Ever since the IGG campaign was over, working on the ReactOS Community Edition has been one of our main priorities. Today we make another promising step towards achieving that goal.

A Year's Progress: NTFS

Written by

NTFS is Microsoft's proprietary file system for Windows. It has been the default file system on Windows for over twenty years. As such, its support is vital for interoperability with the drives that have all your data on them.

A Year's Progress: NTVDM (Part 1)

Written by

Hi everyone, this is another update in the "A Year's Progress" series where we’ll cover one of the biggest achievements in the making of ReactOS 0.4 the past year: NTVDM.

Therefore, we would like to present it to you along with an overview about the work that has been done to get it where it is now. Due to the 2500 characters limit of Indiegogo updates, we split this update into two parts.

For those who don't know what NTVDM stands for yet, let's start with some basics:

A Year's Progress: The Shell

Written by

This is part of a series of articles covering ReactOS development since the Indiegogo campaign.

As you may remember, the ReactOS Community Edition is going to be based on the amazing ReactOS 0.4 series about to be launched. ReactOS 0.4 has a lower failure rate (less that 0.1% failure from over 10 million tests!), comes with support for NTFS and ext3 file systems, and improves hardware compatibility. All of this will become part of the Community Edition, in addition to a new visual interface and much more!

Because of your backing the Indiegogo campaign, one of ReactOS 0.4's biggest deliverables will be the new shell. The shell, on ReactOS and Windows, is the graphical interface that a user interacts with. It encompasses the desktop, taskbar, start menu, and file explorer. What good would a great visual style be, if it was full of holes and bugs?

So let’s go over how the ReactOS user interface has evolved over the last few years, and discover what your support has made possible.
