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.

So NOT a waste of time

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.

I imagine it would be useful in a developing country like mine where the vast majority who want to use computers cannot afford even the cheapest Windows license but would like to use Win32 applications. I for one have tried an older beta and will try the latest beta again along with some applcations to see if I can deploy it on retired PCs here.
