Hello,
It's really amaizing to have a WindowsXP alike free OS., Great job :o
I'm planing to change all my home PCs to ReactOS distib so I will like to ensure that I'll not loose some functionalities. I would like to know if it's possible to run theses applications with ReactOS: ;)
  • Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2008
    Microsoft SQL Server Express 2005
    VMWare Server
    TANGO Patcher
Does ReactOS support Multimedia USB Drives ?

Also, Is there any themes or Styles for ReactOS ?

Thanks in advance for all your replies. ;)

Try and see and report back your findings. May I warn you that our FAT32 driver is currently unstable, as is our networking stack, and as noted earlier, our USB stack vaguely supports NT4 drivers, and not the later ones. Unless you're experimenting with ReactOS on hardware you don't consider important, we discourage people from using this for everyday use.

All icons in ReactOS are from Tango set, so you don't need "Tango Patcher" at all. Also note that ReactOS is currently in alpha stage and is not yet recommended for everyday use ;)

And for those who don't know how to recompile shell32? You should make sure the patcher runs then.
