But I've noticed that even for trivial tasks, ROS sometimes uses 100% of CPU and takes a long time to get past it, such as loading a file larger than about 32k into ROS-Notepad. What does ROS Task Manager say about this player's CPU use? I'll bet it's spiking at 100%.
Yeah, as soon as the interface popped up it got to 100%. One of the problems with using an alpha Operating System, I guess.

ROS feels so slick otherwise, it always surprises me when it does that. Oh well, one of the many improvements yet to come.

Basically a normal video ended up looking like a slide show of random frames. Minor win I guess.

Edit: It might have something to do with the memory of the virtual machine I was using, but I don't know.
This is because ReactOS runs DOS applications on an emulated CPU core, rather than natively on the host CPU, and emulation has a lot of processor overhead. (Running it inside a VM is even slower, an emulator within an emulator.) For the vast majority of old DOS programs this is totally fine because they need hardly any CPU power, but a program like QV that does realtime video decoding is more demanding. The advantage of this approach is that it will work equally well when ROS supports 64-bit or ARM CPUs in the future, whereas Windows has had to drop DOS support in 64-bit versions. There are plans to make the CPU emulation faster as well, the focus has been on making it work correctly first.

Thanks for the info.

Well, does it actually work, aka. connect to remote Windows clients and can show their desktops remotely?

What's Partial about that? It looks pretty Epic and non-failing to me. ;)

It seems because of Left or Right Clicking does not work, so it is partial epic win only.

While using remote desktop to do something beyond monitering a remote client running software may be difficult (do mouse keys pass through?), often when I try helping others with problems on their pc ill just open some way to view their pc's desktop and instruct them on how to do it themselves. Helps them actually learn how to fix broken things, and realise computers arent that scary.

I'll consider this a win for ROS, even feature-incomplete as it is.
