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.

Ridiculous comment. Of course it is a useful project. It *does* take time, but it's a project that many people will use in a few years, because it's a clone of the *most popular* operating system around. What I suggest is take a few Linux developers, have them learn about Win32 and give the Reactos team a hand until it reaches the stable version, then resume work on Linux (if still interested). Now, *that* would be useful, and many more people would benefit from the collaboration and could use a Windows replacement that works for them.
