ReactOS 0.4.5 has been released.

Thanks to the work of Katayama Hirofumi and Mark Jansen, ReactOS now better serves requests for fonts and font metrics, leading to an improved rendering of applications and a more pleasant user experience. Your continued donations have also funded a contract for Giannis Adamopoulos to fix every last quirk in our theming components. The merits of this work can be seen in ReactOS 0.4.5, which comes with a smoother themed user interface and the future promises to bring even more improvements. In another funded effort, Hermès Bélusca-Maïto has got MS Office 2010 to run under ReactOS, another application from the list of most voted apps. Don’t forget to install our custom Samba package from the Application Manager if you want to try it out for yourself.

...XP is probably one of the most insecure OSes still in daily use. That's pretty much the whole reason for the UAC in Vista (which everyone hated) and also why Vista and 7 broke so many XP applications.

The problem in XP is using Administrator account for everything. And the major problem is that Vista+ systems just bring in UAC instead of stop using Administrator for everything. It is like use raincoat to stay dry instead of go home.
