React OS 0.4.12

Has arrived React OS 0.4.12, the new release that brings Windows Snapping, new themes for the appearance, and also novelties in the kernel of this open source operating system compatible at the binary level with Microsoft Windows, that is, it tries to imitate the Redmond company's system to that your software can be installed without problem (well ... with some other little problem, as it happens with Wine). But without a doubt, it is an interesting alternative to MS Windows, especially to learn how it works.

If you are interested in downloading and testing this new version of ReactOS 0.4.12 operating system, you can find it on the page official project website.

You will also find some shortcuts or keyboard shortcuts, more robustness, correction of some bugs, improvements in the rendering of the fonts for buttons in various apps, two new themes to change the appearance (they are called Mizu and Lunar, as you can see in the main image), and support for Intel e1000 NIC network cards.

Among the kernel changes are file system driver enhancements, power management enhancements, CDFS driver enhancements, PXE booting support enhancement, some other changes that improve security, etc. aggregate support for Wine 4.0, another of the projects that ReactOS feeds on.

    I've always wanted to try it and have never been able to get past the startup logo. Nor have I bothered to find out why. : /

    Do you have any idea what driver management is like? Can you use windows, do you have your own drivers? That, thanks.
