Thank you.

Well, to choose ReactOS ()
instead of a version of Linux (there
have some Linux distributions that have aimed for being close to
Windows in their "look and feel") is  much braver and more
risky, but then, your learning experience, including possibly being the
first one to run R there (?) ((possibly even learning how to
*build* R there from the sources ??)),  will feel more
frontier-like and self determined than just following the Linux
crowd ;-) ;-) :-)
