What /g/ thinks about ReactOS? Its is good it has fatal flaws? It can replace windows in medicore gaming pc?
>What /g/ thinks about ReactOS?
It has potential. It is under active development and "visibly" gets better with each major release.
>Its is good it has fatal flaws?
Nothing I saw so far. What shortcomings it has can be rewritten and they did some big rewrites in the past.
>It can replace windows in medicore gaming pc?
Definitely not. Driver support is a problem in terms of you cannot run the drivers themselves. The OS itself is still alpha and not stable.
It's a vaporware/scam project. They parade it here and there asking for donations/investor money because "they have potential", only to squander it.
It's 20 years in development and it was never usable on real hardware. Most of it's code is either useless rewrites of notepad.exe and explorer.exe, or code pulled in straight from WINE. They don't have and never had any hardware experts.
Linux is 30 years in developments and widely used on mobile phones, and somewhat used on desktop by some nerds. It boots on real hardware and runs WINE, so it's a better Window replacement than ReactOS.

Why have computers diverged into these two extremes with no middle ground?
ITT: We talk about plain text files, and what future (if any) they have in years to come.
Is as low as we can go now just minimal HTML?
Plaintext isn't going away.
HTML is not a good alternative because it has too much formatting and is hard to be read without a browser.
Markdown isn't rich enough to be worth using instead of plaintext.
Even if a HTML-markdown mix does come along, plaintext would never completely go away because it's plaintext.
But by contrast HTML's extra formatting isn't an issue on modern hardware, and everything with a screen has a browser but not everything with a screen is capable of 80 columns of comfortably read text (smartphones).
When was the last time you saw someone upload a text files as just a text file? Even "minimal" sites still use HTML for the above reason.
Make your OS look good without going completely minimalistic.
Explain me the macbook hate, please. It's a good, lightweight machine, perfect for text editing, web browsing. The display is decent to watch movies. It holds charge better than any other laptop on the market, and the touchpad is pretty comfy.

It's a laptop, not a power rig. It's not supposed to play gaymes.
now that mpc hc is dead, where do we move on?
what can you tell me about it?
I used it from 2002-2008. It was a lot of fun, but eventually you'll come to realize what a time sink it can become and switch to something like Ubuntu. If you were running it on production servers you'll come to realize what a mistake that was too.
It's fun for a good while though and a great way to learn deep Linux skills. I first started using Gentoo when I was working for a small business IT consulting shop which eventually led me to a 10 year stint at a large enterprise as a Linux sysadmin. I'm now a senior systems engineer at a major tech company and make over $140k working remote from the Midwest. I have Gentoo to thank for all of this.
Does non-shit forum software exist out in the wild? Just want an absolutely minimal framework that:
>isn't an imageboard, textboard, etc
>allows for anonymous posting
>doesn't have any cancer social media integration
>flat design, minimal UX/UI
>able to disable avatars and other identifying features
Bonus points for:
>zero PHP use
>integration of key exchanges for access
Really don't want to hack something together myself. Picture not really related, I don't think.
What are you working on, /g/?
Old thread: >>61919998
Do you share / GitHub your code, /g/? Why / why not?
If it's something that is useful for me, it's likely to be useful for at least one other person out there. Especially if its related to a somewhat niche technology where there aren't any free or open source alternatives.
If requesting purchasing advice, please provide your country and what carrier you will be using it with, along with wanted features, budget and size.
