I actually think thats cool. ReactOS is basically a Linux clone of Windows...and has Wine Built in so most Windows Apps run... A Desktop in a console...interesting

Exactly. No Linux underpinnings, but maybe a bit of Wine code built-in. ReactOS is an attempt to create a NT-compatible operating system from scratch, not by using an existing OS as a base.

the controller ports are just USB ports so you could just plug a keyboard in ;) (if it supports USB, i have no idea)

the usb support on reactos is incomplete ( sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt) but the guys at reactos are working hard to fix that asap.

Actually, the two projects share just about every piece of code that can be used in both.

The Ephemeral between existance and non-existance: AKA "being"

Favourite OS
Rhapsody, BeOS
Although, they make a fairly big effort to share files (drivers). I think ReactOS is a unique system because it does opperations such as memory allocation different.

This is nothing unusual. I've run DSL on an Xbox before. Yes the ports are usb 1.1 ports. Yes, you can put a bigger hard drive in. *Hint* Use auto installer deluxe. It is even possible to emulate N64 and DDR.

All done before.

Move on...
