No problem, I just talked to the ReactOS people to find out.
during the chat, I may have worked out exactly how to get them working though,
as some of them have patches/cracks to get win7 stuff to work on ROS.
Not always well, but it does work.
On the other hand, I may just write an interpreter for ReactOS to work just
like the tools normally would. It shouldn't be that hard since the code is
already available. But who knows. I will probably encounter many issues. But I
think that it will be beneficial in the end.
At the moment there are other things I'm working on in Qubes to get it to work
right, you know, bridged networking and all. and I mean completely bridged, not
So that's my first priority, then I'll get onto this other thing and see what I
can pull off, or if it is even possible. It should be possible, and shouldn't
take too long if it is possible.
I'll let you know how it goes.
