ReactOS "Alex Ionescu, the ReactOS kernel coordinator, has resigned. Alex first joined the project in 2004, around the 0.2.2 release. Since then, he's been at the center of quite a few squabbles about how to code the kernel. However, Alex has also been responsible for completely rewriting the kernel almost from the ground up. Today, about 60% of the kernel code is probably his. The reason for Alex's departure is because of his joining David Solomon's Expert Seminars as an instructor. Because this job would place him in close contact with many Microsoft programmers and also give him access to other Microsoft properties, continuing with the project would have resulted in possible conflicts of interest."

I don't use Linux because although being free, it doesn't work as good as Windows for me.

Fair enough, but is it really worth thousands of hours of testing, bug reporting, and fixing, just to get something that works as well for you as Windows? Just use the real Windows. Sure it's not free, but it's also not prohibitively expensive (especially with a new computer) and it will always work better than ReactOS, no matter how many developers join the team.
