Forum Guidelines

Lolcows are people and groups whose eccentric or foolish behavior can be "milked" for amusement and laughs. They are not countries, political figures, celebrities, your highschool bully, or some random YouTuber who doesn't involve himself in drama.

  • Be civil.

    Don't get angry over Lolcows. If you need to tell people you're better than someone, you're probably not.

  • Hide your powerlevel.

    Avoid revealing intimate, embarrassing details about yourself. This is not your blog and we are not an asylum.

  • Don't backseat moderate.

    You are not a moderator. You do not decide if a thread is to remain open or not. You do not decide if someone is a lolcow or not.

  • Don't white knight.

    Don't turn threads into an intervention. If you want to help, contact them privately. True lolcows reject advice.

  • Do not create topics about forum members.

    If you believe someone discovered by their account on the forum deserves a thread, ask staff first.

  • No trolling plans.

    We are not an autistic Illuminati. If you embarrass yourself or the forum trying to troll, we will ridicule you.

  • Topic titles should contain aliases.

    Keep thread titles as brief as possible and use all their different usernames.

  • Archive everything.

    Use archival tools to preserve content forever. Upload directly to posts where applicable.

  1. I don't want to get off-topic but you don't seem to understand how incredibly complex NT is. Any idiot can slap a linux distro together overnight and Haiku is a fairly simple architecture that doesn't seem too concerned with hardware compatibility. I'm honestly impressed ReactOS got anywhere at all, if you pirate NT 4's leaked source and see how many thousands upon thousands of the gigabytes of files it has, and that only being the second version of NT ever released, it's got a fucking lot of work going into it. Not just that but re-implementing DirectX, Driver Foundation, and all the very carefully orchestrated Executive serves is a huge undertaking. And even then, they're going out of their way to implement a few things released in versions of Windows past their target version (MinWin's architecture, extra APIs, etc.)

  2. I can't even really fathom that Herculean task. Just fuzzing applications and making a PoC takes me a lot of time. Taking the leaked source code of NT and using it to rebuild an OS is not the task any single person could do. There's just way too much going on.

    Terry "wisely" chose going Ring0. He gives the user total power to do anything they wish within that limited scope. Security doesn't exist in TempleOS. It is, by design, dangerous. Actually making TempleOS networked would be the greatest security nightmare, ever. Eternal Blue/Double Pulsar wouldn't hold a candle to a networked TempleOS. MS08-067 would look like a small pimple in comparison. Terry made his Temple for himself, Mister God, and the user.

  3. Dear christ I never even thought about what would happen if TempleOS had networking, it probably is for the better that it doesn't.

    As a side note, people who have seen the leaked source are forbidden from contributing, ReactOS is extremely legally cautious. I was just using the leaked source as an example of how complex the OS architecture is.

  5. I hope @The Temple is doing ok. He seemed pretty broken up by all this and people really ragged on him for no good reason during all of this.

  6. Doesn't ShrineOs have networking?
  7. Yes, it's heretical. Full TCP/IP support, like MIT niggers use.

    God didn't say "640x480 with 16 colors and 65535 ports"

  8. I've seen a Discord client for it. This mildly pisses me off since there isn't a functional lightweight Discord client for normal OSes, and the official client is hot garbage.
