ReactOS ReactOS, the project to create a Windows NT-compatible operating system, has published another news update with some interesting news items. The legal position of the ReactOS Foundation has been strengthened, and now has a VeriSign certificate that might help other open source projects as well, the new ATA driver is more or less complete, and there's some progress in the area of video drivers.

Waste of time

I imagine that these guys from ReactOS are very intelligent.
Why are they wasting their time doing this project? Really, this is not going anywhere. By the time they have a consumer ready version, Windows will be in #15 or whatever name Microsoft finds for it.
Just drop it. It is useless. No one, except a couple dozens hobbiest will ever try it.
Do some work on some meaningful project and use your talents for something that will really make a difference in software engineer and design.
