Thank you very much for the explanation!

Now it makes sense why it might not be a good idea...

anyone know if this program would be usefull and if mit licnese is compatble with reactos
It would be interesting to CONTACT THE AUTHOR in order to ask collaboration: it could benefit both projects !

...and don't forget these interesting links to other alternative solutions too: http://classicshell.sourceforge.net/alternatives.html

I thought that since the author puts no restrictions on use it was public domain; I see that I am wrong... but is it *only* because he won't release the sources?
Public Domain is basically opensource that can be used in ANY way you want. Freeware is, well, freeware :-) - closed source with zero cost.

I know it is not open, but free, it also is a driver for Win9X but maybe the developers of this thing could be help out to make our own NTFS driver.
http://www.diskinternals.com/ntfs-reader/

Did you allready contact them and ask for some contribution, maybe as another paid developer?

MS does also have a (semi-)free tool for reading ntfs in 9X but this wouldn't be a big help I think.

Could it be usefull to create a test-suite with use of such tools?

EDIT:

fond an open source tool that can rescue data from ntfs I don't know if the code is usefull but you can take a look: http://thewalter.net/stef/software/scrounge/

Since ROS already implements CRT, I'm not sure of usability of alternative CRT implementations based on smaller size, but at least I checked that those haven't been posted here before:

- http://code.google.com/p/sumatrapdf/sou ... readme.txt (all following are linked from this)
- http://code.google.com/p/omaha/source/b ... %2Fminicrt & http://www.benshoof.org/blog/minicrt/- same thing on multiple places... which license? can't find out, but it's still opensource
- http://f4b24.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/extra/smartvc9/ - not much information
- http://synesis.com.au/software/cruntiny/ - last update on 2003


Is any of this of any use to ROS?

Small and fast, uses SSE2 and up to 4 CPU cores
High quality resampling filter, preserving sharpness of images
Basic image processing tools can be applied realtime during viewing
Movie mode to play folder of JPEGs as movie

I suggest we include the Open Dyslexic font. I'm sure many users with dyslexia would appreciate it. It's licensed under Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. I haven't been able to determine if that's compatible with ROS or not. Can anyone verify? Here's their license page.

I might have found something interesting: a paint program called NKPaint. It uses MFC, but supplies some of its own dlls. At the time of this posting, I have not tested this program yet, but I may do so soon whenever I can find the time.
Features:
Similar to Microsoft Paint in the looks and function, with a few functions unusable at the moment
Based on CxImage/GDI+

Programming Languages:
C, C++

Licence:
zlib/libpng License (GPL-compatible) at http://www.gzip.org/zlib/zlib_license.html

Homepage:
NKPaint: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nkpaint/
CxImage: http://sourceforge.net/projects/cximage/

NKPaint can't be part of the base installation of ReactOS because MFC libraries can't be distributed out of Microsoft's stuff, but it could be installed in ReactOS by the user (it could be listed in the Download! app). An app candidate to be part of the installation of ReactOS must be full compilable by ReactOS supported build tools. MFC sources can't be part of ReactOS source code. (Please, correct me if I'm wrong).

Even though thanks for sharing. ;)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think we already have Paint clone here.

Correct, ROS source code already contains an mspaint look-alike written in pure C. One example screenshot taken from help is here.

If open source in a standardized font source format, yes.

The font is .otf so I'd assume it'd work in ROS. :)

The license is Bitstream, but I'm talking to monotype to see if I can make it MIT or SIL. in either case, I plan on removing the CC license. The idea is to make it as free as possible. :) Thanks for the mention.
