ReactOS Oh ReactOS. This project has been with us for a very long time now, and since day one, I never really knew what to think of it. They always seem to be running at least 300 miles behind the Win32 bandwagon, but what they've accomplished so far is insanely impressive nonetheless. This new release comes with quite a lot of new stuff.

Why?

Who needs ReactOs? I DO see the need for WINE, and I understand that WINE and ReactOs developers cooperate, which is a good thing.

But I can't see the need for ReactOs. If you need an OS to run Windows programs, why not use.. eh.. Windows?

Edit: in the longer run, the lack of safety of XP might be a problem. My solution would be to run it in a virtual box and kill that box (including all possible malware) when you're done.

So: favourite OS > Virtual Machine > XP > programs
