ReactOS "This is a huge release for the team, not just with regards to the number of improvements which this release holds but in terms of the leap forward architecturally, stability wise and in bringing some of the more modern aspects of the NT kernel into ReactOS. It's been almost a year since the last release and whilst this is understandably excessive, it was required to stabilize the OS due to the nature of the work which was undertaken."

RE: ReactOS is overkill...

Not very useful. Wine already does its best on most distros.

With a bottom-up approach like ReactOS, otoh, people will be able to run their applications faster *and* use their hardware which only has proper drivers for Windows.

Since on these days, manufacturer-made drivers have replaced standards in hardware-software interfacing, it's really a good thing.
