Today marks the fifth release of the ReactOS 0.4.x series, as well as the fifth following the 4 month release cycle started by 0.4.0 itself. Progress has continued steadily, with a great deal of work going on in the background to improve ReactOS’ general usability and stability. Many of these improvements were on display at the FOSDEM convention in Brussels that took place on the 4th and 5th of this month. Certainly one of the more notable albeit less visible additions was the incorporation of basic printing support by Colin Finck. At present ReactOS is only capable of sending print commands to a parallel port printer, but this is the first step towards universal support and Colin should be applauded for his effort.
It seems ReactOS can run Office 2007 now. That’s actually quite neat.
I keep seeing news about this OS and it seems like it is becoming more viable as a main OS each time it’s updated. I keep running it on a virtual machine to see how its going but I look forward to the day I can put it on a partition
