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.

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...

Re: ReactOS-Qubes integration

I am unable to test Qubes due to faulty UEFI in my machine (If I enable VT-d, it resets itself back to disabled even though CPU is capable). I called for someone else to test for that reason.
