ReactOS The opensource Windows-compatible operating system ReactOS released a status update today. The highlights are the ability to run OpenOffice.org 2 applications (screenshots), kernel bugfixes, a restructured win32 subsystem, and plans about the next release (December 2007).

"Is there a live ReactOS CD yet? I couldn't find one on their website".

They really should use 7-Zip for their .ZIP archives (or "advzip -z4" from AdvanceComp). It would save them > 1 MB of download size. And if you think that's not enough (times a billion downloaders), a simple .7z archive is much smaller (liveCD is 19 MB for -mx=1, 14 MB for -mx=9). I reported this all to them in IRC a few weeks ago, but I guess everyone doesn't mind such "minimal" time and bandwidth loss. Hey, whatever, their call. ;)

The trunk builds (http://www.reactos.org/getbuilds) are in 7z. Its only the sourceforge stuff which is in zip format as this is still a more universal format.
