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.

In fact, we're afraid that new distributive can't be stable yet, so we don't publish new version yet. Previous stable version was 0.7.7.0 (svn revision ~1350). Today's nightly build (svn revision ~2350) should have number at least 0.8.5.0 because was added very important things (ext2/3 support, Intel video support, HD audio support, new mutexes, new disk subsystem, ACPI, new almost fully compliant POSIX compatiblity RTL, PE DLLs, tons of new ports). But all that features aren't well-tested. We are shorthanded and need new developers and testers, but it's hard to find them.
