According to ReactOS team MSVC 2010 still supports WinXP target.
I say we should keep the WinXP support up as long as the ReactOS team

OK, when we can combine 1) a compatible and still supported MSVC and 2)
it's still possible to use OpenOffice with WinXP, then sure let's do it.

It is a good and sound strategy, we would promote another OpenSource
Project.

I think build additional legacy WinXP binary will not hurt us, and it

Ahm, I hope this is a typo. I don't want to have separate binaries just
for WinXP and all newer Windows versions. ;-)

If we are to upgrade to Java 9 for windows by default wouldn't we have
to make separate builds for all 32 bit versions of Windows as Oracle did
not release a 32 bit version of Java 9?

maybe, but it's about WinXP. Here we shouldn't create a special build.

might be not so much more work. We could explain this if we are
releasing 4.2.0 before ReactOS has made the transition.
That would fit to our strategy in Total. We also do support AmigaOS
and OS/2 warp inofficially. Maybe it would bring us sympathy from another

Inofficially means concrete: We can bring in fixes into SVN, so that
others are able to build on other platforms like OS/2. But that is all
as building and distribution is happening outside of the ASF.

Community if we promote their target.
Do you agree on the strategy or do you think it would cost us to much
workload?

Like I wrote above, let's do it if we can have it for a cheap "price".

I have found 2 more Windows action Items I forgot about:

a) MSI installer

We have already a MSI installation. What exactly do you have in mind?

b) signed install binary.

Do you think these Items should be trackked too?
If so where should they be on our list?

Even when signing is complicated as at the moment we need to start at
zero (analysis and development) it's the top priority as it would show a
much better integration into modern Windows releases.

My 2 ct.

Hello,

I would guess it.

If someone still have a Win-XP system can test if it also works on Win
XP. But Win XP is end of live for a long time.

User can use 4.1.5 as long as they use Win XP.

Kind regards

Thats the points I am aware of. Are there more Windows specific
points?
Does upgrade from MSVC2008 mean dropping support for Win XP? The
recently released LO 6.0 32bit requires at least Windows 7...
