Re: Programs that heavily rely on NT 6.x APIs list

Should we? Instead should ReactOs not just implement all the NT5 APIs, then all s/w that uses NT6 APIs will simply fail.

The NT6 APIs can be implemented one by one.

We don't need a list of Programs that heavily rely on NT 6.x APIs we just need a list of programs that fail on ReactOs.

Re: 58 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

No, you are not a thorn in my side in any way whatsoever. That was an addition suggested by a member here. I think we'll leave the list as it is at the moment.

I'd like to add this to my 50 or so reasons why users should run ReactOS or why ReactOS will eventually be better than windows..

no, the century before that ;)
Brass locks, wrought iron clasps, a display projected on the inside of a large dark camera, a loaded flintlock held to the head of the user in case of mis-use. Sounds like my sort of computer.

Re: ReactOS recovers from a low memory situation...

In the VMS o/s, some of its architecture WNT copies, the concept of the working set was matched by values for WS_MAX and WS_EXTENT that allow working sets to extend to a finite max for all processes/users. I suspect that it is the lack of these sorts of controls in Windows that allows memory trackin...

Re: Something for your lawyers...

Waking an old thread from the dead - I didn't think it appropriate to create a new just for a couple of related lines. I note that the makers of Flow "a FOSS functional language with C-family syntax" have just elected to keep the name despite the fact that Facebook have brought out a product with th...

Lets' package up RAPPS and offer it as a download

This has been said before I know but I think it makes more sense now that some bits of ReactOS work. I know it is an overhead but I think we should start to package up RAPPS and other discrete components from ReactOS and offer them in usable form as a download by themselves. With a prominent ReactOS...

Re: ReactOS recovers from a low memory situation...

I didn't really mean now. :) What I meant was, is there an intention to replicate Windows and its limitations in this respect or do the devs see an opening where the recovery from an out of memory situation could be handled by better programming at the kernel level, improved handling of virtual memo...

ReactOS recovers from a low memory situation...

Just a thought. Here's hoping that ReactOS recovers more gracefully from low or out of memory conditions than Windcows in general. I was just running Yahoo widgets and an associated editor, the VB6 IDE, thunderbird, palemoon and firefox as well as all the usual background utilities on Win7 in 4gb RA...

The spying and unoptimized options of Windows 10, it's not paranoia, it's a fact and it use lot of resource.
I'll note that too! :)
