ReactOS is a great project that has much potential, especially in a few years when it really gets more and more polished. I guess it represents thousands and thousands of hours to develop such a system reverse-engineering a system like Win32, damn, these guys are crazy, it's mad. They must be highly skilled as well. I hope one day I can use ReactOS in my daily tasks just like I'm using Windows XP now. I think ReactOS should have a lot more momentum for what it is and for the potential it has, heck, if it had the hype Ubuntu has, with many donations and developers, it could evolve a lot faster and, who knows, some companies could be starting switching their Windows installations to ReactOS :-)
