Re: Can ReactOS preclude or inform users of open god mode back door access?

You would also install ReactOS into your HDD controller. Turtles all the way.

Windows store accepts Win32 apps too. You just need to package them correctly using the new AppX packager.

Russia is going to isolate its internet very soon. Switzerland is subject to the same copyright rules as EU. Andorra also follows EU rules closely, although it is not a member of it due to historical reasons. San Marino might work.

Interesting, couldn't they just run 32-bit programs on 64-bit?
They could, but it was a foreign code. There were math errors that did not surface using x32 code but did using amd64 code. It would require a comprehensive rewrite to eliminate all those.

Hopefully the nonprofit exemptions would apply to us.
Better safe than sorry. If we had upload filters now, this very post would classify as plagiarism and be censored.
