ReactOS isn't a good OS to use for school yet; you can lose all your work.

Look at CrystalXP.net.

Yes, Linux is good. I personally like Kubuntu because of the GUI, but I only really use in as a virtual machine on my iMac.

Oh, man. You use Windows ME. THAT's why you want to replace it with another OS? Is it okay if you completely wipe out your existing Win ME installation?

Here are some operating systems you should look at:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Fu ... Legacy_PCs is a Windows OS designed like Windows XP (which is pretty good) designed for less powerful machines (like your laptop). You have to buy it. Unlike Linux.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edubuntu is Linux, designed for school. I don't know if it is what you want or not.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xubuntu is another type of Ubuntu (Linux), designed for low-end machines. Maybe this is what you want. It looks okay.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kubuntu is Ubuntu with a very nice GUI (and theme). I wouldn't be surprised if you laptop can handle it, but just check the system requirements.

If you like any of these types of Linux, I should be able to find the iso file for you to download, plus a program you can use (on your Desktop) to convert it into a bootable CD for your laptop.

So why don't you try the cds? Do you need to ask if Linux is good? Just try it, anything is better than Windows ME, and you can use Linux for productivity (like with OpenOffice.org) plus there are many other programs for Linux.

By the way, your laptop is pretty old. Would you consider upgrading the memory or something? Maybe, also see if your computer overheats, you need to clean the heatsink and fans (after so much time, it is probably a good idea).

Also, know that in a few years, when ReactOS is really ready for the world, there will probably be good themes support, plus some of us are working on a much nicer icon set than the current.

Well, don't forget about Windows Fundamentals for Legacy PCs and Xubuntu.

That is a mock-up of a theme design proposal. It doesn't actually exist.

Hi! Wow! Well I didn't knwo it existed either. It is a real product though. But you need to be a Microsoft Software Assurance customer. Read this: http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/sa/b ... ntals.mspx

Yeah, so unless that's the case, best bet would probably be to use something like xubuntu.
