So you aren't really saying anything. Of course something that is vulnerable to something and isn't patched against it is vulnerable. The relevant question between Windows whatever and Linux whatever, if people want to argue it, is whether one or the other is more vulnerable, either with or without patches. I think it should be clear though that Linux has fewer exploits that are actually being exploited.hortimech wrote:You are correct, but only as far as saying unpatched systems may be vulnerable to attack, this goes for any OS.
What problems are you referring to there?There should be hack team unique only to RPi, linux is linux but RPi has own problems too.
ReactOS is written mostly in C with some C++. ReactOS has already been ported to ARM, and a few others, just not the official branch yet.Heater wrote:ReactOS is brilliant and all but it's not going anywhere. As far as I can tell ReactOS is written in x86 assembler. It's never going to work on ARM or RISC V or anything else. Looks like a step back to the stone age of computing to me.

There are HW support issues with some systems for ReactOS. It will run on many systems, others it will hang. If it runs though it already runs a lot of stuff, and is more stable than I remember XP being.hippy wrote:I'd forgotten ReactOS. Last time I looked it must have been a decade ago when it seemed it had a long way to go. Looks like it still has given my Live CD hangs on "Loading system hive..." and needed a power-cycle reboot on a PC which I use to test Live systems which works fine with PIXEL X86, various other Debians and RPM-based systems, 32-bit and 64-bit. YMMV.
ReactOS was an interesting idea when floated back in the day, might still be for people who want a non-Microsoft 'XP experience' on an X86, but I suspect it's only going to have niche appeal. I think they missed the boat.
Only if it ran on a Pi and had some transparent means to run Windows X86 binaries would I jump up and take notice of it. I don't have a problem with Raspbian on Pi, and even if I did, I am not sure ReactOS would be the solution.
