I've installed 0.4.12 on this same machine. This time it's quite a bit less stable. By this I mean the machine locks up every time I try to install a driver with SDI.
Try the daily downloads as time goes on. Stuff gets broken and stuff gets fixed.

Re: What would happen to the ReactOS project if Microsoft decided to make Windows open source, and will it ever happen?

What would happen to the ReactOS project if Microsoft decided to make Windows open source, and will it ever happen?

ReactOS would have a great deal of useful source code and a ready-made team to support Windows and take it the correct direction.

Re: 60 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

My English is straightforward and always precise. It is very 'English'. If it comes over in any way other than that then forgive me. As I said in an earlier post, I think others ascribe a tone to my posts that is not there. Perhaps it is because I write in an 'English' manner. I simply say it like i...

Relax, I am not attacking anyone. In actual fact, I think you just attacked me.

The list is valid, no changes required.

Re: 60 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

I think your problem is that you are defending Microsoft's intentions for Windows. Whereas we know what Microsoft's intentions are as you really don't need to be a soothsayer to divine those. ReactOS by its very name is a reaction to those intentions. Creating an open source operating system for the...

Re: 60 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

Nothing taken personally, none of your suggestions changes a thing. I don't think you really quite 'get it'. The only one I might change is number 57 if that is proven to be so. This functionality was removed in Vista and as far as I know has never been returned. Nothing changes, these are all still...

Re: Windows 10 now hides local account option

Well if it isn't true completely, then it is still true, trying to add a local user used to be as easy as following the "add a user" link. It isn't any more.

Re: 59 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

I do have 28. No metro apps bundled by default that consume more resources than needed -

but I think that deserves its own mention. I'll add that too.

59. ReactOS will never disable local accounts forcing you to sign up and give Microsoft your details in order to access to the o/s.

Re: EPIC WIN!

It looks as if it is working - Try creating a frame and some text, dropping a picture into it and then saving, re-open it. If it is then that's quite impressive. Quark Express was the industry standard tool for layout in the recent past.

Re: ReactOS 0.4.11 released

I so wish it was ready for use, I'm so fed up with Microsoft and their arrogance, your project is exactly what I'm looking for. If I ever win, like, a £100m jackpot, I'd fund you to get it done quick and proper, but the likelihood of that is close to zero, so I can only hope that you can manage to ...
