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.

NT alone is meaningless (and I would still want a proper *nix with inodes, etc etc). It is Windows that is on top that people want. Sure there is the NT drivers, but I see that a being a right old mess compared with open drivers in the Linux trunk. The closed drivers and stable driver api world really does seam to be beginning to crumble. It's just not a good way of doing things.
