USB drive installation comparison

Postby fuficom » Thu Dec 22, 2011 10:33 pm

Hi everyone,

I would like to know which operating system, Windows or ReactOS are faster when loaded from a USB drive?

I need this for my work...

Thanks!

ReactOS does not yet support USB drives at all, so you can't boot ReactOS from one. Unless you're talking about putting it all on a virtual machine and dropping that on a flash drive. In that case, ReactOS will be much faster, hands down! That's partly because the kernel is still incomplete, so there's less to load into memory at this point. ;)

I'm still not clear what the goal is. Windows 3.1 would be even faster, if that's all that matters. If you also want a fully functional operating system, ReactOS is still in alpha stage, which means potentially unstable and not recommended for mission critical use. Please use, test, and report on your experience with ReactOS, but don't expect it to be a viable alternative to Windows at this point.
