ReactOS is a free open source operating system that is developed as a free analog of Microsoft Windows, providing support for applications and drivers. At the same time, it allows you to mount and read various Unix file systems, including ext2, ext3, EXT4, ReiserFS and UFS. If you don’t want to buy Windows for 150-200$, you can legally install free React OS.
Developers of React OS follows two basic principles. First one is that the system should be open source and free and t must be fully compatible with all drivers, programs and games for Windows. The second principle is to make the transition to ReactOS as easy as possible for the user, without needing for retrain or assimilating into the new system and software.
The ReactOS interface practically repeats the classic Windows scheme, the user will meet the familiar My Computer, Cart, Start menu standard windows, and the familiar blue screen of death (BSOD) that occurs during critical failures.
The computer requirements for installing the system are very low: RAM – at least 64 MB or 256 MB recommended, processor – x86 or x64 architecture, at least 350 MB on the hard disk , VGA compatible video card.
Two distributions are available for download: Live – it is suitable for running the system on a virtual machine – VMware or VirtualBox and an ISO-disk image that can be installed on a CD / DVD or USB stick and you can install the OS on the hard disk.
