ReactOS The ReactOS project aims to be an open source Windows NT-compatible operating system which can run Windows applications and utilise Windows drivers. Obviously, this is quite a daunting task, and as such, progress has been relatively slow. As a result, project coordinator and kernel developer Aleksey Bragin has proposed a rather drastic solution.

1. Create a problem that doesn't exist (i.e. the need for a Windows clone).
2. Find a sucky solution that somehow, kind of works after using lots of duct tape (i.e. ReactOS).
3. Let the project die a slow death (they're still working on that).

There are too many clowns today who do Open Source just for the sake of Open Source.
