ReactOS The ReactOS project aims to be an open source Windows NT-compatible operating system which can run Windows applications and utilise Windows drivers. Obviously, this is quite a daunting task, and as such, progress has been relatively slow. As a result, project coordinator and kernel developer Aleksey Bragin has proposed a rather drastic solution.

Yes, I read the article, where did you make it clear that this would be running on top of a ReactOS kernel?

So this is a "Lets just use Wine as the Linux folks are already doing it and lets focus in our Windows compatible kernel."

The only benefit I see from this is that there will be an open source Windows compatible kernel (ReactOS kernel) where you will be able to run the Windows drivers and apps through Wine.

But Linux is already a stable platform to run Windows apps (through Wine) and the Linux drivers work just fine.

Do articles about water tell you water is wet?

Do I seriously have to start adding into articles about about alternative operating systems "This does not use the Linux kernel"? Is that what we've come to?
