RE: Drivers?

As was said, there needs to be a certain amount of basic drivers in there that you can actually install ReactOS at all. But what the other poster didn't say and I thought to mention:

There are a lot of drivers in Windows and it would be very easy to just grab those, make sure they work in ReactOS and then bundle them with it. But the problem is that those drivers are proprietary and as such you are not allowed to ship them with ReactOS. Would be good if the drivers were free, ReactOS devs could cut quite a lot of development time then :/
