well, I don't think your have to hate or even dislike Linux to find Reactos an interesting and useful project. my personal favourite alternate OS-in-the-making is Haiku, but even so I'm certain that of all the alternate OS's in progress Reactos has the biggest chance of actually attracting a substantial user base given that it is a clone of windows. it will have a ton of software and drivers available, the lack of which is the very achilles heel of every other alternate OS out there.

I read in one of the newsletters (iirc) that there were a new explorer-like shell in Reactos which unfortunately didn't work yet due to incomplete shell functionality, is there any chance it will work in the upcoming Reactos 0.3.4?
