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."

You are confusing "sufficient" with "best".

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

Actually, I live far away from my mom and Linux is the solution. My brother installed her Windows 2000 (quite a good OS according to Windows users) and it never works more than - at best - a few weeks. And that's considering she doesn't open it often because it's a bit complex.

I've installed Ubuntu 4 month ago, and hasn't come back home during that times. She opens her computer in the morning, and leaves it open and connected to the internet till she goes to bed, coming back once in a while to check if somebody she knows is online and have a chat, or just use some apps (one of them through wine).

Guess what? It's still on and running. It's even newbie-proof, while not dumbing the user like Windows.

Yes, LOL

Windows has been making me LOL since its conception. Mac too, by the way, but at least they eventually got a decent OS.

I'm really having a hard time believing this. I read everywhere on the Internet people who say they run Linux, who say they installed Ubuntu on their parents'computers, at work, in the library, etc... I have seen a few people using Macs at work, even at home. WHEREVER I GO, I HAVE YET TO SEE SOME ONE WHO USES LINUX.

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

Do you even understand what the word "sufficient" mean?
