ReactOS Win32 personality a fully featured multi user operating system with possibilities to log in several users at the same time with an insulated environment for every login. Every login should be able to access the terminal services from any interface with many different protocolls enabling different possibilities depending on protocol, interface and connecton speed.


  • Multi user environment.
  • Possibility to log on remotely or locally via any interface.
  • Possibility to log in several times from the same terminal.
  • Possibility to use two or more sets of keyboard, mouse and screen (Human Interface Device/HID) and associate a login to a certain set of HIDs.
  • Possibility to use RDP, Citrix, X-Windows client, Telnet or VNC as protocol/client.
  • Possibility to give every login an insulated environment much like vmware.
"Undo-Disks" -> ROS doesn't write do the real harddisk; Snapshot (in German this is called "Datenairbag")
  • Possibility to let a session log in to an emulation environment like QEmu, MAMEor VICE to run other Operating System then the Terminal Server or software not compiled for the CPU
  • Easy management with possibility to take over, see and redirect a session directly from login screen.
