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."

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.

Unless you have "facts" supporting the notion that it's the "best" for them my assertion is just as valid.

My "Fact" is that you don't know the motivations and desires of those millions of people, and neither do I. Everything else is just that, assertions.
