From the ReactOS FAQ:

Why don't you help develop Wine/Linux instead?

This is a very common FAQ, so it's placed in User FAQ also (and technical answer is given in Developer FAQ).

ReactOS works very closely with Wine, and thus both projects actually benefit from each other. We have several developers in both the WINE and ReactOS projects that work on cross-compatibility issues between the two projects.

It is our view that Linux + Wine can never be a full replacement for Microsoft(R) Windows(R). ReactOS has the potential for a much higher degree of compatibility - especially for Microsoft(R) Windows(R) drivers - which WINE does not address.

This is untrue.

You do understand that there are other ways to work closely together than accepting eachothers code, right?
