Hardware, Embedded Systems So, we have Intel and AMD. These guys are doing pretty well in laptops, servers, and of course desktops, but when it comes to mobile devices, they've so far been unable to adapt the x86 architecture to the stricter requirements that come with those devices. ARM, on the other hand, pretty much owns this market at this point. And you know what? It's time for Intel and AMD to get worried - really worried. ARM has just announced its Cortex-A15 MPCore chips - which will reach 2.5Ghz in quad-core configurations.

I didn't know ReactOS even ran on ARM, and I don't know why it would since practically all Windows software won't run on it as TemporalBeing pointed out. Kind of defeats to whole point of running it in the first place, doesn't it? Not to mention, the last time I tried ReactOS on x86 hardware or a virtual machine (one of the latest versions of the OS actually), it still had a long way to go. I just gave Debian as an example, but obviously there are other choices out there. The ones I was thinking of were the BSDs.
