ReactOS "This is a huge release for the team, not just with regards to the number of improvements which this release holds but in terms of the leap forward architecturally, stability wise and in bringing some of the more modern aspects of the NT kernel into ReactOS. It's been almost a year since the last release and whilst this is understandably excessive, it was required to stabilize the OS due to the nature of the work which was undertaken."

Me too! But I'll use ReactOS when it reaches 1.0 (if I'm still alive).

I'm just hoping that one day it becomes stable enough to run XP-era business apps that don't play nice on newer Windows so I can begin recommending it as a way to sidestep hardware upgrades and new licensing. Sadly this may never happen as visualization is increasingly making this legacy systems support issue irrelevant, with the only possible exception being applications requiring esoteric XP-only drivers.

Rest assured: nothing will beat ReactOS 1.0 when it comes to running Duke Nukem 4.0!

I wish there was a WineOS or a ReReOS Linux Distro that's made specifically to run apps that use the windows API on a linux foundation.

Not very useful. Wine already does its best on most distros.

With a bottom-up approach like ReactOS, otoh, people will be able to run their applications faster *and* use their hardware which only has proper drivers for Windows.

Since on these days, manufacturer-made drivers have replaced standards in hardware-software interfacing, it's really a good thing.

Why the hell was this modded down? It's not off topic, it's not a troll and I can't imagine the kind of stretch of logic it would require for you to call it "inaccurate"

"Mod down" != "I disagree"! Reply instead.
