I mean keep Wine code but remove Wine.
That's what ReacOS does. There is no ‘Wine’ in ReactOS, just Wine code. :)

Why would I adopt Rust when I'm trying to figure out how to get a rust (fungus) infestation out of my yard? Evidently, the more rust you collect in one place, the less will remain in other places. All changes in nature are such that inasmuch is taken from one object insomuch is added to another. So...

Re: Useful git settings

Unfortunately some people will not want to learn yet another tool.
Unfortunately, yes; I remember that some ReactOS translators had difficulties with creating patches.

Perhaps a Web frontend to "git bisect" on the ReactOS site could help.

Re: Useful git settings

Some people are hunting for regressions by downloading and installing ISO images from iso.reactos.org . Better to keep them numbered sequentially / monotonically (like bootcd-73817-dbg.7z or bootcd-201702171641-dbg.7z). Also, it's good to know what kind of changes were made for each build. If you hu...

Re: Useful git settings

The point with the numerical commit IDs is that, on SVN, when you see e.g. "commit r73245" and "commit r61232", you know automatically without consulting the history, that r61232 came before r73245, and you can find them really easily in the history list. Yet another solution is to use timestamps f...

Re: Useful git settings

Of course, you can try numbering the commits in the commit messages themselves, but of all the Github projects I know that did it, none do it anymore; they've all dropped the approach, probably because it doesn't bring much use. Sequential IDs are quite useful for numbering ISO images and test resu...

Re: C Coding Basics

You mean like an illegal operation or a protection error? Yes, and it can be caught by SEH… I'm not aware of how the memory is laid out in protected or virtual mode, nor am I aware of what accesses requires Ring 0 or what can be done in Ring 3. Both kernel and user-mode code runs in paging mode, wh...

There is no need to be negative if it's not needed or warranted, and as far as the coding goes, imho there is little to be critical of, seen the complexity of coding a complete OS from scratch and the fact it's alpha. It's because people have much freedom in choosing ways to help. Otherwise, the co...

A long time ago, somebody on the Chinese forum said that there is not necessarily lack of people who want to help, but a lack of an organizer.

Of course, it is not to blame somebody personally, but just to comment on this ridiculous / sad state of things…

I like them, too. :) As a Forum / ML (and not IRC) user, I have only a rather vague idea about the “inner side” of the project. These stories give some insight into it. :)
