That's because vast majority of people involved in ReactOS project
*at least* dualboots with a Windows installation. And for any
Windows driver developer this is obviously a must, since ReactOS is
quite far from being the leading development environment :)
It would be handy to have a copy of Windows 2003 for leasing, if
that's possible. However, installing it at a remotely-accessible
location is nearly useless (unless you really want to RDP into a yet
another Windows, which has VMWare inside of it, plus a WinDbg, and
you want to develop/test drivers this way).
My 5 kopeyek.
