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.

Thanks for the clarification, there, I was confused too.

If I can ask a second, stupid question: what parts of the Win32 API run are kernel-mode? I thought the NT kernel/Win32 architecture design featured a small kernel, with layers built on top of it (in user mode) to generate the system interface that user applications see; basically, I thought that, by design, the Win32 interface was implemented in libraries and didn't penetrate down into the NT kernel itself?
