ReactOS 0.4.7 released
« on: December 07, 2017, 02:47:55 am »
Just in case, this is an offtopic !!!

ReactOS 0.4.7 was released:

"ReactOS 0.4.7 has been released, and it contains a ton of fixes, improvements, and new features. Judging by the screenshots, ReactOS 0.4.7 can run Opera, Firefox, and Mozilla all at once, which is good news for those among us who want to use ReactOS on a more daily basis. There's also a new application manager which, as the name implies, makes it easier to install and uninstall applications, similar to how package managers on Linux work. On a lower level, ReactOS can now deal with Ext2, Ext3, Ext4, BtrFS, ReiserFS, FFS, and NFS partitions. "

I'm amazed by the progress made of this OS. I remember that the first versions sucked very bad and all the people were taking it as a joke. We may disagree if the OS is ready or not for non experimental use, but it is moving forward.

I envy their organization and will to create an open source clone of their favorite OS. (which sadly was not OS/2).

I downloaded and installed it in VirtualBox.  It ran without a hitch.  Was speedy.  Very nice.  I did have one issue trying to use gmail with Opera 12.  It came up being rendered incorrectly.  But it's quite an assemblage of Windowsesque power.

Very impressive.  Thank you for posting about it.
