Since no topic for ReactOS has been created here, I figured I'd create one.

In case you don't know what is ReactOS, ReactOS is a free and open-source operating system based on Windows XP/Server 2003's functionality, while being able to run some NT 6 applications.
For more information about ReactOS, click here. You can also click here.
To download ReactOS, click here.
ReactOS's homepage: https://reactos.org/
ReactOS's forum: https://reactos.org/forum

⚠️ Warning: ReactOS is in heavy development and it's in alpha stage currently, this means no guarantee for stability and safety. It's for evaluation and testing purposes only in this moment. If you want to use/test ReactOS, it's hlghly recommended to install it with virtualization software, such as VirtualBox or VMware. Informaton about setting up ReactOS is here, and a list of supported virtualization software. ⚠️

I tested ReactOS, and while the warning above is true, I am very satisfied with ReactOS generally. It is completely looking and working good.
Windows 7 was the last good operating system a user can use, since it's the best operating system, in my opinion. Windows 10 and 11, on the other hand, are ugh, so annoying.

Hi, how was ReactOS for you? A satisfying new experience?
I tested 0.4.15 dev, and I noticed a new feature: a new UI (similar to XP) for Log off and Shut down options.

Hmmm ...

I just grabbed the latest live DVD they offered, which appears to be:

ReactOS-0.4.14-release-63-ge4c6c6b-Live

So I'll test it this week, sorry just been dealing with a lot in real life as just today, I found out from the staff here that some of the people that went missing here are now homeless and I'm taking it a bit hard if I'm being honest.

But testing something will be a good distraction I think.

Take good care.

EDIT:

Sorry for any confusion I may have caused when I wrote some people are missing in which I meant (was referring) where I reside and that has nothing to do with ReactOS or the forum; rather, more on a personal matter.

No, I was putting a link to explain what I meant.

Well I'll admit I only used the live DVD and didn't install it.
