ReactOS "There has been a lot of talk about possible tainted code in ReactOS and or developers that had access to leaked Microsoft source code. This has caused a lot of speculation about the future of the ReactOS Project. I'm going to try to put those fears to rest and explain what has been going on and where we are going to go from here. There was one issue that started this discussion and it related to clean-room reverse engineering of certain code in ReactOS."

One interesting part of code in leaked windows is a complete IE5 source code. I'm sure wine folks could take advantage of it. Of course, it is hard to prove anything was looked at while doing implementation.

ReactOS folks are doing the right thing. Some of them maybe have source code to look at, but of course they won't ever admit it, and in addition they enforce a policy to have clean hands.
