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.

The NT design is very strong and the fundementals haven't changed since the days of cutler.


Fundamentals haven't change - you need to look at where they verred off course in 4.0 for the sake of speed as a prime example of what happens when management start to get involved with things they know nothing about or make decisions that are dogmatically driven based on 'market research' rather than the right course of action based on a long term perspective.
