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."

no people use windows because its what is farmilliar to them. people dont change because they dont find a compelling enough reason to. the sys tem is "good enough" for them. if it was a truely bad system and it were broken people would move away from it. the fact is it does things well enough to just get by and that keeps people where they are.
