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."

"How many are truly satisfied and how many simply don't know any better?"

99% of the userbase is non-geek and for them, XP2 or Vista is simply the best option. OSX may be easier for super-n00bs, but Windows has the software.

The idea that most people are unhappy with Windows is an urban legend.

You are confusing "sufficient" with "best".

It may be the best solution for those users, don't presume to know the motivations and desires of a few hundred million people. I think you are confusing your opinion with fact.

I doubt. What do you suggest for mom and dad instead of Windows XP? Linux? OpenBSD? LOL
