Hmm...

Well, but whats so different between Java locking and C locking. Java also uses native threads so you can't say it can handle thread-scheduling and locking itself, it also relies on the OS features. If such techniques are possible in java why should they not be possible in C? e.g. just tuning locks ...

W32k and locking - ideas

Hello! I have been very fascenated about the work w3seek puts into w32k to speed it up by replacing the fine-grained locking by setting a few global locks. Of course I am quite a much worse programmer than w3seek but my (underpowerd) head worries about scaliability facts. I understand that tradition...

No

Quartz/OSX does not use OpenGL for everything - they just render everything into OpenGL-Textures (with software loops!) - so not as cool as expected,

Hmm :-(

Well, its for Linux and just a syscall displayer. Between syscalls and API-calls there is a big difference and I am in doubt its possible to trace from syscalls back to the missing API-functions. Maybe there should be included big todo/unimplemented/fixme function dummies? lg Clemens @blight: Well, ...

That would be great!

Well that would be great.

But it also means that we would need to write pass-through-libararies for all our libs, as far as I know, since in memory application and dll are one thing, right?

Howto find out what prevents programs from working?

Hello! I would be interrested on working on ReactOS application compatiblility, and therefor it would be good to know howto get informations what prevents programs from working under reactos. Wine prints out "fixme"s or "unimplemented" messages, however under ReactOS apps simply quit btw. crash with...

Yes

Wine does translate DirectX into OpenGL only because they cannot use the native DirectX-Drivers manufacturers provide.
Create DirectX under ROS should be much easier than on windows.

PS: Cedega isn't GPL!

Hmmm?

Well, it seems you misunderstood me - some guys said that reactos needs some basic applications - and some other guys responeded that this would happen if VB would run on ReactOS. I just wanted to give an advice that betting on VB for ROS-Apps is not a very good descision. The 8088 is still alive We...

Well, Gambas is Linux-only for now and hasn't even been ported to Windows. Another problem you come arround with gambas is, that it relies on QT which also is not free software (windows version). There is already a basic-enviroment: Mono I do not understand whats so bad with it? Why does everybody w...

Hmmm...

I completly disagree because of: 1.) VB is dead. Even MS sees that and has created VB.NET which has nothing to do with VB6 - except some libraries and the same synthax. 2.) VB is prorietary-only. So no such program will be distributed with ReactOS since its not free software. Beside: As far as I kno...

Ah it's the linux attitude?... a really nice one. soo... you mean that the devs shouldn't care at all what the users wish to have? Because if it's open source, let the user program it themselves even though they have never programmed before. No, thats not the point. The point is that currently deve...
