Question Does Robolinux Run ReactOS


Hello,
I want to install Robolinux to run windows software but i don't have a windows disc/ISO with a product key so i'm in a bit of trouble can Robolinux run ReactOS in Virtualbox since it can run windows software, free, doesn't just copy windows and it goes under the category of windows XP/2003 in Virtualbox.
The main reason i'm wondering if this works is because it uses little ram and storage and is not vulnerable to most Windows and Linux viruses

I've included some hyper links for the not as well known os's

Thanks, Prox

last time i looked at robolinux is a while ago, but from that i can say:
robolinux can do everything any other linux distro with virtualbox can do.
maybe they offer pre-packaged virtual machines or something, but it's mostly cosmetics (which they convince some of the more gullible users to even pay for).

in other words:
if reactOS can run as a vm in virtualbox, the answer is likely yes.
check out reactOS FAQ, wiki etc.
