Re: Language C

The problem is not the language used but the code. I mean, if someone use an exotic language, but made a clean code with commented for useful features, everyone doesn't care of the language used. But if you use a famous language, and made some mistake, causing BSoD, with no comment for a useless thi...

Re: Booting on laptops with only USB CD-ROM connections

Normal, the USB support is not totally implement yet, but there is a new driver only for test, if I am not mistaken.

Well, I thought SOOAHPAZ was real at first, but he/she/it is seeming more and more like a bot to me.
Not like bot, because he/she answers like a human being, but maybe is a spammer (it's not incompatible).

Re: Target Kernel

No it is not, and an unstable and partially implemented kernel is part of what is causing the driver compatibility issues. Changing the target won't magically resolve it... since you have to then finish the older components and then add new parts on top of that, with some changes in the old parts. ...

Re: Trying to get companies to support ReactOS

My understanding is that a goal of the ReactOS project is to allow drivers for Microsoft Windows XP/Server 2003 to work 'out of the box'. No special ReactOS-only drivers should be required. If at this time ReactOS lacks its own versions of necessary "dll files that are found within (Microsoft's ver...

Re: Google Summer of Code 2019 Ideas

ReactOS target to replace Windows, and Windows use Gecko. Actually, Microsoft doesn't use Gecko for anything. We're discussing mshtml.dll, which (in Windows) supplies Trident, the engine behind Internet Explorer. Sorry, but it's not totally true, Windows doesn't use Gecko it's true, but an house eq...

Re: Google Summer of Code 2019 Ideas

ReactOS target to replace Windows, and Windows use Gecko. Even Microsoft will use Chromium for the browser, the browser engine for "application" as no link to the "browser engine" of the browser itself, Windows use Gecko and will always use it for the "browser engine of application".

Re: ReactOs from USB?

It's not possible yet. The USB Driver is not completely finished and don't forget, ReactOS is in development (only unstable version).

Re: Default encoding in ReactOS

The problem is when we use a Asian software in an ReactOS (or Wine) with an encoding from Occidental encoding.
In Windows XP, there is an option "Install East Asian languages", but in ReactOS, it's greyed.
Maybe it's not implemented?

Re: Default encoding in ReactOS

Thank you for the answer.
Is it possible to change the encoding for a software?
In the compatibility menu, there is no this kind of option.
Ex: To run Chinese or Japanese apps, you have square characters.

Default encoding in ReactOS

What encoding ReactOS use it by default ?
For information, in Windows, it's in function of your language, and on Linux and MacOS (and Windows 10 if I don't made mistake), it's UTF8.

Re: Google Summer of Code 2019 Ideas

We need in priority (in this order) : a generic driver for Ethernet card, a good support of USB device (USB Key, WiFi Stick, Printer...), a Print Spooler, a WiFi Manager, and a ReactOS Update.

Re: Why ReactOS is Free ( Libre ) software?

I really don't want to see the acronym GLOSS (Gratis Libre Open Source Software) brought back from the dead. "Open" = unclosed "Gratis" is rarely used but exist in English, but "Libre" is not a English word (it's not in the English dictionary). Synonym of "Free" with "Libre" meaning: delivered, enf...
