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.

I don't understand the relationship between Linux and Reactos here

Because both people who work on Reactos and Linux are system developers and they can learn any system to work on improving it.

why not suggest BSD developers down tools and work on Reactos?

Could be too!

I personally don't use Windows and have no requirement for a Windows clone, so your suggestion seems utter madness to me.

You aren't representative of the majority of people. Most people use Windows, so a Windows clone is useful to more people than a Unix clone.

Oh now wait a minute, your were joking in your post right?

Nope. Just pragmatic.
