Re: Best web browser for ROS is Mypal?

Have you tried newer versions of those browsers? Firefox 52.9 was the last to run on XP and the MyPal version of RAPPs seems to be a really outdated version. There has been many updates since then.

Re: ROS applications

I am not sure what you mean. Everything here is either built from scratch by the ReactOS developers or is used from third party tools. The big third party tools ReactOS uses are Wine, uniata, fastfat, winbtrfs, and acpica. Then there are other, more smaller libraries ReactOS uses, such as mbedtls, l...

Re: Fix of the Week

Well no one has posted anything in here in a long while, so I will go ahead and see if we can start this back up again. Not necessarily a "fix", but I was quite happy when I came on earlier and saw this. Latest commits from Eric Kohl added the start to DNS caching and flushing. https://github.com/re...

Re: ReactOS 0.4.12 installer troubleshooter pc?

ReactOS targets Windows XP/Server 2003, and FF 69.0.3 doesn't support it. Try using an older build of Firefox, check out Applications Manager shortcut on desktop. But why clone XP and server 2003? its it very old? Many hardware\software did not works longer in XP. And its a issue (big) issue with s...

Re: Elite Dangerous/Star Citizen

But the true question is,... ...can ReactOS run Duke Nukem Forever ? If it works under Windows XP, you can try running it under ReactOS, with "Mesa 3D" installed. Just make an .iso with the game and Mesa 3D to mount it under VirtualBox, QEMU in ROS. Do you have any link to download this game demo? ...

Re: Would Microsoft replace NT Kernel with Linux kernel?

Also, what have you contributed to ReactOS? by the way, wanna help me to contribute to ROS? donate (or just lease) to me Pinebook Pro and I'll try to bring ROS on it up (it's 64 bit ARM). it's 200$. ;) :lol: It is a nice cheap laptop, probably enough to run ReactOS. I just run it through a VM to te...

Re: Would Microsoft replace NT Kernel with Linux kernel?

Do you guys think that Microsoft would replace NT Kernel with Linux Kernel in future versions of Windows to come? Any possibility? that would be the stupidest move in the industry of all the times. hard to say what everybody in MS should smoke and in what amount to make that decision. it would be s...

Re: I want to support, but first I need to know if I can...

Yeah, this will still take a while before you can try such things. Right now best success with drivers are the Windows 2003/XP ones. VMs except QEMU are not really working. OEM install would be modifying thwe source in our case I fear. These support is there and we have a few for selection,so if yo...

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 stil...

Re: 60 specific reasons for wanting ReactOS:

1. Safe browsing in a virtual ReactOS sandbox (Firefox) Windows 10 now has a Sandbox so this isn't really a difference anymore. 9. A platform that I can build into any x86/AMD64 computer by default. What does this even mean? I have had many systems with Windows and never had any issues with x86/AMD6...

Re: ReactOS built in C# (crazy idea)

The opinion mentioned above is still valid and will not change C# is a toy for user mode and not for a OS kernel/core SharpOS and Cosmos would disagree with that. However, I agree ReactOS should stay with C/Assembly. If anything, I would rather see it rewritten in Rust or Go. C/C++ is the most popu...

Re: ReactOS on my notebook!(USB storage worked)

YouTube doesn't support all CC licenses (= "stole" your contents). Yes. That´s a disadvantage of YouTube, it has some kind of propietary licence: they own your content. The idea it to be under Creative Commons paradigm licence for everyone. Corporate YouTube does not comply with CC thinking. Youtub...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cuwWOGkhV8 Could you show more videos of your tests? Could you also upload them in vimeo? Why Vimeo? YouTube is perfectly fine. 1. Vimeo is ad free. While most people have adblockers these days, on really old systems, ad blockers have a reverse effect and actually s...
