ReactOS download question

Post by RichardG867 »

I'm downloading ReactOS now, but there is a problem: ReactOS-0.3.4-REL-iso.zip returned me an odd download with 27.2 MB size. Is this REAL?

Can you (or anyone) test it? My dial-up is too stinky to hold "no-resuming" web installs.

27 megabytes sounds about right, the devs are trying to keep the download as small as possible, not everyone has broadban, remember that you can use the "download" app to install the apps that you want or need.
