ReactOS Apart from a new newsletter, ReactOS has also published its sixth interview with one of the developers. Art Yerkes, born in Philadelphia, PA, USA in 1974. He's been involved with ReactOS since 2002 and contributed primarily to the keyboard code in win32k and the network code. Lately much of the work has been networking related, as well as slowly giving birth to a PowerPC architecture port.

In the Interview:

> Sure. I miss royce and gvg a lot.

Do anybody know, what Royce and GvG now do?
I think, GvG planed to change to the WINE-project. But in the last CVS-commitments its name isn't there. So it seems, that he is also with this unhappy. It seems ROS was the only project they have worked on.

So, do anybody know, what the people who have lost ROS now do?

Isn't it possible for them to create a new Windows-clone, if they think that the ROS-auditing isn't good enough?
I also don't like it, that the people who have left ROS do no loger work on a Windows-replacement.

If they would working together to create a new project, then we would have still the power of them.

And if GvG & Co are right, that the ROS audit isn't good enough, than we would have a second OS with the same goal.
