  • Why does part of the Windows 98 Setup program look older than the rest?

    SerenityOS replicates that look and feel. It is also implemented in a dialect of C++ that adheres to some of the good parts of C++98:

    One example of a useful technique apparently only makes source code available. There are no binary images of the OS to install

    I think Andreas said this functions like a little test -- if you're not willing to build it from source, then you probably wouldn't be a good contributor anyway.


    Likewise, my shell project provides source tarballs only, right now -

    It is packaged in a number of places, which I appreciate. That means some other people are willing to do some work.

    And they provide good feedback.

    I would like it to be more widely available, but yeah I definitely see that you need to "gate" peanut gallery feedback a bit, because it takes up a lot of time.

    Of course, it's a tricky balance, because you also want feedback from casual users, to make the project better.

  • Fuzzing Ladybird with tools from Google Project Zero

    Indeed, given the existence of `JS::NonnullGCPtr`, `JS::GcPtr` intentionally corresponds to a nullable pointer, so it seems dangerous to convert one to a reference without a null-check.

    That said, a naive code search finds what *may* be more cases of this pattern:

    Eg: ->

    In some of those search results, it is fine because there is a preceding null-check, and obviously I know nothing about this code other than this naive search result, but perhaps it would be prudent to vet all of them.

    It is a SerenityOS project. You can find the answer to that question in their primary project's FAQ[1].

  • Ask HN: What side projects landed you a job?
    62 projects | | 3 Dec 2023
    My contributions to SerenityOS[0] helped me get my current job. My team lead (who was also my interviewer) was interested in what I did since I listed some of it in my CV, and I showed him some PRs I made and explained what went into each of them. It was really exciting because I didn't have professional experience with low-level development, and basically got the job due to hobby programming.
