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.

Ok, so this is a port of the Wine Win32 user land to run on top of the ReactOS kernel? Correct? If so, I have to admit I pretty much thought that's what ReactOS was already.


WINE and ReactOS shared code and developers, but ReactOS was never really a port of WINE.

There's much much more to Windows than Win32 and NT kernel - just like there is more to ReactOS than it's Win32 calls and it's kernel.

However, up until today, I must admit I thought ReactOS had heavier influences from WINE too.
