Re: 0.4.11 Testing

But DirectX only helps in the case of games and similar. It is not the same as the shell. So the Win32 for the stuff in Windows and DirectX/OpenGL for the fullscreen aps....

Re: updates integration

Why would you need an open source OS for Windows? Just run Windows. But I get what you mean, an open source Windows replacement. We are not there yet, but getting there. 1. You could manually copy over files. In that case, you'd need another OS. There is no automated upgrade system, yet. 2. You prob...

Re: Frederic Laloux "Reinventing Organizations" apply in ReactOS organization?

But from what you propose, the "cure" is worse than the "disease," IMHO.

I see nothing constructive in leaving this thread open.

Re: Target Kernel

A lot of the more common responses to this question can basically be summed up as "Remember how Duke Nukem Forever was in development hell for 15 fricking years because the designers kept adding more shit, then scrapping it all and starting over from the beginning? Like that time in June 1998 when ...

Re: Trying to get companies to support ReactOS

However, that said, the older drivers are no longer being made, and there is newer hardware without 2003 drivers.

And yes, if XP/2003 has it and we don't, in most cases, the devs will eventually write them if possible.

Re: Anonymous contributions apply in ReactOS project?

Let me share a parallel example for clarity, and in agreement with what Thomas said. I'm not hijacking, just using analogy. A common problem is fake schools, AKA diploma mills. Those are bad enough, but then some go through the trouble of deceiving by also creating fake accreditation boards. When th...

Re: Anonymous contributions apply in ReactOS project?

Would you like a dirty pull request? But even worse, would you like to see a dirty one you don't even know is dirty?

Re: Upload filters

I find regulations like these concerning, and I also find the non-civil attitude towards those at this forum who look at the larger picture of possible government collusion and misconduct to be concerning. If someone believes something underhanded is happening, I see it as their civil responsibility...

Re: Forks contributions back to ReactOS?

The Fusion above, I can't tell what was done and they have no pages discussing it. Besides, it would be incompatible as they use various forms of Pascal and Basic as well.

Re: Reasons for ReactOS Wiki

Was it PurpleGurl who placed a link to the Reasons for ReactOS page within the the About ReactOS page in the ReactOS Wiki? Whoever did that made a good choice, I believe. The About ReactOS page is the first page listed under the heading Documentation on the ReactOS Wiki's home page (front page). Th...

Re: Answer cut off on FAQ

Yes. It should at least say to go to the icon below it about how to report bugs. I did an inspect, and the text is actually missing. That is all that was inserted into the Q&A.

Re: Multicore

Yes Thomas, I somehow missed the ARM part... And I can see MPS as useful if the APIC HAL cannot initialize, but the ACPI HAL should obviously be the priority. Thanks, and my apologies for posting in this thread.
