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.

Actually, Linux is not made by someone, it is actually GNU. Stallmans vision decades ago. Linus stepped in and placed his kernel into GNU. Without the collective efforts of the GNU team, Linux would not have happened.

You make it sound like Linus developed GNU/Linux. But no, it was only his kernel. Someone builds the whole car except the engine, and is constructing the engine - when some teenager steps in and puts his shitty engine inside. Then that teenager gets all credit: "he constructed the car"? I dont get it.

As several people say, Linux is bloated and unstable. Some would say it is quite shitty compared to a real OS.
