ReactOS ReactOS 0.3.3 has been released. "The Win32 subsystem is in the beginning of a total overhaul to make it completely compatible with NT5 which may introduce various drops in application compatibility from time to time, however in the 0.3.3 release it has had a positive impact on stability and compatibility with Win32 applications. As a generic result of these internal changes, the system feels a lot more stable in comparison to previous releases, and could be run on a real hardware (though usual limitations still apply - no USB, SATA, NTFS)." The screenshots page has been updated as well.

Linux, for example, took quite some time to "get there", and that is just a kernel. Windows is much more than that - It is a kernel, a graphical subsystem, other built-in applications etc.

I am currently using KDE 3.5.7, and I can still find fixed use-cases which cause software to crash.
Bug-free certainly isn't the highlight when it comes to open source software. QA and bug fixing are simply not as fun as implementing new features.
