What do you mean by that?
In this context, the term "still needs some love", means, it still needs some more work doing to it before it is finished.

What I have read about the "Multiuser/Logon System", is, that it is turned off by default in the trunk builds, but will be on in the releases. So you should have to create and use passwords in the up-coming 0.4 release.

Windows Server 2003 SP1.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

Will this ever be changed to Windows Server 2008 or 2012? Windows Server 2003 is from the Windows XP era and software really does not support XP anymore. I want to try to install newer Windows software and it won't let me.

As far as I can see, nothing was committed for that, so the answer is: no.

I did notice a package I could install was something about Samba. What would that be used for?
