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.

I'm hoping that since the two projects seem closely related and share code, the one goin beta will have a positive boost on the other.

I'm looking forward to being able to replace Windows with ReactOS, once it reaches good compatibility with Windows 98 it'll be good enough for my needs; even if that takes a while I'm willing to wait. Windows 98 is still good enough for most home users today, albeit that won't run the latest MS office or Visual Studio, but then that is what OpenOffice.org and mingw are for :-) . If/when it has driver compatibility that will really make it attractive.
