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.

But yes, it's hard to kill FOSS, it tends to just fizzle into obscurity, but the sources are likely still out there somewhere!

Killing it by abandonment is still a kill, I suppose...

I think one can find plenty of small abortive attempts, FOSS licensed, scattered throughout the web. And, lets be honest, no one will ever really pick up vast majority of them (of course, there's probably not much to pick up in many or most cases, not much code - so OTOH, should we count that which was never alive?)
