not. What is the estimation for the repair of the newer site?

State specific issues if you have them. Vague/general statements aren't going to get any meaningful answer.
