ReactOS The new ReactOS newsletter has been published. "Currently the main development branch "trunk" even though it has many new features and bug fixes since 0.3.0, it currently has several issues that prevent it from being relatively useful. Furthermore functionality that once worked no longer does, this is called a regression. Until trunk has been reasonably fixed 0.3.1 will not be released. Be assured that the developers are working hard on fixing the current issues and bringing forth a good public release as soon as humanly possible."

ReactOS aims WinXP/WinVista compatibility.

ReactOS has and will continue to incorporating features from newer versions and sometimes even define the state of the art in operating system technology.


It's an old myth spreading around that ReactOS aims for WinNT 4.
The answer is ReactOS aims for WinNT series. The project has been started in 1996 (WinNT 3.5 was available; later that year NT 4 got released). Some years later, the project aimed NT 5 aka Win2000.
The current aims are WinNT 5&6 (2000, XP, 2003 and Vista) .
