ReactOS "In a little over a month since version 0.3.5, we are announcing the release ReactOS 0.3.6. This release along with the rest of the 0.3.x series is still considered alpha quality software, so do not set your expectations too high. ReactOS 0.3.6 is the product of the current development focus: bugfixes, compatibility, and stability."

If you are looking for Widows OS-emulating software versions >1.0, you could always try out Wine on any Linux distribution of your choice. Runs a lot of Windows software in default config, and lots more if you tweak it a bit. If tweaking is not your cup of tea, or if you want to run Win32 games or a broader spectrum of Win32 programs in Linux, there are always the wine-derived Crossover or Cedega.

But really, according to the discussions re: "lets go to Midori"; if people really think that cutting the Win32 backwards-compatibility cord is the way to go, that can easily be done today by loading Linux and a using any of the huge number of Linux-native free programs that replace Microsoft equivalents. Oh, and it's free, too.
