One-Core API is a fraud

:!: Well it seems that this 'project' uses native Windows 7,8,10 dll files, so it is a fraud and a great risk to ReactOS project to use it.
It´s a shame. It could be a real Open Source compatibility layer like 'kernelEx' ,but .... It was too good to be true.

We are warned now to ignore it. :!:

You were warned to ignore it, several times, by several people. Please stop bringing it up.

Have you not noticed the fact that he has a fork of the Windows Research Kernel in his Respo? The ReactOS team does not want anything to do with him or One Core API.

I would call for the ban hammer since he keeps bringing this up, but that's not my call.

In this case I put the hammer aside and used a big scrubbing brush. If someone adds it again, I can still grab the Mjølnir. ^^

I overlooked the tree again. (Especially headers)
One-Core API does not seem to include dirty code, so it's no problem. Using ReactOS and Wine code.
However, author has a fork of WRK.

We're thinking wrong. One-Core API is not a problem of its own, and the fork of WRK is in another branch.

Resolution: It doesn't seem not a fraud. We can contact to remove WRK, although.

Of course it's not a "fraud", reactosuser7 doesn't know what that word means. However, it is dirty code. It violates the United States laws of reverse engineering. The person who implemented it is also the person who reverse-engineered it and they cannot prove otherwise, this directly violates the ReactOS guidelines. This is not worth discussing.

That´s does not change the fact that is a useless project to consider here.

Nobody's considering it but you. I was making a correction so maybe in the future you know why things like this are bad. Don't try to correct me like that.

You are right. Sorry for this waste post about 'One-Core API'. :roll:

Where is the dirty code except WRK? I missed if there's any.

It is not a matter of fact of if one core API uses dirty code, but more of the fact that the developer is involved with illegal code, even if it not with one core API. Using one core API might mean there has to be some collaboration with the developer and the ReactOS would look bad if he ever got caught and might even temporarily shut down to a investigation to make sure ReactOS didn't use illegal code. Anyways, it looks like all he did was just jumped ahead into the future compared to where ReactOS is, as it seems he just took wine and win32apis and made it into his project. Eventually ReactOS will reach this point in time (looks like some of this is already being done on some PRs in GitHub), but first we have to do ReactOS working.

I would highly suggest deleting DGMurdockIII post asap.
