I have yesterday downloaded and tested it. And it runs now. :-)
Thank you very much for this hint.
ReactOS looks very nice.
One of the best thing is the booting.
At first the Freeloader which let you choose between ReactOS and ReactOS
Then opens the blue WinNT-screen and wrote something down there. But it's so
fast, that I can't read it. So fast on my old computer. :-)
Then the nice booting ReactOS-Logo. And I think, in this time, it loads also
faster then WinNT.
Then there xomes for a half second the blue screen back and then there comes
the ReactOS-desktop. And all comes very fast. :-)
And under ReactOS the programs (like sol.exe) are running partially fast
To take a new card of the pack of cards in the left corner of the top, is
fast like on WinNT, I think.
But moving a card or moving windows is very slow.
The menus of the program exist, but they are not usable, what me wonder. :-o
And the console-window needs a lot of time, too, to write there the letters,
if I type "dir" or anything else in there.
But for a 0.2.0-version its excellent.
But I am wondering, why the freeloader-floppy-image is not an offical part
of ReactOS and why it is not published at Sourceforge. :-/
I think the binary-version of ReactOS plus the FreeLoader floppy-image is a
But on Sourceforge are actually - of the 0.2.1.RC2-version - only versions
for bochs and iso-images vor CDROMs. And my computer is for bochs too slow
(and have too less memory) and for the iso-image I have no CD-burner.
So I could only test the last final-version: ReactOS 0.2.0.
And now a little thought of myself.
I think, it would be nice if somethink like the DOS "sys.exe" exists for
sys.exe copies the basical system-files to a dos-filesystem (that can be a
floppy, a harddisk-partition or anything else) and writes in the MDR which
systemfile have been to load.
Something else, existing with the FreeLOader-floppy-image. There is the mdr,
which says, that freeldr.sys have to load. But the floppy-image is only for
a floppy and all files on it will be deleted.
So I think something like sys.exe would be nice.
So that sys.exe write to the mdr of a floppy, harddisk, - if possible to the
CDROM, DVD or anything else. :-)
