    I wonder why the free virtio driver is still not included. From a quick test, e1000 seems to work though.

    It’s nice to see the progress, but it’s still sad that ReactOS still supports only XP/2003 ABI, while pretty much all free and proprietary software authors alike dropped support for anything older than Vista/7, and dev tools don’t support XP either, so it puts ReactOS in a position where it cannot run anything but outdated software. I hope to see that improve.

      I wonder why the free virtio driver is still not included.

      Does it work? Perhaps testing that and then opening a ticket (if there isn’t already one) would help.

        It worked fine on Win2003 from what I remember. It’s a fair point of course, I should test it.

      What’s the purpose of ReactOS? Is it just to run old Windows XP software? But if I wanted to do that, I’d use VirtualBox with a Windows XP image as it’s likely to work better. Any idea what it’s actually used for?

        The Windows XP image is license-encumbered software.
