What about all those video, sound and network cards? :)

I see all the mainboard, but not the engine(CPU) :)
-uses Ubuntu+GNOME 3 GNU/Linux
-likes Free (as in freedom) and Open Source Detergents
-favors open source of Windows 10 under GPL2

Impressive! Way to go! A lot of gear so you can mix and match.

CPUs are laying on another shelf. Concerning the many sound- and lancards I gonna sort them out one day, or just piled up because i replaced them for better ones.
My best pieces are:
- Serverboard, for which I have not yet got working cpus for
- Abit BP6, one of the first multi-cpu available, but all caps for Vcore are blown. This one already ReactOS-ed 3 years ago
- Matrox PCI VGA Card
- LAN Card with BNC connector
- dat72 drive
- 5,25 floppy i recalibrated 2 years ago
And all three lcds are repaired ones but not sell-able so I kept them

I once even found a pristine 80gb hdd in the garbage, still wrapped in the garbage. I didn't spin or could be detected by bios, but I got it working with just a few commands.

Now it's causing headache for Alter as it does not want to cooperate with uniata

Ooh! Good for you that you'll have lots of hardware to test out. I have some unused hardware lying around at my home, too, and I would like to have you test some of it. How can I send or ship the hardware to you for this to happen (may be done either one-way for round-trip, depending on if I think I need the hardware again).

Can't you test it? ;) Just need a working computer that you can install ReactOS on.

If I chose to ship, I could reduce the clutter I have if I were to keep holding onto those computer parts at my house. But then that would've made me think about how much clutter the other person would accumulate. :oops: Now I could do the testing at my home, but I might like to know if I should put my test results in a specific format.

There's a WIKI page with results of computer testing.

Gosh ! Good to know that there are people like you, Alahndro.

ReactOS is on its way, an nothing can stop it :-)

Let's look in 2020 what is then with ReactOS - windows 7 users will change to ReactOS in shoals...
