Re: ReactOS, a possible alternative to Linux?

"People are not meant to uninstall Linux and use ReactOS instead; ReactOS is a replacement for Windows users who want a Windows replacement that behaves just like Windows." --from "ReactOS Exactly, "the about" is clear. For the moment it's always in development but it will be a Windows alternative ...

Making politics entering into an open-source project is always dangerous.
Why dangerous, it's open source no matter what they do, and if it's only financial partnership it's good and not risky at all ?

Governments Partnership ?

Hi,
I thought about the different governments budget restrictions and I have thought, why not make partnership with them to propose a real alternative to Windows ?
With the budget and the manpower of few governments, the development would be faster and the focus on the project would be bigger.

Re: ReactOS, a possible alternative to Linux?

Q: ReactOS, a possible alternative to Linux?

A: No. Because the project is alpha status for the moment. Maybe in the future, but don't forget, the goals of ReactOS, like Windows, are not the same as Linux.

Sorry for the misunderstood. Strangely I have been forgotten this possibility in the previous Windows, but it's true it's impossible now.

XP's taskbar was resizable vertically by hand
The vertical handly resize is just locked by default in the future Windows, but if you uncheck the box in the taskbar proprieties you can like before.

Re: Aspects of Vista/7/8/10 that should NOT be ported to React

The big mess in NT6 is the association by file extension and also by mime type.
Not because it's a bad idea, but because it's bad implemented and very good hidden in the register.

Re: My experiences using ReactOS as a server OS

I never thought that can already use like that in now days, I mean ReactOS is still in alpha.
It's a good feedback for the future utilisations of ReactOS.

I'm thinking, maybe the third-party LDAP softwares can also work. Whose know ?

Re: Read this if you've found software useful to ReactOS

If it's only for complete the missing features, the title is not good at all.
If you rename it like "Open source software to complete missing features" or something like that the misunderstood should be down.
