ReactOS name

Post by Andrei003 » Sun May 26, 2019 9:40 am

If I would want to change the name of the operating system, for example, change it to L-OS, where should I look ?

The name is no global once set variable. It's everywhere. Thus you need to check ALL of the code for it. And if you plan to release that code then, do not touch the copyright headers unless you want to be sued. ^^

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Obviously, ReactOS is still ReactOS, and I don't plan to release it anywhere. Is just a personal project. Thank you!

CockroachDB has such a rename script. ReactOS could be shipped with one too.
-uses Ubuntu+GNOME 3 GNU/Linux
-likes Free (as in freedom) and Open Source Detergents
-favors open source of Windows 10 under GPL2
