Hi

so many times this 64bits questions comes up

I will answers again
when gcc and binutils support windows 64bits ABI then we can consder to write a x86_64 bits kernel.

the good thing with NT it can support any arch. it is ntoskrnl and hal that need be change to support other cpu. and the loader
maybe I forget some part here now. But it is the three thing that need be partly change

and what about compiling those parts in a compiler or IDE that supports 64-bit binaries?

Name such compiler or IDE.

How does it help us? Not only this is 30 day`s demo, its also linux-only.

there is a non-trial version, but, as you say, it is Linux only
Useless, i think
sorry, i didnt see it before

Those are outdated/unsupported.

what OSes are devs using to compile ReactOS?

You made a mistake there linuxgx.

Linux and Windows are common. But the unix build system really is not Dependant on anything other than posix.

mac os x, linux, windows is the os reactos comåiles in, and we need a comåiler that work on all platform, only compiler that does it is gcc

partly change
humm.. shold Reactos not take a look for more Programmers to supporting
gcc to go faster to supporting 64Bit ... i think.. it is a advesing to Reactos too,
if Ros take a look for faster evulating gcc .... and support it too.. later.
If reactos running, can we have a partbypart working.. or side by side with
gcc... (think about, MS have Intel .. why not Reactos gcc... if i have right :) )
humm.. and later it is gcc so good to have fully supporting
of Reactos and back :D

so we are shold also take a look to gcc and try to make advesing under
the programmers .... or ?

Oh yeah, sure, another great idea... not only we do not have enough programmers for our own needs, now we should get more of them to help x64 gcc/binutils? Are you sane Blackrack? You do not mean this seriously...?

Blackcrack, if u are able to push gcc coders to release x64binutils faster then do so, but do not suggest coders of a project that needs nothing more than more coders to join another project. use your brain man!

For starters lets get ReactOs to a point where we can compile it ontop of it's self. I personaly use OS-X to compile ReactOS.

Blackcrack's got a point, we need to get our name out, and while I relize we dont have the power many groups have, but the fact of the matter is we have more potential than any other project. If we can work to advance our own ends on third party groups, we may attract those coders to our project.
