Who would've thought living without broadband for a week would:
- Feel like you've lost a limb
- Result in 700+ emails from mailing lists being downloaded upon my return!
Although I haven't contributed much to the project, I just thought I'd say
I'm back... Been busy moving into a flat, and messing with wireless
networking. Shame I don't really get time to do coding at the moment :(
We're now in code freeze for 0.2.3. RC2 packages are available from
29&release_id=248136 (beware of line wrap).
Developers, please discuss any changes on ros-kernel before committing.
Please do not submit this as a news item to e.g. osnews.com, an
announcement will be sent next weekend when the release takes place.

I am runing vmware-4.5 workstation in Windoz-XP host.
I installed reactos-0.2.2.iso in vmware on a 500Mb primary
partition. The install completed fine. I removed the some of the
components from reactos vm-machine (usb, sound, floppy and cdrom)
and booted it:
- it presented the Freeloader V1.8.19 screen
- on selecting either of the options, the messgae box displays..
The cpu has been disbled by guest OS..
Is there a way to boot it in vmware??
Have you ever planed to have a "POSIX" root folder? i.e. a folder like
c:\POSIX which contains "bin" "usr" "etc" ...
And why don't you ship mingw/msys in that folder with all standard
reactos distributions ?
1) It is the first step for developing reactos in reactos ...
2) All unix-like applications can be installed there and will not have
to create each time their own POSIX tree.
3) It is to be ready to a massive port of gnu softwares that don't need
a full POSIX compliant OS.
4) It is mandatory for a future POSIX subsystem.
5) It is cool and sexy.

Excuse-me, I don't want to be outrageous and I know reactos is highly
beta but it is your "duty" to give the development tools use to compile
reactos (here mingw) and to program in it with a default release, isn't it?
Which linux or unix distribution come without a c compiler?
Even Apple do it !
