Windows After roughly 12 years of work, the Wine Project is about to take its widely used Windows translation layer to a place it has not been in all that time: beta. Wine Project leader Alexandre Julliard, who has worked on the software nearly since its beginning in 1993 and maintained it since 1994, said in an interview yesterday that the beta release is "a matter of days away." He has since updated that forecast and said it would be released on Tuesday, October 25th.

ReactOS, are working with wine project. Changing patches, and knowledgment. And yes ReactOS will be a future (1 - 2 years).

I don't tihnk that an API, can be patented. Because of that microsoft never gave any step. And because it has profital company backing up a project.

And you trolls should be happy, because windows aplications finally can be used without native windows. I sincerely do not understand, why are they so pissed of. If you want to use windows, use it. Yesterday i have installed a machine with Windows XP Pro SP2, after i downloaded 60MB of patches. Then stupidily my network drivers wouldn't work, get new drivers(solution). But windows now can find my NIC. Full reinstall needed, not every time happens but for god sake windows still have bugs, and drivers are still pain in the ass. If we don't like we don't buy it.

And yes, probably if reactos get too close from full api compatibility microsoft will launch processes just to stop development, it's a world of money and self-interest.
