SwiftShader by default in ROS?

From these posts: https://www.reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=16745 https://www.reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5802 Are there plans to official have a compiled build of SwiftShader included in ROS, at least in RApps? Here´s from one of the posts: https://www.mediafire.com/file/iz5yz8koz...

Re: TheRegister: "ReactOS ‘a ripoff of the Windows Research Kernel’ claims Microsoft kernel engineer"

This incident will make ReactOS famous (I hope)! Or at least make it known by more people...
And new developers and useful people will join to this project.

Re: TheRegister: "ReactOS ‘a ripoff of the Windows Research Kernel’ claims Microsoft kernel engineer"

It seems that finally now there are some problems to ReactOS...but I hope that they will be irrelevant...
ReactOS is Open Source and it can be easily probed that the code is clean and original, right?

Otherwise how can anyone probe that the code written is "ilegal" ?

Re: AutoCAD 2004 doesn't work

I've been experimenting with reactos on nightly builds. Then I put it on virtualbox. reactos Version 0.4.13. I have a spare AutoCAD 2004 cd that belongs to my father. Then I tried to install it on reactos, but it doesn't work. I have tried to launch setup.exe and acad.msi, but nothing appears. I ha...

Re: A Superscalar Out-of-Order x86 Soft Processor for FPGA

Eventually a ReactPC would be the goal. Seems the best of the Open Source world. :D If Toronto knows of this project, like say someone from ReactOS development contacts the author of the piece, and explains how desirable a finished single core 32 bit X86 open source product would be. We could have ...

Re: A Superscalar Out-of-Order x86 Soft Processor for FPGA

This is a link to the online seminar at Stanford University about a superscaler FPGA open source 32 bit X86 single core processor design. He doesn't seem to have fully completed it, on the other hand, he is implementing an open source single core 32 bit solution, which only consumes about 7 percent...

Don't you just understand what binarymaster has written and you quoted? JIRA is **ONLY** for bug-reports !!!!!!!!!!!!

JIRA is not the right place for publishing investigation progress.
And using "epic" tag?
Here´s an example: https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-15603

Re: Windows XP Silver theme?

Interesting idea! What about other themes that lets say were made during Windows XP's era? like for example those from Stardock Wincustomize site would they have a potential to run eventually? Could you search all possible Windows XP msstyles and test them in ReactOS, and publish your progress on J...

There is no need to clone XP themes, just copy over Luna.msstyle file from your genuine Windows XP installation into the same folder in ReactOS.
If you someone can do original .msstyles to ReactOS, he or she should do them and let us know about...

It would have been good if they'd contributed to ReactOS's development.
Any contact form, email, twitter, or something?
At least these programmers should know about ReactOS, even if they won´t or can´t help. As I see, there is nothing to loose trying to contact them.

CERN has a fleet of programmers, that can also contribute to ReactOS.
Are they aware of ReactOS?
If not someone should advice them...

For example, ProtonMail is a private encrypted email service from CERN help, it could be so useful to have their help to ReactOS development.

Re: I finally figured out how to make Win7 not suck; might be ready to say goodbye to XP

When ReactOS will be in beta stage with enough advanced Windows XP and some Windows 7 features, I hope that the dream finally comes true: ReactOS be ready to replace MS Windows XP once for all.

Re: Just re-built my 17 year old computer... how to start ReactOS testing?

As far as I am aware, NTFS is read only, there is no write for it yet in ReactOS. It seems that thanks to Trevor Thompson´s work , some write support exists in ROS. Before you build ReactOS, you must enable NTFS write-support if you want to test it. This is because write-support is still experiment...

I have an hard drive partitioned Btrfs for partition C: and Ext4 for partition D:
Is ReactOS installed on your hard drive (BtrFS partition) toguether with ext4 partition?
I had problems booting ReactOS when an ext2/3/4 partition exists in dual boot.
