ReactOS ReactOS, the project to create a Windows NT-compatible operating system, has published another news update with some interesting news items. The legal position of the ReactOS Foundation has been strengthened, and now has a VeriSign certificate that might help other open source projects as well, the new ATA driver is more or less complete, and there's some progress in the area of video drivers.

Unless Microsoft drop the NT architecture, then reactos will always be relevant.

On the contrary, Microsoft dropping NT would make ReactOS more relevant than ever. There will be vital code written for NT running for decades to come. Once ReactOS becomes the only windows 2000/XP compatible OS with drivers for the latest hardware and with regular updates it will take off in a massive way.

Agreed. We still have NT4 boxes in production. A working ReactOS would give us another option (one under active development) next time the racks get short or space (or audited).
