ARWINSS - THE RETURN???

Post by oldman »

Will we see the return of ARWINSS?

Aleksey Bragin has been doing a little updating in the last few months!

I would like to give it another try, because the current win32ss is very buggy (see this https://jira.reactos.org/secure/attachm ... 0%2730.MOV and issues CORE-7972, CORE-7873, CORE-7797).
Please keep the Windows classic (9x/2000) look and feel.
The layman's guides to - debugging - bug reporting - compiling - ISO remaster.
They may help you with a problem, so do have a look at them.

So, it can has the power to create millions of static image copies of itself in the background similar to Spider Solitaire?

One could say it's not a bug but a feature, thus?

ARWINSS never was dead. Aleksey is still working on it. Anyway, still the same answer. Its a hackish way to get a subsystem and does not follow the windows ways the slightest bit. That will cause hard to fix problems sooner or later in low level parts like driver support. But because of the fact that it sort of does a job similar to the windows one to the outside makes it more compatible for apps.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.
