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."

A featureless implementation of a bad designed system is not what I would see "a lot better" than Linux and Unix in general :-)

I'm talking about the potential, not the current state. Linux also has been in an early alpha state one day. Give it some time. Reactos doesn't want to reproduce the bugs and annoyances of Windows also, that wouldn't make sense. I think it's a lot better than Linux because Linux has matured and very few computers in the world have Linux installed, while 90% of computers use Windows with the problems we know. So, Linux isn't for everyone. Please no destructive comments ;-)

Actually, Windows NT was a poor implementation of a good design, IMHO
