Re: ROS 0.4.10 running on a ThinkPad T430 with Btrfs and Ethernet working [video]

Do the BTRFS tools get installed
This is not a Linux distribution here...
Btrfs-tools has a Windows port.

Re: ReactOS full UTF-8 support?

This is GPLv3, ReactOS is GPLv2. We cannot distribute them together.

Re: Are GPT disks and SSD drives supported?

SSDs do work, but ReactOS is not optimised for them.

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.

Embeddable Servo is not yet ready. After it is ready, we could use it.

Re: Windows Kernel-Mode Drivers written in Rust

Kernel written in Rust may exploit the WinAPI fact HANDLEs do not need to correspond to actual memory addresses.

Re: Driver loader for bypassing Windows x64 Driver Signature Enforcement

Not needed, as ReactOS is open source, you will already be able to disable signature checks. Signature check is not part of API contract, it is part of the security model.

This would leave just the wiki for the ReactOS org itself to monitor, right? (I exclude the forum because one cannot upload content here, just post links.)
The forum will also need something like Turnitin or Copyscape.

but it looks like some people actually want to enforce this kind of thing.
Yes, they want to censor us but cannot call it censorship because it is "bad". They use a different name as a disguise. In this case, upload filters. Copyright itself had been a form of censorship when it first originated.

Are you aware that Android on x86 also boots using UEFI? These devices are viable targets for ReactOS mobile too.

Re: Upload filters

Upload filters will unfortunately hurt us. We already have necessary background checks to avoid copyright infringements, yet the proposal does not have safe harbour provisions requiring a low false negative, high false positive upload filter (even though it does not mention the words "upload filter"...

Re: Upload filters

Newcoming developers will need to fight "copyright" filters. It is related to developers in that regard.
