ReactOS Now this is what I like to see. Smaller, alternative operating systems have been dying by the dozens these past 6 years or so, so in order for the remainder to survive, they need to work together. ReactOS and Haiku have been doing that for a while now, and the latest fruits of this collaboration is a much-improved USB stack for ReactOS.

Windows is dead in the water, ReactOS will come pre-installed on all OEM machines before the year is out.

You are kidding, right? *

I have a feeling that the OP is joking.
Now regarding XP, I would be seriously OK with an XP replacement because I have NO issues with the XP interface especially compared with Windows 7.

ReactOS may offer, once it reaches 1.0 level, a viable alternative to Windows 8 for Win32 legacy applications. However, this may also be only for older hardware unless there is a reversal in the boot-lock BIOS code being considered as part of the Windows 8 deployment.

Anyways, this is what I hope for.
