Seems to me that the ReactOS guys are porting their OS to other platforms for the same reasons ID software is porting Doom/Quake/ET to Linux:
A. Because they can. (Trust me, nothing beats seeing your software run on 5 different platforms ;) )
B. It helps them uncover bugs on their original platform. (The lower you get [kernel/drivers] the more the platform behaves differently - hence, new and interesting bugs...)

Plus, they most likely thinking about a Windows CE replacement.
