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.

I'm very eager to have something that can replace Windows for me all together. I just hope that what ever choices they end up making, that this project doesn't become any more bloated than XP as far as size and resource abuse goes.

Also I'm hoping that it will allow you to remove parts of the OS that you'll never use, which is another option Microsloth never gave us.

Lastly I just hope for good compatibility, and a pleasant experience when using media related apps.

So far what I've seen has been impressive, though I wonder what became of the XBOX port?
