Without instructions, and with a catch all ReactOS (outdated) README (and more docs from the same source):

Quote

ReactOS Version 0.3.x

Updated Dec 16, 2006

I am probably getting too old for this kind of things :(, but all I can see is a large number of nice screenshots :) and a bunch of files largely (probably) an outdated fork of ReactOS.

The probability that anyone, exception made for a handful of top-level programmers/hackers, already very familiar with ReactOS code and with Windows NT, can actually compile anything working from that is - in my personal estimation - so low that the Improbability Drive of the Heart of Gold could use it to go to both ends of the known Universe, twice. :w00t:


 

As said, nice screenshots . :thumbup

Good, if you have actually checked each and every file (everything) against possible redistribution limitations, copyright infringements and/or IP violations of the "provided resources", we will take your motivated opinion, given also the vast experience you have in these matters as a green light.  :yes:

Dibya said it's fine.

Very intriguing project. But I haven't the slightest idea how to install it? Downloading the packages and extracting the resources onto XP x64 or Server 2003 x86 simply renders the OS unusable. Looking further on the dev's website, I found bootable ISO's. However it requires a product key to proceed.

I must be very punctual here. I'm not asking how to illegally circumvent activation. But what is this OS/distro even based on? Would you activate it using a Server 2003 key?

These discs contain other projects, such as porting Longhorn interface, and are not based on One-Core-API.
