Re: SAMBA, Cygwin, and appcompat

Is the ultimate goal being functional and API compatible, or being indistinguishable including replicating major vulnerabilities that were ultimately eliminated It is something between the two, according to previous discussions. The problem is we just do not know how much we can modify or extend Wi...

Re: Wayland gives ReactOS new life?

Wayland on ReactOS might be usable after ENIW, to run native Linux GUI applications.

Re: REACTOSE - Proposal for annual ReactOS conference

Yes, the ReactOSers would showcase the ReactOSe (the sweet parts of ReactOS, like fructose of fruits) in ReactOSe.
We could follow a format similar to WinOps, the Windows DevOps Conference.

I have the necessary and sufficient coding skills, but lack the necessary time (it's very difficult to be a combined research&administrative assistant in one university and doctoral student in another, and more difficult to find a suitable contiguous timespan to make significant (non-toy) contributi...

Re: Possibilities For NTVDM and other Sub-Systems

It is a future plan. ReactOS will/is going to (read whatever way you wish) have several distributions. ReactOS CORE is the name for a distribution including two common Windows userlands: win32, .NET. ReactOS Minimal is the most minimal usable subset of ReactOS, and its scope is yet to be determined;...

Re: Possibilities For NTVDM and other Sub-Systems

ENIW, unlike Wine or WSL 1, would delegate to Linux using a kernel-mode subsystem, and unlike WSL 2, will not use virtualisation, would instead use thunking to user-mode instance of Linux (this is no problem for us, because both are licensed under GPL 2). ELF interpretation is just a part of it. Thi...

Re: Windows 10 now hides local account option

Great feature, let's see if we can implement that in ReactOS as well. What would we use as the online account provider? reactos.org accounts? you just have to click the text left to the button to NOT use a MS account. This started in R1909, so you might not have encountered it yet. This is from Red...
