Multimedia/Gamming

My reasons are

#1) It's the hardest to do.

#2) It will have a trickle down effect on all others as Online Gaming, will force better networking, and higher graphics power will help with Office apps too.

#3) It Windows #1 strength, and Linux's biggest weakness. When Half Life and Steam run full speed under RoS, Windows will actually be forced to compete again, and may rememeber that the Customer is #1. Not the special interest group or their own agenda for World domination. :lol:

To play any games released for windows around 1997-2003 (or newer) with modest hardware.

Would love to have a gaming system as light as Win98 yet have some advanced capabilities similar to *NIX system. So far ReactOS is going great.

i will use it as an Windows-Compatible Thinclient OS with ultrafast boottime.

I need only an Working Network Stack, Graphics Drivers and an stable RDP Client :)

One of the duty of my work is PC Technician and I would replace WinXP with ReactOS, in order to remove all the authentication annoyance and copyright/closed source problems of Microsoft Windows, in all the installation and users that want Windows.
IMHO, I will promote ReactOS, instead of Vista, reintroducing a perfect backward compatibility with Win9x programs and games.

I hope that ROS could be useful in the desktop enviroment ASAP, because, I'm tired of XP and it's palladium activation.

Long Life to ReactOS.

Windows TSE alternative for runing windows only software

Post by cardondenis »

LTSP (ltsp.org) is a great tool to replace desktop by linux thin client. It is a cost cutting solution for both businesses and school. The thing that makes the migration path to this kind of plateform difficult is compatibility with windows based applications.
Installing a Windows TSE (terminal service) allow a linux thin client to access windows application remotly, but it is awfully expensive.
Having TSE in ReactOS (plus application compatiblity) would make it a killer app (outch, I should say os).

Cheers

I agree, but it will take a really long time until ROS is stable enough for Terminal Services, but as a client we will be a serious alternative pretty soon. By the way, the MSTSC is under way.

Window must die?

Post by andrei »

I'm developing web sites. Linux works perfect for me, however many web-users prefere Windows and are using IE. Thus I need to run IE somehow for testing purposes.

I don't like Windows for it's not free. ReactOS, I hope, will work for me.

This is embarrassing for me, but I must say... ...IE doesn't work in ReactOS, but it does on WINE, so I suggest you use Linux all the way for this purpose. Saying this I really hope you stay with us anyway as ReactOS gets more mature it might run IE in the future.

LOL seems no one wants to trust an NT clone for Server dutties... FOOLS!

ReactOS is gonna be a nice Web Server (when apache 2 finally works (hopefully in 0.3.1)) OMG I CANT WAIT!!
