Re: Bundling of firmware in ReactOS update.

Unless someone is close to releasing a ReactOS Update client and server, this discussion is a bit premature, isn't it? I don't expect to see a ReactOS Update feature until some years after ReactOS has been released for production use. Maybe never. I expect that ReactOS will always require a skilled ...

Re: Hi to everyone!

I searched the ReactOS forum using the search string "82810". All the results returned that weren't part of this topic were from a 2004 topic named "Hi to everyone". The first post in that topic appears to be a word-for-word copy of this topic's first post.

Referring to someone else's work without so much acknowledgement as a link to the web site you took it from shows a lack of culture. " Let us stand on each others' shoulders; not each others' toes.

Re: Disable "Drag and Drop" option

...I meant "(is there) an option in ReactOS or Windows XP to (do) that and if yes where is it?". To answer such a question, I search the ReactOS web site first. If I cannot find an answer (or even a clue) there, I search the Internet. I assume that the ReactOS way to do things is usually similar to...

Re: Your most wanted feature for the next Hackfest?

...the title ... now says "Your most wanted feature for the next Hackfest." Using "2019 Hackfest" instead of "next Hackfest" would have avoided the confusion. I expect that after the 2019 Hackfest, maybe years after this thread is long dead, some necroposter will start speaking to this thread about...

Re: Disable "Drag and Drop" option

ReactOS's design target is Microsoft Windows 2003, which is very similar to Microsoft Windows XP. To maintain compatibility, ReactOS often implements a feature in a very similar way or uses a comparable registry entry. I searched the Internet and found this article. This article and its comments wil...

Re: Fraizeraust celebration?

The proper way to get a thread removed that you yourself started is to use the "Report This Comment" button for the post you made that began the thread. (That button looks like a button marked with an exclamation point. It is next to the "Quote This Comment" button.) Indicate the reason for the dele...

Re: Do Visual Studio, Chocolatey, Cygwin work well from a ReactOS host?

raksharjun, thank your for your interest in ReactOS. I call your attention to these words that appear at the top of the ReactOS.org web site's home page: They're talking about ReactOS 0.4.9 ( even if we're just Alpha ) (emphasis added) Alpha, ALPHA, ALPHA! Using ReactOS as a build bot is an interest...

Re: Governments Partnership ?

Whatever government would get access to a stable OS faster. That is the only reason really, that anyone would want to give to ReactOS, because they believe in the project and want it to be available for daily use ASAP. Also, some may want to give for the warm fuzzies or to get kudos from the public...

Re: possible crowdfunding project?

Do Intel and AMD still make single core x86 processors suitable for PCs? Today, every PC CPU chip seems to be at least dual core. If motherboard hardware (with drivers) and BIOS components that support Microsoft Windows XP are still in production, then somebody might still be producing a PC motherbo...

Brace yourselves for exclamations of "Are you ReactOS people crazy? BtrFS but no NTFS?!" I wrote an answer to these questions suitable (I hope) for a FAQ: Crazy like a fox, perhaps.

Re: Target Kernel

Back in 2014 there was much discussion about the ReactOS Project's future course as Microsoft's end of support (EOS) date for Microsoft Windows XP and Server 2003 products approached. The ReactOS developers (devs) kept their own counsel. Their consensus was, apparently, don't panic. The devs kept Se...
