Is this really supposed to be a replacement for windows. I more saw it as for the gamer who wants a few more fps in a windows only game by recompiling the entire system with optimized cflags. And they might be willing to put up with a few imperfects in the ui for the ability to get a higher 3dmark s...

I think another core demographic is gamers. It just makes sense. Hardcore gamers are very enthusiatic about their computers, usually building them with high end components, and ultra competitive too. I can only imagine a gamer adjusting their compiler setting and then recompiling all of ReactOS just...

Got a screenshot?

I guess it's not that supprising. ReactOS uses parts of wine. Codeweavers who created a fork of wine to run office, contributes code back to wine.

If it has access to the hardware, then how is it a sandbox?

All I found on either newegg or zip zoom fly was 3c90x. Looks expensive for a 10/100 network card. Does anyone know where to get one of the other cards for cheaper? If I do have to spend $30 to try ROS on real hardware, I think the $30 would be worth it. http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.j...

If you want to run Windows 3.1 apps, why not do so in an emulator?

I dual-boot linux and windows. One of my main gripes about this setup is that the only filesystem they can both write to is fat32. If I could replace windows with reactos, and it supported ext3 or other linux filesysytems, that would be great.

Too bad no windows port is available. Too bad I don't use windows. Seriously, why are you going to use windows to run ReactOS. Just run your windows program on windows. I was looking through the FAQ, and the idea of having to modify the guest OS sounds like plex86. Was plex86 renamed Xen, or is thi...

Then maybe the Roadmap should be changed so that compatibility with newer games is part of the 1.0 Release.
