So, I read what i could off the site, and I still don't know much about this OS?

Is it like linux where it has its own apps? or is it a true blue alternative that also uses windows products?

I'm confused here..

ReactOS is an operating system that is designed to be like Microsoft Windows NT (that includes 2000, XP, 2003, and Longhorn/Vista) to the point of even being compatible with Windows NT drivers and applications.

Internally ROS isn't a carbon copy of Windows, but to applications and drivers it's intended to be just like Windows :)

In other words, to end-users it is/will be just like Windows and will run (most of) the same programs and drivers.
