Please calm down. Even if he's wrong about a thing or two, one shouldn't resort to personal attacks. It's much more constructive to just tell how things really are and leave it at that.

remember that's also still a problem in Linux, which still come with closed source sound driver and the open ones are even up to now a niche player. Sorry, but that is just plain incorrect. The vast majority of all sound drivers for Linux are open source and even in-tree (that is, they ship with th...

I cannot fathom how anyone could say any open source FS is better than NTFS, when quite frankly they all have the same break points. I wonder what you mean by this. Different file systems definitely have vastly different properties and "break points" in terms of data integrity (theoretical and actu...

It seems I have have already read everything you have. I am delighted to see that I have not missed anything regarding Linux-NTFS and NTFS-3G. Thank you for taking the time to gather all the links for everyone to see. I thought you mentioned about hearing of either the official Linux-NTFS software o...

Read the related mailing list and then you will see that it has only partial write support and mess around with NTFS (so that you have to boot WinNT to fix the partition MFT, etc.). I've been following the Linux-NTFS project quite closely and today is the first time I ever learned of NTFS-3G. Where...

Have to be verry careful here. Also, various code snippets and especially the autoconf/automake automated configuration, compilation and installation system have been ripped shamelessly from numerous different GNU and Gnome utilities and libraries so "Many thanks!" to all the people who have partic...

NTFS-Linux driver is GPL we could have a case of GPL breach. Basicly as soon as they release the binary to the public source should be aquirable. If he is the copyright owner (which is likely), he has every right to license his code as closed source. Not that I would not want his apparently paid wo...

Hmm, weird. Suddenly I ceased to experience the Firefox problem with QEMU - now I can browse all right even without moving the mouse around. Works well. For some reason the window won't minimize. However, I got this BSOD after browsing for a while: A problem has been detected and ReactOS has been sh...

I have now tested the new release both with QEMU 0.8.1 + kqemu-1.3.0pre8 with and without kernel code virtualization. I also tested with pure emulation, but the results didn't change except for dramatic difference in speed. Kudos to QEMU for the kernel code virtualization, it makes all the differenc...

Me suomalaiset olemme perinteisesti olleet sellaisia jotka eivät touhota oman kielensä tärkeydestä niin paljon kuin useat muut Euroopan maat. Minusta tämä on oikein. ReactOSin kääntäminen suomeksi ei ole merkittävä prioriteetti Suomessa tarjottavan kieltenopetuksen korkean tason vuoksi. Ehdottaisin ...

Maybe this (index = -1) isn't implemented in ReactOS yet. It most probably is since the error message is due to an exception fired by the VCL (Borland Visual Component Library). If ReactOS ignored the situation, the application might just fail silently. Actually, I'm not sure if ReactOS is even ask...

A DHCP client - I'm a net addict, my IP changes. Besides, I have failed to set up networking for ReactOS in VMWare (the instructions referred to a nonexistant menu option) and I am completely frustrated with editing the registry by hand with the buggy register editor app. Everything else is bearable...

Kyllä, ainakin minä. Lukeudun faneihin - itse käyttistä en ole kovin paljoa tullut kokeilleeksi muutaman minuutin testiajoja lukuunottamatta. Translation into English: Yes, at least I am one.
