Default Open source, Windows-based OS - 02-08-2012, 06:31 PM

Just came across this in my G+ stream. Don't have my Mini anymore, but thought someone here may be interested.

Frontpage - ReactOS Website

"ReactOS® is a free, modern operating system based on the design of Windows® XP/2003. Written completely from scratch, it aims to follow the Windows-NT® architecture designed by Microsoft from the hardware level right through to the application level. This is not a Linux based system, and shares none of the unix architecture."

Interesting. Still very much a "work in progress".

I downloaded it and installed in on a old C600 someone gave me that had a bad hard drive. Bought a used 20 gig hard drive and away we went. Works much better than I ever thought it would. Alot of fun and I decided to keep it on the old Win 98 machine. Someone put in alot of hard work into this thing. fdalbor
