future ports


Recommended Posts

I have a pretty good idea on paint.net's current position on being ported to Linux(and mac OS for that matter). However, have any of you guys ever heard of ReactOS? It's been in development since the late 90s, and it's goal is to become an authentic windows clone that provides full compatibility with all applications written for windows while maintaining an open-source nature. It's still in the alpha stages of development, and it'll will be a while before it becomes a solid, functional operating system, but when it does get a 1.0 release, is it practical for paint.net to be ported to it?

If that ever happens, there will be no need for a port, now will there? Otherwise, no, never.

Development spanning 2 decades and it's in alpha. Yeah I'll get right on that .... :roll: Windows is so expensive* that they need to roll their own version of it from scratch.

Isn't that basically a glorified operating system version of WINE with the same level of compatibility? I doubt Paint.NET will ever run using WINE alone as the .NET framework is a Microsoft product. Mono might eventually advance enough to unsolicitedly support Paint.NET, though.

And remember what I said about asking questions that you don't even need the answer to, jerry533482? :roll: You're starting to get on people's nerves.
