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.

Surely that even more of a reason for the existence on ReactOS? A free software implementation of the win32 and NT API is able able to be tweaked and changed in ways Microsoft wouldn't even dream.

Plus, a complete cleanroom rewrite of Windows Server 2003 (as ReactOS is "cloning") is likely to produce a cleaner, more efficient and lightweight system than Microsoft's own Windows Server 2003, as the codebase that Microsoft has dates back to the days of Microsoft's OS/2 v3, which NT evolved from.
