ReactOS: Newsletter 103 - Late 2023 news
ReactOS gets initial UEFI and NT6+ application support
The ReactOS project has published another newsletter filled with news about their progress, and two things stand out. First, there's now initial support for booting using UEFI.
Work has been underway since the beginning of the year to transition FreeLoader, our default bootloader for ReactOS, to support UEFI on x86 and AMD64
#ReactOS "Open-Source Windows" Improving UEFI Boot, DirectX Work & NT6+ API Prep :reactos:
"Open-Source Windows" #ReactOS To See Improved GUI Setup/Installation :reactos:
Great news from the #ReactOS community! 🎉 ReactOS Deutschland e.V. has officially hired Hermès full-time to enhance the ReactOS #GUISetup over the next 5 months. 🖥️ A dedicated contributor since 2012, Hermès has been instrumental in various ReactOS components. His primary focus will be on the first-stage ReactOS GUI setup, aiming to provide an alternative to the existing #TextModeSetup. 🔄 Thanks to generous #CommunityDonations. 🙌 Exciting times ahead for ReactOS! 🚀
Turns out @enygmator has tackled this idea for #Redox with the primary intention to work with other OS' drivers, in particular from #Linux.
Can't wait for the future collective puzzlement when :rust: #RedoxOS :reactos: #ReactOS (and vice versa) frontend & backend bridges are in place :blobcatgiggle: [would be really cool anyways!]
@RenewedRebecca @awesomekling likewise! I've been following a handful of OS projects such as #GNU #HURD, #ReactOS and #Haiku for years, but #SerenityOS is in a different league. It's incredible what Andreas has built, and the community he is fostering. It's humbling and very heartening. Thank you, Andreas!
¿Cómo? ¿Un antivirus en #ReactOS? Efectivamente. AVG 7.5 y 7 funcionando bajo ReactOS, con todas las de la ley. Tiene mucho delay por el modo depuración y hay errores de posición de ventana, pero cumple su cometido. Encontrando varios virus.

ReactOS gets support for UEFI booting
After several months of (public) work, ReactOS can now use UEFI boot.
But that's the major changes planned for this PR. As of the state of this PR UEFI boot will operate as long as you have a serial port you should be able to test it.
Some more boot fixes will come down the road but this covers 85% of devices we've ran into.
In fact, they've even mad

- napárování pomocí appky od Netatma pro #Linux nefunguje, protože appka nefunguje
- #Windows mi nejdřív vůbec nenaběhly, takže jsem řešil alternativy
- ve #Wine appka naběhne, připojí se k internetu, ale nerozpozná, že je modul zapojenej do USB
- v #ReactOS virtuálu appka naběhne, připojí se k internetu, ale nerozpozná připojenej modul
- ve znovuzprovozněným virtuálu #Windows7 appka naběhne, ale nepřipojí se k internetu
Dneska jsem strávil 2 hodiny spravováním něčeho, co má fungovat out of the box. A nespravil 😁
Fakt tu krávovinu budu muset dotáhnout do práce a udělat to na firemním počítači...

"ReactOS was on a catnap longer than me, now that's impressive! 😹 Seems like they've shifted from a sprint to a purrfectly paced prowl, focusing on quality over quantity. Is it just me or is this starting to sound like my meal plan? 🐟 #ReactOS #QualityOverQuantity"
ReactOS makes progress on x86-64 port and more
The last ReactOS release is already twp years old, and there seemingly hasn't been any news since. Of course, the project has not stalled, and in a newsletter the project details the progress that's been made since 2021.
In the last year and during the beginning of 2023, the ReactOS developers and contributors alike are working on many part
The ReactOS team's latest newsletter (the first since 2021) explains why releases have slowed to a crawl, explores the status of the 64-bit port (it's almost usable, but won't run 32-bit apps), and more details about this open source Windows Windows NT clone. https://reactos.org/blogs/newsletter-102/
Let me remind everyone that the #ReactOS docs happen to be one of the best references for the Windows API anywhere—both documented and undocumented methods:
@drahcir_rahl who they should be complaining to is their hardware supplier and I think (even though it’s ironic) these kind of video’s even help for that reason.
These people expect the world to be as it should be and then complain (loudly) that it’s not the case. Just passive aggressive #idealists
Short intro: I'm Colin from Germany, a software and reverse engineer, who started as an application developer and joined the #ReactOS Project in 2007 to work on all parts of the OS stack.
Since then, I'm using Rust for new projects whenever possible, and bring the Windows and Rust worlds closer together. I'll likely talk about my latest Rust projects here.

Okay round 2- do you know of any x86_64 operating systems for desktops, laptops, etc, that *aren’t*;
Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD, ReactOS, Haiku, SerenityOS, Debian-Hurd, and Redox?
I’d like to expand my knowledge even further, please inform me if you know, or if I've missed anything!

Bit of a random request, but if anyone is willing to setup and share with me a working #ReactOS #VM, with working #sound and ideally working everything else (though I'm not too fussed about graphics), along with the exact settings used to create it, I'd be very thankful. No big project in mind, I just want a test VM to mess around with that's up-to-date and already installed so I don't have to blindly install it without any kind of speech.
@ChrisWere@linuxrocks.online For my basic needs, GNOME Boxes works great. I really only play with VMs to check out hobbyist OSes, other distros, etc, though. There are some problems with mouse capturing with #ReactOS and, iirc, Windows. I miss some conveniences and functionality of VirtualBox a little but really prefer using the more native, more FOSS option.
For #ScreenshotSunday, I present my #ReactOS #virtualmachine. It is a PITA to run under GNOME Boxes. I have a lot of mouse issues like the virtual cursor gets stuck in small areas because the actual cursor leaves the window. I cropped out acres of blue from the center of the picture and just left in the slightly more interesting bits.
I love the #Wine project in much the same way I love #ReactOS. It's a love based mainly on the academic proof-of-concept they both reflect and the accessibility they provide to others but neither project really benefited me much...
The Overmind reached out and invited me back to the Swarm. Using wine-staging, #StarCraft runs great. I even paid $15 for the Remastered version.
I wanted to test out the #ProtonMail Bridge but I couldn't get it to install under #Wine or a #ReactOS VM so I did the unthinkable: I installed Windon't 10 on a VM. After all that, it turns out it is only usable with ProtonMail Plus accounts. I might go with a Plus account paid monthly once the Bridge is available for #Linux to test it out. If it works to my liking, I could see myself switching my domain to ProtonMail instead of my current mail server. Of course, I'd really miss #Roundcube then.
