How do I install OSFree? I have 2 files, 1: osfree-binaries.zip 2: osfree-sources.zip If I just
places all the files on my HDD on my old PC, would it then work/boot?

I think ReactOS will be very happy for any support from you guys. Also, if you are more
into Linux, you could extend Wine to accept OS/2 binaries.

ReactOS will benefit from this as well.

What part of OS/3 is being developed currently? I've seen this website previously
and there isn't much change.

Is there a way to make a donate money to this project. Paypal is easiest for me.
If everyone person who wants to see this project succeed I would challenge each
of u to give even if it is only 5 dollars. If 200 people did that they would have a
1000 dollars It would be worth the investment
