    I would use neither ReactOS nor LinuxFX because they both don’t fit my use case.

    ReactOS is valid as a every day OS or only as a educational project without a practical use?

    You can use it as both, but this is not an either/or situation. There are more applications for an OS than being an everyday driver for regular people and an educational project. For example, one of my clients runs an electron microscope on ReactOS. Supporting WinXP or upgrading the software would cost dozens, if not hundreds of thousands of Euros.

    ReactOS is not a fork, it’s a reverse engineered rewrite. Did you even read the thread I linked?

      While React os and Linuxfx are cool projects, they are not designed for actual use. I would recommend learning how to use a good linux distro such as Linux mint. There is going to be a learning curve but many beginner friendly distros try to make the transition as smooth as possible.
